Is today's store bought Yogurt really good for me?

mcel215 | Mar 24, 2013 10:29 AM

Okay, I know it's not bad for me, but is there really any health benefits to commercial yogurt?

This isn't a post to argue, I am really confused.

I've read and read about the pros and cons, but ultimately I'm coming away with the feeling that's it's so processed nowadays, there isn't much of the good bacteria in it to help anyone's digestive system. I mean, why am I eating it then?

I will add that I have been growing my own kefir and using that. I use raw milk from a reputable farm here in Ma., so I don't think I even need to eat yogurt really.

Recently I bought Greek yogurt unflavored and have been adding fresh fruit, but it's not knocking my socks off in the flavor department. So if I am not gaining anything good for me, I'll change my afternoon snack.

So, any of you science/health major people have any advice for me? I'm tired ot searching google with all kinds of jargon or fancy advertising that gets me nowhere.
