Dairy aisle puzzle: Are all yogurts created equal?

The dairy aisle in the grocery store is a yogurt wonderland.

So many options, so many flavors! 

But are all yogurts created equal?

Before reaching for that enticing tub of yogurt with the mouth-watering image, please turn the tub around and look at the label on the back. You want to search for:

  1. Sugar content
  2. Artificial sweeteners
  3. 'Mystery' compounds (the ones you can't recognize on the ingredient list) 

Another question to ask: Has the yogurt been fermented for enough time, or only for the bare minimum? You will have no way of knowing.

How will you find the optimal yogurt, then?

The answer may be that it's not in the dairy aisle.

The answer may be that you need to make it yourself.

Homemade yogurt. Exactly. Like the one in the picture.

Make your own yogurt and control which sweetening and how much, if at all, to add.

Check out our premium-quality probiotic yogurt starter culture Yogurt Plus. It's made with a unique blend of 5 beneficial species, is fermented for 8 hours, and yields a rich, exquisite, living probiotic yogurt with no 'mystery' compounds.
