Yogurt: Great Source of Digestible Protein

Table of Contents
Yogurt is a great source of readily digestible protein. In fact, yogurt supplies double the protein of milk because it’s usually thickened with nonfat milk solids, increasing its protein content. Some people, particularly the elderly, just don’t consume enough protein or calcium. Studies have shown there’s a positive association between protein intake and bone-mineral density of older women and men when they’re supplemented with calcium. The lesson: optimum bone health and prevention of osteoporosis depend not just on calcium supplementation, but on sufficient protein intake as well. Yogurt, with its easily digestible protein and calcium, is the answer.
