Yogurt is created through the bacterial fermentation of milk. The process involves adding healthy bacteria to milk in a controlled temperature environment.
Yogurt provides a dose of animal protein plus vitamins and nutrients such as calcium, vitamins B-2 and B-12, potassium and magnesium. It's an appropriate option for breakfast, snacks and other meals.
The best yogurt is homemade, since you know the quality of the milk, the container and anything you add to each batch. Most store-bought yogurt contains sugar and preservatives. I am happy to share my homemade starter and help you start making your own yogurt.
If making a batch at home isn't an option, plain Greek yogurt is a good alternative.
