Some of the bacteria in yogurt, kefir, etc. will survive and reach the gut, but far fewer compared to encapsulated or enteric coated formulations. Even SBOs will be killed in high numbers because only some of the species are spore-formers and even those may be mostly in a vegetative state (susceptible to stomach acid) unless they were induced to form spores during the production process.
