Yogurt, a study that destroys all our beliefs: disturbing
Yogurt is one of the most popular and consumed diet products. However, according to a recent study, it appears that the vast majority of yogurts are not only unhealthy but harmful products as well. Here are the details of the disturbing discovery.
There are many consumers who eat yogurt as a healthy alternative to other snacks. Moreover, the idea that it is a healthy and beneficial product for health is widespread. On the contrary, recent research by the University of Leeds has shown that this food is not healthy at all and that it can pose risks to our health. But why is yogurt so bad for our health now? Let’s be clear.
Many yogurts, at least 90% of what we find on supermarket shelves, do not deliver the benefits they promise, and on the contrary, appear to be harmful to our health. Here’s what scientists from the University of Leeds’ School of Food and Nutritional Sciences say. Researchers analyzed a sample of 900 yoghurts and the result was alarming! A large number of analyzed foods were found to be harmful to our health.
But why is yogurt harmful to our health? Well, it seems that many of these foods, despite their promise of tremendous benefits to the body, contain a huge amount of sugars, flavors and sweeteners. In short, they may be very tasty but undoubtedly unhealthy.
Just to give an idea, in fruit yogurt suggested as low-fat yogurt, in some cases, there is a sugar content equal to or greater than that of a sweet drink like Coca-Cola. Therefore, eating this food frequently can lead to serious damage to our health, such as weight gain and an increased risk of diabetes.
Therefore, it seems that yogurt from a healthy and useful product for the daily diet, can become a real breakthrough for consumer health. Unfortunately, to date, there are still many consumers who do not review the nutritional profile printed on the package, and choose the product based on their personal tastes. For this reason, experts recommend checking that the ingredients of this food are only milk and enzymes. Among my favorites: Greek and natural yogurt.
However, it should be clear that it is certainly possible to buy and consume “mimetic yogurt” from time to time, but it is always advisable to keep in mind what exactly it is, i.e. sweets that are rich in sugar and calories!
