Some severe: Mostly stomach cramps and diarrhea for some people but people can have a severe allergic reaction, which causes breathing trouble and can even cause death, rarely seizures, a severe skin condition called toxic epidermal necrolysis and steven-johnson's syndrome. Most people do not have any trouble with it. I always recommend eating yogurt with an active culture to help the stomach issues.
