Can something that tastes soooo good really be healthy?
Frozen yogurt, while not the health food its name implies, offers benefits as part of a healthy, well-balanced diet. Frozen yogurt nutrition doesn’t completely mimic its non-frozen counterpart, but it is a better choice than ice cream for those times you crave a frozen treat. The National Yogurt Association explains that frozen yogurt is not a standardized food product, as non-frozen yogurt is; therefore, read frozen yogurt labels carefully to select a product with the best nutrition profile.
Ice cream, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, contains a minimum of 10 percent milk fat, with premium ice creams containing an even greater percentage of fat. Frozen yogurt has only four percent fat when made from whole milk, and no fat at all when made from skim milk. Although the low amount of fat in frozen yogurt doesn’t translate into low calories overall due to its high carbohydrate content, frozen yogurt is a heart-healthy choice when compared to high-fat desserts such as ice cream. For the healthiest choice, choose fat-free frozen yogurt and pick your toppings wisely!
Depending on the method of production and the types of cultures used, frozen yogurt may have as many live and active cultures as non-frozen yogurt. Because frozen yogurt is flash-frozen rather than frozen slowly, the probiotics—beneficial bacteria that aid in digestion—are not destroyed during the freezing process. Instead, describes the National Yogurt Association, the cultures go into a dormant state in the cold, and then, when you eat the yogurt and heat the cultures back to body temperature, they become active once again and provide the same probiotic health benefits as non-frozen yogurt.
We definitely choose frozen yogurt in our house, rather than ice cream, and the kids LOVE it. With a Yogurtland right down the street, it’s our go to spot for a special treat!
