About This Food

Description

Yogurt has been a culinary staple in Asia, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe for centuries. In 1931, commercial production of the cultured dairy product began in the United States.

Be sure to choose organic yogurt made from milk that is free of hormones. And opt for plain yogurt, adding fresh or frozen berries and stevia, as most flavored yogurt is either loaded with sugar or artificial sweeteners.  

When labeled as “contains live and active cultures”, yogurt provides health-promoting probiotics.
