This may be a stupid question.



What are active cultures? I was looking at some soy yogurt at the grocers today and they contained active cultures. I have no idea if they are vegan or not.

Right, so I was wondering what they were doing in soy yogurt. But apparently there are live active cultures that are soy-derived.

huh?



bacteria are bacteria. they just put them in the yogurt. "active" just means they were alive when they made the yogurt.



ETA: even the bacteria in dairy yogurt are vegan.

Yeah, they aren't soy derived, they just eat soy.

But they are derived from milk products, no?



I dunnnnoooo, as you can see I am highly ignorant on this subject. I just did some research on it and saw that there were specific live cultures that were "soy-derived" and others that were not. I got confused.

well maybe for dairy yogurt they culture (grow) the bacteria on milk products, but like i said: bacteria are bacteria. they are everywhere.
