During this time people only know that yogurt is a healthy food that is good for digestion. But not many know what the nutrients contained in yogurt so that these foods can be categorized as healthy foods. Actually how healthy is yogurt?
Reporting from Women’s Health, nutritionist Karen Ansel, R.D. says that one cup of yogurt contains probiotics, calcium, potassium, and protein so that it is the healthiest food you can eat.
Not only that, yogurt that has undergone fermentation has also decreased the amount of fat so it is lower in calories. But what about the sugar content that is often added to yogurt?
Apparently, even though as much as 16 grams of sugar per serving in yogurt looks quite high, keep in mind that all yogurt, even though it hasn’t been given a taste, naturally does have a little sugar. Karen Ansel explains that natural sugars are balanced by all proteins, calcium, and potassium which are packed in it too.
