11 Countries that Consume the Most Yogurt

Page 1 of 12

Yogurt being a very healthy type of food is a fact that is acknowledged in all the 11 countries that consume the most yogurt. If you want to take a step back along the process, you can take a peek at the 10 countries that consume the most milk. While being exceptionally nutritious, yogurt is also rich in many vitamins and certain minerals that are a core part of maintaining good health. It is usually produced by using bacteria to ferment milk. The bacteria used in making yogurt is of two types – lactobacillus bulgaricus and streptococcus thermophilus. Those two strains of bacteria are usually collected in “cultures” or from previous batches of yogurt so when mixed with milk, they engage the fermentation process and thicken the milk, giving it its distinct taste.

As a matter of fact, the word yogurt comes from a Turkish verb which literally translates to thicken. Of course, the words aren’t the same since after the popularization of the term, it changed to a certain degree. However, the way of preparing and consuming yogurt have certainly remained close to what they were hundreds of years ago because it is a fairly simple process to make it. In fact, a lot of people make it at home all the time. You only need some fresh cow’s milk and a tablespoon of yogurt for every liter of milk or so. Boil the milk, mix up in jars, wrap in a warm blanket overnight and you’ll have some magically transformed homemade yogurt in the morning.

However simple, though, yogurt has a plethora of health benefits. Lots of people use it as a home remedy for certain dermatological problems as well as mild infections. Eating yogurt is also said to reduce the risk of high blood pressure and you could certainly use the calcium and plethora of vitamins in it too. If you are lactose-intolerant you might think that yogurt is something way out of bounds for you. However, studies have shown that lactose-intolerant people can tolerate yogurt a lot better than other milk products because of the enzymes in the milk transform to create the final product. Enough trivia, though – let’s look at the 11 countries where the people definitely love yogurt in all possible ways.
