If you're buying yogurt choose the one which is at least 2-3 percent milk fat, it will taste a lot better and have more nutrition than fat-free ones.

I only eat yogurt if it is certified fair trade, non-GMO, gluten free, organic, vegan, kosher, hallal, macro-biotic, pro-biotic, anti-oxidant, guru-tested, Rodale Press approved, and every owner, employee, and stockholder of the companies that make, transport, and sell the yogurt pass a battery of ever changing political, ethnic, gender, and ethical standards.

Oh, it also has to taste good and not cost much.

Full fat yogurt with honey is god's own food. So. Freakin. Delicious. I also got this french style yogurt at the farmer's market last week that was incredibly good... probably gonna go back for more of that today.

Agree. I destroy about a quart of this stuff a day. Fat? Sugar? Don't care ... taste is incredible. Sort of sweet and tangy at the same time, thick texture almost like butter. Love it. Cheap too, it's like $3.49/qt at Winco Foods.

Yuck I am in the minority I canít stand yogurt and pop tarts. My friends on fishing trips taunt me with pop tarts.

As said, all yogurt isn't created equal. What don't you like about it? The the texture? The taste? Do you dislike all dairy? What about frozen yogurt? I like yogurt because its stingy and not as sweet as ice cream.

Anyway, I used to hate Pop Tarts too at first, but they stopped using chemically enhanced artificial fillings and now they taste a lot more like real fruit. They are not something I buy, but I wouldn't find eating them objectionable when necessary.

Easily corrected with a lime squeezed over a cup of it, or tossing in a handful of juice blueberries or raspberries.

In a blended drink, it's all but impossible to discern it contains yogurt, with the other ingredients taking center state (flavor-wise).

But, yeah, straight up, it can be a fairly flavorless thing. With a handful of suitable fresh fruits, it can be transformed.



My own personal favorite: whole milk + cultures. Ends up a bit more sour than one expects, though not as sour as sour cream. In my area, the locally-accessible stuff isn't flavored up. As an addition to other ingredients, it's a great way to get fats and proteins but keeping carbs/sugars reasonable. Combined with high-fiber flax seeds, or (better still) hemp hearts as the OP does, it's a fairly nutritious food.

Yogurt is a foundation food: its not something typically eaten by itself. You add something sweet, and it becomes the ages old combination of sweet and sour that is most palatable and appealing to the taste buds.

The scientists looked at 4 specific vitamins. If this was a food industry funded study, it wouldn't surprise me at all if they picked 4 vitamins that were known to survive freezing temperatures. That link alone doesn't convince me.

It doesn't appear to be a food industry funded study. They picked 4 vitamins which are commonly designated as beneficial. I didn't spend much time researching but I would accept this study over proclamations from random guys on the internet.

There are worse things to eat than 20-30 frozen blueberries in porridge

One study is not intended to be totally convincing. Rather, what it does is provide two primary functions: 1) support a claim through documentation, and 2) substantiate that claim goes beyond just spurious information.

Since it is a study, there is some scientific process involved and in order to disprove it you then must provide information that counters its validity or show where it may not be applicable to the topic. A study can additionally provide information and insight on a particular item or category paving the way to further investigation.

Believe it or not, even an opinion can be valid support of a claim if it comes from someone who is a professional or has experience within a particular area. Not everything needs to require a scientific study to be valid or believable. Remember, the first rule of a scientific model is observation.

I've learned that when someone doesn't want to accept a claim they will find a way to invalidate it where it makes sense or not. When that happens, its best to just leave the discussion and move on to the next topic.

Not picking on you but I find this line of thinking interesting. What science led you to believe that freezing does diminish nutrient content so that you need convincing otherwise?

I agree.




But in case they need to read more ...

https://www.sciencedirect.com/scienc...89157517300418


Also, as odd as it may seem, I actually encountered someone at work who questioned my use of steam fresh veggie packets. "They look good" she said, "But they're so full of sugar and salt and other chemicals added during the freezing process. You should check the packages!"

I was pretty sure she was wrong, so I checked the packages. Yep wrong. Just the veg.

It sounds like one of those ideas that circulate on social media.

I offered a bunch of apples from my backyard tree to my neighbour who was into juicing.
She said there were too many to use immediately and she couldn't freeze them because freezing destroys the nutrients.

A great way to freeze apples is to put them in a pie and freeze that! Or just eat the pie.

That was a couple of years ago and I think it was the first time I'd heard of freezing destroying the nutrients. Now I hear it all the time, but not from any credible source. Pies are good, freezing them is fine, I get tired of making the crusts.

Explains why measles cases are on the rise. Many have trouble assessing the quality of their information sources.

Used to consume some yogurt until I was diagnosed with Aggressive Prostate Cancer and found that research is indicating that dairy can be a contributing factor in the development of PCa as is meat of all types, sugar, eggs, alcohol .....

This thread reminded me of a news item from some years ago about a part of Russia where many people live past the ago of 100. In addition to a life of much exercise, important reasons for their long lives seems to be a diet of fresh and natural foods that includes yogurt and strong links to community. https://gbtimes.com/russias-most-ama...ongevity-cases. In poking around the web on the topic of longevity, I found some very remarkable and interesting people.

I eat two 100g Yoplait Creamy yogurt with half a serving of Quaker Harvest Crunch Original every morning one hour after my commute to work. Two 100g Yoplait yogurt gives me the same amount of proteins than a 100g Greek yogurt but is more filling (duh) and gives me more calories (higher in sugar).

Useless sugar cal.? I hope that you weren't bragging about that?

100g = 7 oz.

Anyway, with all this talk of yogurt, I was in the supermarket this evening and picked up a 32 oz container of strawberry yogurt that was on sale for $2.99. I would have gotten Greek yogurt but they only had honey and it was $5.99. And since I only eat yogurt infrequently now, I didn't want it that much.
