Thank you!!! I am stubborn, I will stick to my zero fat Greek yogurt, preferably vanilla as I don't like fruit yogurt. I only have 2 a day..

Overview

First of all, what is yogurt? Yogurt is a fermented milk product that has been used for centuries to preserve liquid milk from spoilage. Like milk, yogurt contains important nutrients such as protein and calcium. Traditional yogurt is made by adding two bacterial cultures (Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus) to milk to “ferment” the lactose into lactic acid, giving the product a tart, sour flavor and creating the thick consistency with which we are all familiar. If the yogurt is chilled rather than heated after fermentation, the bacteria remain alive and the product can be labeled as containing “live” or “active” cultures, which makes it a probiotic (i.e., good for your gut). Studies show that live, active probiotic cultures can improve digestive health and regulation of the immune system. The practice of choosing a healthy yogurt is all about checking the nutrition facts (paying attention to added sugars and protein content) and the ingredient list (to avoid additives and sweeteners). While common ingredients like pectin and guar gum are derived from plant sources, their presence is a sign of a poorer-quality product. Sugar will show up in most flavored yogurts, so you might consider choosing a plain yogurt and adding your own fruit or berries. If you are choosing a flavored yogurt, seek one with a low sugar content. Synthetic sweeteners like high-fructose corn syrup should be completely avoided. Additionally, choose organic whenever possible. If organic is not an option, look for the words “rBGH-free,” “hormone-free” or “grass-fed” on the label.
