Overwhelmed in the yogurt aisle?

Nutrition facts of Yogurt: Keep it simple!

In any local grocery store there is generally an overwhelming amount of yogurt options that can get confusing. Lets keep yogurt simple though. The very best yogurt option has a fat content with minimal ingredients and live active cultures.

The tangy taste in yogurt is actually the live active cultures known as the probiotics that are good for digestion. Plain yogurt with minimal ingredients tastes best when fresh fruit and honey are added at home. A personal favorite by far is Fage 2%. Here is an example of what to look for on a yogurt label:

Live Active Yogurt Cultures:

  • L. Bulgaricus
  • S. Thermophilus
  • L. Acidophilus
  • Bifidus
  • L. Casei
