Microbiology - culturing probiotics

Hi,
I was advised by someone to empty a good quality probiotic capsule into 500g yoghurt to culture it further but I can't find much evidence Google to say whether it will culture. I leave it out of the fridge to help it add I imagine it wouldn't do it cold at any rate...
Can anyone advise am I just wasting these expensive capsules? If it does work, does it have to go into 'live' yoghurt or can I throw it in the cheap stuff?
Thanks!
Nicki

Yoghurt is what's left after the bacteria have had their fill so not so much left for the probiotic bacteria to eat.

There are no approved health claims for probiotics.


Try some porridge ?
