Yogurt consumption and impact on health conditions

We published a couple of articles about the healthy yogurt nutrients and yogurt health benefits. In this blog, we will focus on how consuming yogurt can be even more beneficial for individuals who have certain health conditions.

If you happen to have lactose intolerance, milk allergy, diabetes or you are obese/overweight, keep on reading on the impact yogurt may have on your overall health and well being.

Lactose intolerant individuals

Lactose Intolerance – yogurt contains milk sugar called lactose.
Lactose-intolerant individuals might have side effects when consuming yogurt. Yogurt tolerance among lactose-intolerant individuals is mainly because yogurt contains less lactose than milk, delays gastric emptying, and contains lactic acid bacteria. The lactic acid bacteria must be live and present in sufficient quantities (108 bacteria/ml) to be of benefit. By consuming yogurt, lactose-intolerant individuals can benefit from getting the needed calcium requirements. Calcium deficiency leads to osteoporosis. It is also suggested to consume smaller portion of yogurt so there is enough lactase available in the intestine to digest the lactose.
