Yogurt pH is 4.5‐4.6. Acidification of milk to pH 4.6 causes coagulation of the caseins (form a gel); besides changes in texture, there are also changes in flavor. Acidification retards/prevents growth of many other microorganisms. Examples of Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB): Lactobacillus bulgaricus, L.lactis, L. helveticus, Streptococcus casei. In the manufacture of fermented milk products starter cultures are used to ensure good/consistent fermentation results. Bacterial starter cultures contain selected/desirable strains of microorganisms. Examples of fermented milk food products: yogurt, buttermilk, sour cream (McGee p.46).
