Advantages "mmmm Danone" is a catchy jingle at the end of the TV ads.
Disadvantages I found it to have a watery consistency.
I just ate one of these so I am in a great position to comment on it. For me it was too thin and watery in texture and tasted like a watered down version of a regular strawberry yoghurt. So I am a bit disappointed.I paid £1.50 for a 125g six pack that included 2 strawberry ones. It was a half price offer suggesting that the normal price is £3, but I won't be paying £3 because 50p for a 125g pot of yoghurt is too expensive in my opinion.
A selling point of this yoghurt is that is has Bifidus Actiregularis in it so when I peeled the lid off I was expecting to see a scale model of a Roman Emperor inside but there wasn't one.My research tells me that Bifidus Actiregularis is in fact a trade name registered by Danone of Bifidobacterium Animalis which is a basically a gram positive anaerobic rod-shaped bacterium found in the larger intestine of humans. However, the trade name is registered only in Argentina, Austria, Bulgaria, Chile, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Romania, Russia and Spain.
I bought the yoghurt today in England so the plot thickens....... I only wish the yoghurt had thickened too before it left the production line.Danone do own the trade name Bifidus Digestivum in the UK so I won't be making a citizens arrest at dawn outside Tescos tomorrow morning after al and I'll just put the trade name "offense" down to an administrative error and leave it at that.
Anyway, does this Bifidus Whateveritissuffixedwithus actually do you any good?The short answer is I am not sure. No hang on.... the short answer is I don't know because 3 words with once apostrophe is technically shorter than 4 words, I think.
There are many scientific studies suggesting that Bifidobacterium Animalis is beneficial when ingested but it would take literally hours to trawl through all of the studies, compare and collate the data and where necessary temper or possibly discount any data from studies that have been funded by commercially interested parties. Let me be clear that I do not know who if any commercially interested companies including Danone have funded such studies but I do know that the sun will rise tomorrow morning.Okay so I've covered that but what about L.Casei immunitas? , I hear you cry. Well this Danone yoghurt does not as far as I know have any of that in it nor does it contain any Lapis lazuli, which is the semi precious gem stone covering used for the Pacific Ocean on a gem stone globe.
Now I'm starting to go a bit mad thinking about all of this. My gut instinct (gut, haha) is that yoghurt is just good for you anyway so eat yoghurt regularly and if these suped up enhanced yoghurts are the cheapest or near cheapest at any given time then buy them as they may be a bit better for you. But who really knows.Okay, I'm off to mine some Lapis lazuli.
