Natural Yogurt

The making of yogurt probably originated in Asia and Eastern Europe thousands of years ago. With this came the discovery of its many dietary and medicinal benefits.

A culture of special bacteria is added to boiled milk which is then kept warm for several hours during which time the bacteria multiply and convert milk sugar (lactose) into lactic acid. It is the lactic acid which precipitates the curdling of the milk into yoghurt at the same time as suppressing the growth of harmful bacteria, giving a product with a longer life.

Natural whole milk yoghurt has a similar nutritional value to whole boiled milk, being rich in protein and minerals, especially calcium and phosporus. Low fat and fat free yoghurts are made from skimmed milk powder; they have a slightly higher carbohydrate and protein content than whole milk yoghurts. The bonus is that protein, calcium and phosporus are more easily absorbed from yoghurt than from milk as they are partially digested during the fermentation process.

Lactobacillus Acidophilus is probably the most commonly used bacteria culture today and this is thought to colonize the intestines with essential digestive micro-organisms, probably due to the fact that yoghurt bacteria aid the synthesis of valuable vitamins which in turn stimulate the growth of beneficial intestinal bacteria, discouraging and destroying harmful ones.

Yoghurt can also be used in a similar way in the treatment of thrush.
