Actimel is a cultured yogurt shot full of live cultures and it contains vitamins D and B6 to help support the immune system. Discover our ingredients.


10 billion L.Casei cultures*. In one small bottle.

Actimel contains not just Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus (the bacteria that turns milk into yogurt), we also add our own unique bacteria, Lactobacillus paracasei ssp. Luckily, when our scientists discovered it they named it something a bit more catchy: L. casei Danone®.

L.casei Danone was selected from a wide collection of cultures and thanks to its association with the two other bacteria, the result was the delicious Actimel taste and texture we know today with 10 billion of live L. casei Danone per bottle*. We also ensure that our products always maintain the same amount of cultures all along shelf life and when they reach the gut. Indeed, L.casei Danone is a strain able to overcome the acid barrier of the stomach, reaching the gut alive.

*except for our Fruit&Veg range

Over 8 hours fermentation

Unlike other fermented milk products, Actimel undergoes a specific fermentation process , which enables L. casei Danone to grow in the best conditions and our shots to come out with 10 billion cultures except for our Fruit&Veg range.  And thanks to a strict and dedicated quality control plan, we ensure that Actimel reaches your hands with at least this amount of cultures.    


Source of Vitamins D and B6

We top up our Actimel shots with vitamins D and B6. Both these vitamins play a key role in supporting the immune system. A single Actimel shot contains 15% of your daily Reference Intake (RI) for both vitamins. Look at it as a little top-up to help keep you on top.
