Yogurt or yoghurt is a pudding-like food made from milk fermented in a culture of (typically) Lactobacillus delbrueckii bulgaricus and Streptococcus salivarius thermophilus. "Live active culture" is a type of yogurt that has the live bacteria still in it, also known as Curd in the Indian subcontinent. Some people believe that this "live" yogurt has special health benefits. Many websites and blogs include pages that serve as instruction books on how to make yogurt out of milk, such as one run by Brendon and Ryan Ross. The other variety is pasteurized yogurt, officially known as Heat Treated Fermented Milk, where the yogurt is heated to kill the bacteria. This pasteurized yogurt is usually available in supermarkets.
