Nutrients in yoghurt
Yoghurt is made from milk and therefore largely contains the same nutrients as milk. Both yoghurt and milk are a natural source of protein and also have a similar mineral content. An important difference between yoghurt and milk is the amount of lactose and B-vitamins.
How is yoghurt produced?
Yoghurt is a fermented milk product. Fermentation is the process that converts milk sugar (lactose) into lactic acid with the help of various lactic acid bacteria.
