Got Yogurt?

Students discuss how bacteria contributes to a variety of food products. They evaluate efforts to market food products supplemented with specific types of beneficial bacteria called probiotics. Students investigate the differences between regular yogurt and yogurt advertised as probiotic and participate in a taste test. Finally, students write letters to the Food and Drug Administration making suggestions about how they can improve their regulation of the developing probiotic market.
