After years of research, we selected 5 of the best of our own collection to create our probiotic yoghurt foods and drinks with their unique taste, texture and gut health benefits. And you can find billions of them in every Activia® products...
1. Starting with our Bifidus ActiregularisTM strain
The probiotic strain in Activia® is alive and proven to survive the passage through the entire gastro-intestinal tract. Why’s that important? Because it means that they are still viable when they reach your gut, so they add up to your own good bacteria in your body.
