– about milk –
Bulgaria is a beautiful country in Eastern Europe, known for its breath-taking nature, long and proud history and traditions in both, culture and cuisine. Situated on the Balkan peninsula, Bulgaria is on the crossroad between Europe and Asia, so many different nations have formed our cultural variety. Undoubtedly, in between the most distinctive parts of our cuisine are the milk products, such as withe cow cheese, the world famous Bulgarian yogurt and ayran.
The unique taste of the Bulgarian yogurt as its healthy qualities are due to the impact of the bacteria “Lactobacillus Bulgaricum”. This very special bacteria is only found in our geographical region and it is considered as one of the best helpers for the immune system, regulating the human digestive system and the prevention of many diseases. Even though it was known for ages it was during his research in the Pasteur institute, that Mr. Stamen Grigorov has found and named the bacteria, understanding that it is responsible for the creation of the Bulgarian yogurt.
