You're confusing the US of A with reality as a whole.
People have been eating yoghurt for thousands of years...
I'm not sure it was a fringe food in the US in the 60's... Kellog fed his patients yoghurt in the early 1900's."

|"Perhaps I should have said "In the typical grocery store in the United States in the 1960's, yogurt was a fringe food". I grew up then, so I know; you might have been able to find one brand, like Dannon, if you looked hard enough. Nothing like today, when you find a dozen different brands, each with a dozen different styles. I, on the other hand, grew up close to the UM campus in Ann Arbor, the no-sugar-added yogurt-eating, kefir-slurping, granola-munching capital of the Midwest."

It will be many years before they have a safe process for making this stuff in large quantities.
