It is not surprising that we like to eat yogurt. It is in fact very healthy and contains many proteins that you need as building materials, vitamins, minerals and calcium. Yogurt also contains various bacteria that are good for digestion. We eat it with many dishes. For dessert, for breakfast with granola, with muesli or with it we make dips and sauces.

Yogurt is a dairy product that we almost all eat or have eaten. There are a lot of variations in this, so you can go either way. From creamy Greek yogurt to fruit varieties. Today I will tell you about a number of different types of yogurt. You might like to vary with that and taste new things.


Roughly there is stir-yogurt and stand-yogurt. Stirred yogurt is smoothly stirred before it enters the package. Standy yogurt ripens in the package, it is thick and cannot be poured. Greek and Turkish yogurt are examples of this.

Greek yoghurt

This is just like the well-known hangop 'hung', making the yogurt creamier than the normal yogurt from a pack. Turkish yogurt resembles the Greek, but is slightly less creamy. This yogurt is especially delicious with fruit, nuts and honey.

Full Greek yogurt usually contains more fat and calories than regular full yogurt. Cream has been added to Greek yogurt. A low-fat yogurt dish contains 56 calories, a Greek yogurt dish provides 188 calories. That is more than 3 times as much. The fat in yogurt consists of more than 60% saturated fat.

Fruit yogurt

You can try all kinds of flavors of yogurt today. From full to lean, but also all kinds of tasty and colorful flavors. There are of course many different flavors of yogurt with fruit, such as strawberry yoghurt, blueberry yogurt and peach yogurt. I used to like the strawberry very much. Fruit yogurt is often colored by the juice from the fruit. Mostly, there's 0% artificial color.

Bulgarian yogurt

Bulgarian yogurt is a bit thicker and made from thickened milk and skimmed milk powder. It contains a relatively high amount of saturated fat. It is even fatter than regular full-bodied yogurt. Only the variants with less than 1.1 grams of saturated fat per 100 grams are in the disk of five. Kefir contains less fat and calories than Bulgarian yogurt therefore, this is called more healthy. You can get the most health benefits from Bulgarian yogurt. In addition to lactic acid bacteria, yeast is added to kefir. It contains some carbon dioxide. That's why it stings a little.

Goat yogurt

Goat yogurt is made from goat milk and contains about the same amount of fat, protein and carbohydrates as whole yogurt made from cow's milk. Because goat yogurt contains more than 1.1 grams of saturated fat per 100 grams, it is not in the Disk of Five.
