Using Dannon yoghurt for Starter

In answer to a question on the SCD™ listserv,

Seth writes:
I was alerted to the fact that Dannon yoghurt does not list their strains (individually)
anymore. I believe they used to way back when. Instead the ingredients say: CULTURED GRADE A MILK. CONTAINS ACTIVE yoghurt CULTURES INCLUDING L. ACIDOPHILUS.

I have emailed then to verify, but my thinking is that the above does state the cultures. yoghurt cultures are: S. thermophilus and L. bulgaricus. No other strain can be legally called a yoghurt culture. Yoghurt is a product of these two strains by definition. Without them, you do not have yoghurt, just some other fermented milk product - call it what you
will.

PS. Dannon does have some info on there site that also alludes to this, but doesn't come right out and say it.
