Bio yogurt, probiotic and active natural yoghurt are they the same?

Bio yogurt nowadays is a popular commercial commodity and many companies have marketed it as a beneficial drink, using its associations with improved health as an effective selling point. You have probably heard of the term 'friendly bacteria', this has become a popular tag line and a favourite amongst the advertisers of these speciality health products. This is because bio yogurts contain a bacteria called Lactobacillus acidophilus which is also referred to as an active culture and is what distinguishes it from ordinary yoghurt.

Yogurt as well as milk contain lactose (the sugars in milk) which the body can sometimes find difficult to break down, the 'good' bacteria or 'active' bacteria encourages the body to digest the dairy product more effectively. When people have an adverse reaction to dairy products its usually the lactose which is causing it, that's why it is categorised as lactose intolerant.
