What are bifidobacteria?Updated 5 months ago
Bifidobacteria are one of the main components of our intestinal flora (approx. 25 %). Just like the lactic acid bacteria, they process sugar into lactic acid. That is why they are a popular candidate for use in yoghurt production. Bifidobacteria have a controlling role in the intestinal flora. This is because they produce the toxin "bifidin" and can thus prevent the multiplication of intestinal bacteria that are harmful to health.
