The main (starter) cultures in yogurt are Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus. The function of the starter cultures is to ferment lactose (milk sugar) to produce lactic acid.

This blend of bacteria converts the lactose in milk to lactic acid, giving yogurt that classic, deliciously tangy taste. Each yogurt starter has a unique blend of bacteria, which produces different flavors and thicknesses.
What is kefir starter culture?

Both starter and grains contain several different strains of bacteria, which working together turn milk into delicious kefir.
