We all love yoghurt, but do you know what yoghurt actually is and why it’s so good for you?


How Is Yoghurt Made?

Yoghurt is made by the bacterial fermentation of milk. This can range from dairy, soy or coconut milk. Basically this means that bacteria, aka “yogurt cultures,” turn the naturally occurring sugars in milk into an alcohol. This process produces a substance called lactic acid, which then causes the protein within milk to curdle, producing yogurt. This is also the reason why yoghurt has a naturally tangy flavour. The live yoghurt cultures that are used to make yoghurt, including Cocobella yoghurt, are Bifidobacterium lactis and Lactobacillus acidophilus. These two probiotics have many health benefits and work in amazing ways to keep your body functioning at it’s best!


What Are The Health Benefits of Yoghurt?

One of the primary health benefits that probiotics has is improving gut & digestive function. Probiotics help balance your gut flora which is needed to prevent numerous diseases, is essential for maintaining a healthy weight & help reduce you risk of chronic diseases like diabetes & even depression! Gut flora also helps manufacture your vitamins K & B & aids proper immune functioning. So consuming yogurt and these beneficial bacteria is essential for your overall health & wellbeing.
