We all know that yogurt is good for our health. In fact, yogurt is a functional food which provides health benefit more than common foods.

I consume yogurt sometimes, the consumption little bit increase, especially during hot season.

As you might know that Yogurt is a good source of:

- minerals (calcium, potassium, magnesium)

- vitamins (B6 and B12)

- low calories

- protein

- heart healthy fat and probiotics

Fig 02- Meal, just for illustration

Three main minerals are calcium, potassium and magnesium. Two vitamin are B6 and B12.

Probiotic may mean gut flora which are good bacteria in the certain foods to make our gut or digestive system healthier, and even to lower risk of several chronic diseases.

Yogurt in the market might be added by some kinds of important microbes, but at least contain two bacteria:

- Lactobacillus bulgaricus

- Streptococcus thermophilus

  1. Due to the beneficial bacteria in yogurt, it is also beneficial for the intestinal system, but yogurt must be fermentable. A long time ago, the Turks saw that the milk was fermented during the migration from Central Asia and it has survived until today. Its nutritional value is very high and meals cannot be eaten without it in Anatolia. especially yogurt soup is made with rice and it is delicious

  2. ...the problem with many yogurts is that they full of sugar!
