Jalna Yoghurt: unique dairy benefits
Yoghurt is a nutritious dairy choice with unique benefits. Why? Many people simply don't drink milk, other than in tea or coffee, or perhaps eat only a little cheese, so meeting recommended daily calcium needs, and benefiting from vitamins and minerals in dairy foods can be hard for them.
But yoghurt is a versatile dairy food that can be enjoyed on its own, with a range of healthy foods like fruit or whole grain cereals, as well as in recipes for everything from dips, drinks, meals, desserts and snacks, providing more opportunities to increase calcium and protein consumption than other dairy.
The Jalna Yoghurt range has options from fat free, low fat, whole milk, a2 to BioDynamic Organic to meet specific dietary needs. And even the whole milk varieties offer lower fat/kJ options as nutritious, tasty alternatives to cream, coconut cream or cheese.
Plus Jalna Yoghurt provides probiotic benefits not available in most dairy foods. Each 100g serve of Jalna Yoghurt contains more than 300,000,000 La-5® Lactobacillus acidophilus, BB-12® bifidobacterium and L.casei 431® probiotics.
