6 Impressive benefits of yogurt
We all know yogurt is good for you. But exactly how good is it?
1. Loaded with nutrients
Yogurt is packed with important nutrients and it’s relatively low in calories. It’s a good source of protein, calcium and B vitamins1
, and can help to meet your daily nutrient needs.
2. Good for your bones
Yogurt contains a significant amount of calcium, which helps build and maintain strong bones. A local survey found that we Malaysians aren’t consuming enough calcium2, which may put us at risk of getting poor bone health. So it’s a smart idea to grab some yogurt to help meet your daily calcium needs.
3. Tummy friendly
It’s a myth that if you’re lactose intolerant, you can’t eat dairy. In fact, you can still have yogurt! The lactose that’s naturally found in dairy has been eaten by the friendly bacteria3 that are found in yogurt, making it tummy friendly.
4. Healthy treat for weight watchers
Did you know that yogurt has relatively lower calories compared to high fat or sugar laden foods, such as chocolate cake? A recent study shows that people who eat high protein snacks like yogurt have better appetite control and feel full longer, also eating fewer calories in following meals4. All this makes yogurt the smart go-to-snack if you’re watching your weight.
5. Goodness of dairy protein
Yogurt provides a good amount of high quality protein, which is important to support the building and maintenance of your body tissues including muscles.
Yogurt isn’t just for eating by itself. You can use it as an ingredient to spice up your cooking. You can add it to curries, or simply as a topping for your favourite salad.
