oday I’m making super delicious and light strawberry and yogurt mousse cake! Now, everything about strawberries you can learn from my post about . So, in this post you will learn something about yogurt!
A Few Words about Yogurt
Yogurt is made from milk cultured with live bacteria.These are “good bacteria” or yogurt cultures that produce lactic acid which coagulates the milk proteins, making yogurt thick and slightly sour in flavor.Many historians believe that the yogurt was made by accident, when milk was stored in containers made of animal stomachs. The natural enzymes from these animal parts would curdle the milk, resulting in what we now know as yogurt. Turkish shepherds had been turning milk into yogurt as early at 3000 BC.
Yogurt is highly nutritious and is an excellent source of protein, calcium and potassium. It provides numerous vitamins and minerals and is relatively low in calories. When French king, François I allegedly suffered from upset tummy, no other than Turkish sultan, Suleiman the Magnificent himself, sent over one of his own doctors with a miraculous cure: yogurt. It’s good to have friends in high places, right?
Yogurt was brought to the US in the early 1900s and steadily increased in popularity as a health food item over the next several decades. Today, Americans consume more than 300,000 tons of yogurt each year. So, all in all, yogurt is an extremely versatile thing – you can drink it as is, you can make a salad dressing, or – as we are going to do today, you can make a yogurt mousse. Isn’t that awesome?!
