Many types of yogurt are part of cuisines throughout the world. At P.S. It’s Healthy, we only use organic yogurt that is made from the milk of grass-fed dairy cows from local farms.
Yogurt is mainly consumed for its probiotic benefits to increase and improve digestive health of the gutt. “Probiotic” is a term used to describe foods and supplements that contain living micro-organisms. While most commercially sold yogurts contain some living bacteria and might very loosely be referred to as “probiotic” for this reason, it’s definitely incorrect to think about all yogurts as being equivalent in terms of their probiotic benefits. For example, some yogurts in the marketplace may contain less than 1,000 bacteria per gram. While that number might sound large, it’s actually quite small when you are talking about bacteria. While there are no required industry standards for labeling a yogurt as “probiotic,” a commonly adopted voluntary standard in the industry is at least 1,000,000 living bacteria per gram of yogurt.
Furthermore, the combination of strong protein content with live bacterial cultures makes yogurt a food with blood sugar benefits, even though it is a food lacking in fiber.
