Microbe of the Month: Streptococcus thermophilus

It is believed that S. thermophilus has been used since the domestication of animals (for some 10,000 years). It has a number of attributes that make it a useful probiotic for humans. S. thermophilus has the distinction of being one of the most consumed organisms in fermented food and probiotics, with it being present in the millions of tons of yogurt and cheese produced each year. Do you have Streptococcus thermophilus in your microbiome?
