Hello, Anon! Thank you for writing.

A UTI or urinary tract infection is an infection in any part of the urinary system, the kidneys, bladder, or urethra.

In order to help differentiate between brands containing live cultures and those that don’t, the National Yogurt Association (NYA) has created a “live and active cultures” seal. Look for it on the container.
