How can the Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Streptococcus thermophilus, and Lactobacillus acidophilus bacteria be grown from yogurt to be studied?. Specifically, I would like to determine the number of bacteria in a cup of yogurt as it approaches its expiration date (it has been proven that the number diminishes.) How can these bacteria be isolated from the milk in the yogurt to be studied? Can yogurt be simply placed on an agar plate? What do these bacteria require in a culture?
