Bacteria Enriched Yoghurts Provide No Health Benefits

1615

The health benefits of bacteria enriched yogurts are actually a fake, according to European Food Safety Authority (ESFA). 2006 large-scale study showed that out of 180 supposedly healthy ingredients, 10 are not beneficial at all while the health benefits of the rest 170 have not been confirmed.

In addition, using yoghurts as probiotics is ineffective, and bifidus- and lactic acid bacteria in diary products do not promote better stomach microbial flora or dysbacteriosis treatment.

Experts say that sales pitch that good bacteria will fight bad bacteria has nothing to do with reality. Since 2006, EFSA has banned the use of unproven information on food health benefits for advertising purposes.

  1. Being more aware of how eating good food can contribute to good health and skin your article stating bacteria enriched yoghurts having no benefits on our health is an interesting statement. This will have me researching further on this, especially as we know there are always adverts talking about such yoghurts and what they can do for you.
