Which yogurt is healthy?

  1. In the supermarket you can choose from a lot of varieties yoghurt, for example low-fat, semi-skimmed, full-fat, Greek and Bulgarian yoghurt, fruit yoghurts and cottage cheese. For your health it is best to choose the low-fat or semi-skimmed yogurt, and then the "natural" variant without added sugar. Yogurt contains many good nutrients, including protein, calcium and vitamins B12 and B2. Eating and drinking dairy products is associated with a lower risk of colon cancer and type 2 diabetes

Which yogurt is in the Wheel of Five?

  1. A yogurt fits into the Wheel of Five if it is per 100 gram: Contains less than 1.1 grams saturated Contains a maximum of 6 grams of sugar There is a vegetable variant (based on soy or almond, for example) which contains protein, calcium and vitamin B12.

When is yogurt not listed in the Wheel of Five?

  1. Types of yogurt with a relatively high amount of saturated fat are not included in the Wheel of Five. This concerns “full-fat” yoghurts with more than 1.1 grams of saturated fat per 100 grams. Low-fat yogurt contains hardly any saturated fat. Saturated fat increases bad LDL cholesterol. Too high cholesterol increases the risk of cardiovascular disease. Low-fat and semi-skimmed yogurts with more than 6 grams of sugar per 100 grams are also not included in the Wheel of Five.

What types of yogurt are there?

  1. Roughly speaking, there is stirred yoghurt and standing yoghurt. Yogurt is stirred until smooth before it is put into the packaging. Stand yogurt ripens in the package, it is thick and cannot be poured. Greek and Turkish yogurt are examples of this. Greek yoghurt Full-fat Greek yogurt usually has more fat and calories than regular full-fat yogurt. Cream has been added to Greek yogurt. A bowl of low-fat yogurt contains 56 calories, a bowl of Greek yogurt provides 188 calories. That is more than 3 times as much. The fat in yogurt consists of more than 60% saturated fat. There are also varieties of Greek yogurt with less fat or very little fat, these are often called “Greek style yogurt”. Only the variants with less than 1.1 grams of saturated fat per 100 grams are included in the Wheel of Five. Bulgarian yogurt and kefir Bulgarian yogurt is made from thickened milk and skimmed milk powder. Full Bulgarian yogurt is relatively high in saturated fat. It is even fatter than regular full-fat yogurt. Only the variants with less than 1.1 grams of saturated fat per 100 grams are included in the Wheel of Five. Kefir is lower in fat and calories than Bulgarian yogurt. In addition to lactic acid bacteria, yeasts are also added to kefir. It contains some carbon dioxide. That makes it sting a bit. Skyr Skyr is Icelandic yogurt that is low in fat and much more protein and more calories than low-fat yogurt. The variants that contain little saturated fat and not too much sugar are listed in the Wheel of Five. Proteins are more saturated than carbohydrates and fats. You can feel full for a little longer with yogurt or quark with a little more protein. On average, people in the Netherlands get more than enough protein and protein-rich yoghurt or quark is not necessary. Yogurt-like products with coconut flavor Yogurt-like coconut-flavored products can be made from cow's milk, coconut milk or soy. Coconut milk yogurt contains much more fat and saturated fat and many more calories than regular full-fat yogurt. That is why these variants usually do not fit into the Wheel of Five. The variants based on cow's milk often also contain more fat and saturated fat and can contain much more sugar than regular low-fat yogurt. Soy-based coconut-flavored yogurt contains slightly more fat and calories than regular low-fat yogurt. With yogurt-like products based on coconut milk, soy or other vegetable ingredients, it is important that there is sufficient protein and that calcium and vitamin b12 have been added. Goat yogurt Goat yogurt made from goat's milk contains about as much 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 listed in the Wheel of Five. Fruit yoghurt In addition to natural yogurt, flavored yogurt is also available, such as strawberry yogurt or forest fruit yogurt. These yogurts are usually not listed in the Wheel of Five, because they contain a relatively large amount of sugar. A bowl of low-fat strawberry yogurt contains 107 calories, a bowl of low-fat yogurt contains 56 calories. The difference is 3 lumps of sugar. You can also buy fruit yogurt with added sweeteners instead of sugar. These contain fewer calories. The types with a maximum of 6 grams of sugar and a maximum of 1.1 grams of saturated fat per 100 grams are included in the Wheel of Five.

How is yogurt made?
