Hi Micheal,
I've read through my food microbiology book and found out that you could
also find S. thermophilus in cheese and yogurt.  Well they are both have
milk as raw ingredients because S. thermophilus is a homolactic bacteria
that ferment glucose to lactic acids.  So I guess that narrows it down.
