NATURAL YOGURT RECIPE
Yogurts purchased in supermarkets are already sweetened, which encourages an excessive consumption of sugar. Flavored yogurts are produced with fruits processed and transformed into pulp, which takes away the taste, aroma and color. They also contain flavorings and colorings. There's nothing like a fruit just fallen from the tree.
The lactic ferment is a group of beneficial bacteria that feed on lactose, the natural sugar found in milk, and produce fermentation, which gives them energy. Fermentation is what transforms milk into yogurt, which is an extremely beneficial food.
