What exactly is "Grade B" yogurt? Anyone know?

Posted on 07/22/2010 9:12:26 AM PDT by Scythian

I'm sitting here eating my lunch, dreaming of myself and Sarah Palin riding off on unicorns together when I reach down to open my yogurt and for some reason the term "Grade A Yogurt" pops up at me and I think to myself "Hmmm, I wonder what Grade B yogurt is ...."

Don't zot me bro !


TOPICS: Chit/Chat; Weird Stuff

I’ll google later when i’m off my phone but i believe grade a is pure yogurt while b is yogurt with fillers like starch and gelatin.

I dont really know, but my best guess would be that it is made with Grade A milk.

Hard to find milk that isnt Grade A, isnt it?

According to the White House natural foods czar “Grade A” is union made, “Grade B” is produced in a right-to-work dairy.

Don’t sneer at grade b yogurt...I am in the 10th day of the Activia challenge and haven’t left my house since the 2nd day.
I was tired of riding elevators and hearing people brag about their clean colons...now I can brag along with them.

Are you serious, Activa had that big of an effect, my wife buys it sometimes but I never ate it enough probably for it to have an effect.

Somehow the terms “clean” and “colon” in the same sentence is just wrong on so many levels.

Grade B maple syrup is richer bolder flavor than Grade A maple syrup.

Superior artisanal isolates of thermophilic lactic acid bacteria producing high lactic acid and β-galactosidase were isolated from traditional Turkish yogurt samples from the Toros mountain region from a highly bio-diverse environment. A full factorial statistical design, with the factors of types of strains and medium formulations under static and agitation conditions, were applied to investigate the effects on β-galactosidase and lactic acid production. Streptococcus thermophilus 95/2 and Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. thermophilus 77 exhibited remarkable potential as promising starter culture candidates valuable to various applications in the dairy industry. The efficiency of cell disruption methods was investigated on the extraction of intracellular β-galactosidase enzyme. Lysozyme enzyme treatment was determined as the most effective method, which resulted in approximately 1.5 and 10 times higher enzyme activity than glass bead and homogenization treatment, respectively. Keywords: β-galactosidase; cell disruption; lactic acid; Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus; Streptococcus thermophilu

Wow, that is EXACTLY what I was going to say. Nice use of the “beta” character, by the way. I wish I could do that.

Introducing more questionable organisms that lead grade A to decay to grade B? (or C,D,E & F)

I suspect it means that it contains what is considered to be an acceptable level of rat feces, human fingers, and salmonella bacteria. Look on the ingredients list.

Okay, let me see if I can remember this correctly from my Mayfield Dairy factory tour a few years ago :)

Milk is divided into 3 grades: A (lots of cream rising to the top); C (very little cream rising to the top) and B (somewhere between A & C).

Yogurt specified as Grade A would be yogurt made from Grade A milk. It may or may not be possible to even make a Grade B yogurt as it doesn't have as much cream as Grade A -- but then again I really have no idea as I have never actually made yogurt - lol.

On an interesting note in some states even if they made a Grade B you might not be able to buy it. In Indiana for example - In the Indiana Code Title 15, Article 2, Chapter 23 under Milk and Milk Products is a paragraph which states:

"(a) Only Grade A pasteurized milk, Grade A pasteurized milk products, and manufacturing grade milk products that meet the requirements of this chapter, including rules adopted under this chapter, may be sold to the final consumer or to restaurants, soda fountains, grocery stores, or similar establishments."

Does that help?

Not to worry.
It's the same as Grade A yogurt with a few changes ...

Here is some dairy product grading information: http://drinc.ucdavis.edu/dairyp/dairyp11_new.htm

They do not seem to include yogurt. When I was in college (50) years ago, I found Grade B butter one time. At that time it was made from sour cream and its taste was better than Grade A. I never saw it again anywhere. I suspect people would not buy anything if it was not Grade A.

As best I remember from my 70 years ago working in a dairy, I think Grade A milk was not pasteurized and Grade B was. We hand cleaned the cows before milking. It was called Grade A. Maybe things have changed???
