Yogurt is formed when milk is fermented by certain good bacteria, like this one, Lactobacillus bulgaricus, rather than one of the bad ones, which produce toxins causing the milk to spoil. Like many discoveries, the first yogurt was probably accidental. We'll never know for sure, but this food that has been made for over four thousand years is alive (literally) and well.
The perfect addition for anyone with an interest in biology or food history, or perhaps as a thoughtful gift for your dietician, why not team Yogurt with Acidophilus as a matching pair? Giant Microbes are also excellent teaching aids as they assist students to develop an understanding of biology while taking a fun, hands on approach.
Yogurt is 160mm long, 60mm wide and 45mm thick, made of very pale purple medium pile polyester plush with polyester filling and plastic eyes.
Not for children under three years of age as parts may dislodge and become a choking hazard.
