Health Benefits of The City Yogurt Frozen Yogurt vs Ice Cream
The classic case of the health benefits of ice cream versus frozen yogurt continues to baffle the sweet craving public. Here are some conclusions. When considering the health benefits of frozen yogurt versus ice cream most people immediately look at fat and sugar content. It’s true, not all frozen yogurt is fat free and some can be high in sugar content, however there are several healthy frozen yogurts available, such as City Yogurt’s frozen yogurts that are non-fat and low calorie or the no sugar added blends. But what about the additional health benefits of frozen yogurt? Fat and sugar content is not all there is to consider.
One major health benefit of all natural frozen yogurts is the probiotic content. Frozen yogurt that contains live bacterial cultures promotes better digestion. According to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), a division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), there is some evidence that specific probiotics are helpful for urinary tract infections, irritable bowel syndrome, may reduce the recurrence of bladder cancer and manage atopic dermatitis (eczema) in children. Probiotic content is good bacteria that your body needs that can boost the immune system, enhance digestion, and some evidence has shown may assist in lowering cholesterol levels. At City Yogurt we use yogurt which maintains active live cultures and probiotics to make healthy frozen yogurt. Our yogurt is, also, Kosher Approved and carries the Live and Active Cultures Seal of Approval.
In addition to probiotic content, another health benefit of frozen yogurt over ice cream is the amount of lactose found in frozen yogurt appears to be more digestible than lactose in milk commonly used to make ice cream. For people who are lactose intolerant, this is particularly important. Frozen yogurt contains enzymes that assist in breaking down dairy, allowing many people with lactose intolerance to enjoy frozen yogurt with little or no ill effects.
Our conclusion: frozen yogurt does have additional health benefits over ice cream including greater digestibility and the presence of probiotic cultures, as well as lower fat and sugar content. We invite you to come down to The City Yogurt and taste the difference of a healthier frozen treat!
