Streptococcus salivarius subsp. thermophilus, along with Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus is best known for its role in yogurt manufacture. Both are part of a group of lactic acid bacteria which metabolize lactose and produce lactic acid. The slow production of acid lowers pH of the milk and causes the casein micelles to coagulate and to form a gel.
