What is frozen yogurt?

Frozen yogurt, or yogurt ice cream, is a new type of cold drinking that uses yogurt as the main ingredient, and its shape and taste is similar to ice cream. It originated in the eastern part of United States, the American people love eating it very much, because its sales method, self-service, is very interesting ! You can place various flavors of frozen yogurt to your paper cup, and add fruit, fudge, chocolate beans and syrup to it, which makes it taste better. Yogurt making machine in Pakistan is very popular, and most people like to eat it in daily, especially children.

Why people think frozen yogurt is healthier than ice cream?

There are two main reasons. The first reason is that the main ingredient used in frozen yogurt is yogurt instead of cream, so the fat content is generally only about half that of ice cream. Secondly, people think that the probiotics in yogurt can help intestinal peristalsis, which can help people to digest easily. As a result, many people believe that frozen yogurt is a healthier than ice cream, and they are willing to buy frozen yogurt instead of their favorite ice cream.

Is this argument right?

In some ways, both of the above reasons are correct. But although frozen yogurt is low in fat, sugar is higher than ice cream! Four ounces of frozen yogurt can contain up to 20 grams of sugar, while ice cream is usually around 15 grams. Besides, the difference in calories is not so obvious, each small cup of frozen yogurt is 50-100 calories less than ice cream.

Up to now, the Food and Drug Administration has not given a standard definition of frozen yogurt. People always hope that the frozen yogurt they drink contains probiotics as much as possible. However, when people use yogurt making machine in Pakistan to make yogurt, each store has its own set of making methods, and its strains, activities, and ingredients vary widely. ,In the United States, if you want to know whether your frozen yogurt contains active probiotics, you can look for the label with Live & Active Cultures on the package, which is certified by The National Yogurt Association.

All in all, frozen yogurt is not healthier than ice cream, and low-fat ice cream also is low-calorie. So you can choose according to your preferences when buying it.
