Yogurt is one of the oldest foods on earth – dating all the way back to ancient Mesopotamia. Though its origins aren’t well-documented, this fermented dairy treat has been a staple in the diet of myriad people groups for thousands of years. Created by fermenting milk with bacteria, yogurt goes down smooth with a tangy aftertaste. Though traditionally made with cow’s milk, yogurt is produced with other types of milk in various cultures including the milk from camels, buffalo, goats, and others. And while many people enjoy eating plain yogurt, others love eating flavored varieties (like strawberry or coconut crème) or mixing it with their favorite fruits or granolas. No matter how you choose to eat your yogurt, you can rest assured that it is packed with essential vitamins and minerals including calcium, vitamin B-12, potassium, and magnesium. Plus, those bacteria, otherwise known as “probiotics” help keep your gut in balance.
