    Does my homemade yogurt have probiotics/active cultures in it?

    I just made my first batch of yogurt. I used 2 T. of Fage 2% yogurt as my starter, along with my 1% milk. I'm wondering if my new batch now has its own active cultures (are probiotics something else? ) - just 'cuz, or do I have to add something in there? It's really good - I poured off the whey that had separated and it's nice and thick. I had it with some fresh, seasonal local honey this morning and am delighted. But is it really doing anything "good" for me other than I know what's in it and I'm getting a serving of dairy?

    To err is human, to forgive, canine.

    Well, you know it has live, active cultures in it, or it wouldn't have turned into yogurt.

    It'll have whatever bacteria were in your starter.
