Yoghurt – what’s in a tub? The science behind the health benefits of yoghurt


Yoghurt is often labelled as a ‘superfood’ for its nutrient density, gut health benefits and high protein content which can positively impact satiety and muscle mass. Yet despite these benefits, concerns have been raised about the sugar content in flavoured yoghurt. With growing recognition of the importance of dietary guidance being based on the evaluation of the whole food matrix rather than individual nutrients, this webinar will take a deep dive into the emerging research around the health benefits of all types of yoghurt, to help you increase your knowledge around the unique health benefits of this ancient fermented dairy food.

Teri Lichtenstein, Accredited practising Dietitian, will share with us the latest evidence around this nutrient-rich food and all the benefits that yoghurt has to offer.
