What Exactly is Yoghurt?

25th Jun 2020

Yoghurt is a cultured milk product in which two types of bacteria are used. These bacteria act on the lactose (natural sugar found in milk) and protein in milk to give a fine soft curd with a slightly acid flavour. Yoghurt is a good source of protein and calcium.

Plain or fruit yoghurts are all good. Some have a more sugar than others but that should not be a worry to most people. All yoghurts are nutritious.

People with diabetes may include yoghurt in their diet.

To increase protein of yoghurt add 1 - 2 tablespoons of powdered milk to ½ cup yoghurt. Opened yoghurt will keep up to 5 days in the refrigerator.

Yoghurt can be

  •  Served as dessert or a snack
  •  Used as a dessert topping instead of custard or cream
  •  Used instead of cream in dishes such as Stroganoff
  •  Used to make a salad dressing
  •  Put into a fruit smoothie
