A unique mix of 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. 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 per bottle***. We also ensure that our little yogurt drinks always maintain the same amount of cultures all along shelf life and when they reach your gut. Indeed, L. casei Danone is a strain able to overcome the acid barrier of the stomach, reaching the gut alive.

What are the vitamins contained in Actimel and what are their benefits?

Keeping you healthy is our top priority, that’s why we add Vitamin B6 and D to our Actimel yogurt drinks. Both are important for supporting the normal function of the immune system and keeping you well.

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 contain 10 billion cultures***. And thanks to a strict and dedicated quality control plan, we ensure that Actimel reaches your fridge 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 33% of your daily Reference Intake (RI) for Vitamin D and 15% of your daily Reference Intake (RI) for Vitamin B6. Look at it as a little top-up to help keep you on top.
