Welcome to The Scoop, BTIC Yogurt's blog.
At BTIC, we believe evidence-based journalism especially when it comes to health and nutrition. So as much as we love our own products, we never claim health benefits that are not supported by evidence and scientific research. That's why we like the online magazine, Healthline. It's an interesting resource for those who want to read up on the science around health and nutrition without the marketing spin.
Recently, Healthline came out with an article analyzing whether consuming yogurt helps people lose weight.
The article discusses claims associated with yogurt and whether they stand scientific scrutiny.
This is Healthline's bottom line:
"Yogurt may be most beneficial for weight loss when used to replace high calorie, low protein foods rather than when simply added to your diet. As it may help you feel full for longer, this dairy product could naturally lead you to eat fewer calories throughout the day.
Furthermore, regular yogurt intake is tied to a reduced risk of excess weight and obesity.
Overall, eating yogurt as part of a balanced diet can be a nutritious and satisfying way to support weight loss."
