5 benefits of Yogurt

Curd and Yoghurt are indeed used interchangeably in many parts of (mostly urban) India and the region in general, though probably not in the UK, the US and some other parts of the world.

We will spell out the benefits of Yogurt.

But there is a difference between curd and yogurt/yoghurt (used in UK).

Yogurt (plain yogurt from whole milk) is 81% water, 9% protein, 5% fat, and 4% carbohydrates, including 4% sugars (table). A 100-gram amount provides 406 kilojoules (97 kcal) of dietary energy.

Yogurt and curd are similar in that bacteria are used to produce lactic acid to thicken the milk.

Curd  contains one type of good bacteria ( a wide variety of bacteria like Lactobacillus) whereas Yogurt contains two types of good bacteria (Streptococcus and Lactobacillus)

  4. Calcium supplementation. Everyone knows that there is high calcium in the milk, and the yogurt is also high in calcium, but the calcium in the yogurt is usually combined with the lactic acid in the yogurt, and the calcium combined with the lactic acid is more easily absorbed by the body. Therefore, if you can drink a bottle of yogurt between 30 minutes and two hours after eating, it is especially effective for calcium supplementation. It will be better for calcium supplementation to drink a cup of yogurt before going to bed.
  5. Lower cholesterol. Drinking yogurt regularly can lower blood fat. Cholesterol is an indispensable part of human blood. But now people’s living standards are getting higher and higher, so many people have high blood lipids. This is because blood cholesterol levels in the blood are increasing, leading to blood diseases. Yogurt contains 3-3 hydroxy-3 methyl glutaric acid and lactic acid, both of which have the effect of lowering blood cholesterol.
