Health Post – Know What’s in Yoghurt

If there were real strawberries in all strawberry yoghurt strawberry patches would take up a huge chunk of arable land on our planet…not to say that are not yoghurts that have real strawberries, but you should understand what exactly is in the yoghurt you purchase before you buy it…

Some yoghurts have got chemicals in them that are also used as cleaning products and to dissolve paints. Manufacturers use them because they taste like fruit and also as a preservative. The chemical is called butyl acetate and food scientists say that if you consume it regularly it will decrease your life expectancy by between 10 and 15 years as it effects the fauna in your gut, interfering with digestion and therefore plays havoc with your immune system. If you suspect that the yoghurt you are purchasing has that chemical in it and can’t read the label, if any yoghurt you buy has got a shelf life of more than two weeks don’t buy it! 

If you suspect the yoghurt you purchase that seems to have real fruit in it because you can see pieces in it, these pieces could be either soy or vegetables that are made to look like the fruit? Best to stick to berry yoghurt that cannot be copied. Read the label and if it says “with the taste of” the flavor is artificial. Also understand that ‘real fruit’ yoghurt contains fruit in it that has been irradiated because that is part of the manufacturing technical process…

So if you still desire to eat yoghurt, it is best to buy natural yoghurt and add your own fruit or even better still make your own yoghurt. Of course a huge percentage of the world’s population (66%) have got a certain level of allergies to milk products and be aware that certain fruits should not be mixed with yoghurt. These incompatible fruits include apples, pears, persimmons, grapefruit and grapes. – they can give you a low level gut ache at best. (This is a signal that your body is sending out indicating the food your are consuming is not good for you). Fruits that can be mixed with yoghurt are pineapples, bananas, strawberries Kiwi fruits, blueberries and red berries.

If you don’t have an allergy to milk or milk products eating yoghurt occasionally won’t harm you, but it shouldn’t be consumed everyday. Always read the labels of any humanly interfered with products you purchase and question where the fresh products you buy come from as to their GMO content etc…
