Why You Should Make Your Own Yogurt When it comes to food, do it yourself projects can not only be fun but they can be much more healthy than the commercial alternative as well. Some of the products that you can easily make at home on your own include candles, soap, clothes, and other household items. But, one of the best ways I have found to get my “Do it yourself” on has been in the kitchen. Yogurt is a great example of what I mean. Yogurt has been around a very long time and is one of the best and healthiest foods that you can eat. There are a lot of great things that yogurt can do for you that many people do not consider. It can boost your immune system. It helps to maintain a good bacterial flora in your stomach and digestive system. It even has a lot of vitamins and nutrients that most adults take supplements for. The bad part is that most commercial yogurt is loaded with additives and a lot of sugar. One of the major factors to this is the added sugar. There are also many different kinds of artificial flavors and preservatives in commercial yogurts that detract from its’ goodness. This is why making your own yogurt can be so beneficial to your health and wallet.

Incredible Lessons I’ve Learned About Products
To get started you are going to need milk because as most of us know yogurt is a milk product. What many people do not know is that you can use many different kinds of milk to make yogurt. You can use anything from soy milk that contains honey or some other form of fructose to powdered milk and everything in between. You should stay away from sour milk, sour yogurt, or flavored yogurt for your starters. To have a lot of control over what goes into your yogurt when you are starting out you should look into yogurt starter packets. This is the best way I have found to get the right bacteria into your home made yogurt. In order to break down food properly your stomach and digestive systems need to have the right probiotics, or bacteria. Although you should not use flavored yogurt while you are making it yourself this does not mean that you should not add flavor to your homemade yogurt yourself. Try adding fresh fruit, vanilla, or honey to your yogurt. The best part of making anything yourself is you get to make it however you want. Making your own yogurt can really help you get a healthy gut.
