Fermented dairy has long been part of health fads, with the probiotic bacteria they contain marketed as active and happy cultures that valiantly wage war against digestive issues. In truth, there’s a lot of misinformation online about probiotics, their benefits, and their potential side effects. That doesn’t take away from the fact that many people enjoy eating yogurt as a source of dairy (or non-dairy) protein, calcium, and general yumminess. When you make your own at home, you can save money, control how much sugar you add, and reduce your consumption of single-use plastics. These yogurt makers are an excellent addition to any kitchen.
