FAQ

Is Activia suitable for children?

It is suitable for the whole family, including children who are looking to eat a healthy, balanced diet.

What is Bifidobacterium (animalis) lactis?

Bifidobacterium (animalis) lactis is a gram-positive anaerobic bacteria belonging to the same category as lactic bacteria, as it produces lactic acid during the fermentation process. This bacterium is part of the bifidobacteria family.

In summary, Bifidobacterium (animalis) lactis is a exclusive strain of bifidobacteria known in Canada under the name BL Regularis, and was specially selected by Danone Vitapole (Daniel Carasso Research Centre). BL Regularis is an active, living culture used only by Danone. BL Regularis contributes to the proper functioning of the digestive system*.

* When consumed as part of a balanced diet and healthy life style.

Is there a risk in eating too much Activia? Are there any counter-indications?

We have no specific information on over-consumption of Activia because fermented milks are regular consumption food. However, throughout our clinical studies, certain subjects had to ingest three portions per day for 15 days, and we noted no particular complaints - even from elderly people who were not used to ingesting such quantities of yogurt.

All over-consumption can alter the dietary routine, so it is important to ingest foods from all necessary groups every day.

Counter-indication: Allergies to milk.

Is it possible to consume Activia after its expiration date?

Like all fermented milk products, it must ideally be consumed before the expiry date. However, if it is only slightly past the expiry date, there is no danger. The product will simply contain fewer living bacteria and the taste could be slightly more acidic.

What is the source of gelatin in Activia?

The gelatine in Activia is from a bovine source.

Why are there trans fats in Activia?

Trans fatty acids (TFA) found in food have two principal origins: industrial or animal. Animal-based TFA originate from the bacterial transformation of unsaturated fatty acids in the rumen (stomach) of ruminants. Industrial-based TFA are linked to the partial hydrogenation of oils and edible fats, as well as the deodorization of oils. Milk and milk products contain small quantities (5%) of TFA naturally. TFA can also be found in products that originate from ruminants (cows, sheep, goats, etc.), but only in small quantities.
