Nowadays, probiotics are considered in the development of “functional food” products due to their benefits to human health. Food products containing bifidobacteria have largely been of dairy origin including yogurts. Yogurt is a fermented milk product that has been prepared traditionally by allowing milk to sour at 40–451oC. Modern yogurt production is a well-controlled process that utilises ingredients of milk, milk powder, sugar, fruit, flavours, colouring, emulsifiers, stabilisers, and specific pure cultures of lactic acid bacteri (Streptococcu thermophilus and Lactobacillus bulgaricus) to conduct the fermentation process. A number of health benefits have been attributed to bifidobacteria, which are colonization resistance, anticarcinogenic activity, reduction of the risk of colon cancer, stimulation of immune functions, improving digestibility of lactose, improving vitamin and antibiotic activity, and cholesterol-lowering ability
