Yogurt is a natural choice for a healthy diet

Yogurt is a natural choice for a healthy diet(NC)–Yogurt, a dairy product produced by the bacterial fermentation of milk, is an important part of a healthy diet and continues to be one of the fastest-growing categories at the grocery store. Not only is yogurt a delicious snack, but it is also rich in protein, calcium and important vitamins.

Yogurt contains active bacteria cultures, or “good bacteria” which are responsible for many of the health and nutritional benefits — including boosting the immune system, promoting digestive health and preventing a variety of infections. In addition, active bacteria cultures help to reduce yogurt's levels of lactose, making it a delicious alternative for the lactose intolerant.

Remember to read the label carefully to avoid sugary yogurts that claim to have healthy ingredients. Avoid yogurts with artificial ingredients and don't forget to take into account sugar content, in addition to any other additives and flavouring.

Experts recommend choosing yogurts with no added sugar, sweeteners or flavours, such as Dairyland's natural and wholesome Nature's Treat yogurt. In addition to this healthy choice, companies such as Dairyland are now adding DHA to their yogurt brands like Li'L Ones. DHA is an important omega-3 fatty acid critical in the development and function of vital organs. It is helpful to remember these facts when picking yogurt for you or your family.

More information on Nature's Treat and Li'L Ones can be found online at www.dairyland.ca and www.lilones.ca.
