Frozen yogurt, for all its health claims, is a popular favorite among children and adults alike.
This sweet treat is a dairy product fermented with bacterial culture, and yes, it is healthy. In fact, the University of Michigan integrative Medicine Program recommends it as part of everyone’s diet. Frozen yogurt is an excellent replacement for ice cream, and within the established companies such as Fresh & Healthy, there’s room for health food franchise opportunities offered to qualified entrepreneurs.
Frozen yogurt has been popular since the 1980s and the 1990s that manufacturers have allowed a new feature of frozen yogurt that is made from ice cream makers. This means, the business of running a frozen yogurt store can be enjoyed even by those who own ice cream makers.
More health-conscious consumers are preferring frozen yogurt more than ice cream, with yogurt and enriched milk as substitutes for cream. With the energy-boosting protein and bone-building calcium in yogurt, it would seem from any angle how getting into this fat-busting business could be nothing but a win-win business venture.
According to an article in fitday.com, “while frozen yogurt is still not as healthy as normal yogurt, other benefits that it includes are more minerals and nutrients than regular, traditional ice cream.” Moreover, frozen yogurt, like ice cream, comes in different flavors and toppings, which you can combine according to personal preference. It can be enjoyed in a cone or cup, cut in various sizes and shapes.
Healthy yogurt contains enzymes that help break down dairy, which makes it the drink of choice among the lactose-intolerant who can now enjoy the sweet frozen treat without experiencing any ill effects at all. Also, the lactic acid bacteria in the yogurt helps enhance the digestive function and reduce allergic reactions. It also helps decrease inflammatory bowel disease symptoms.
The “live culture” in your yogurt means it has probiotics which are beneficial to your digestive tract, helping keep away harmful microorganisms that can cause intestinal infections. So yes, frozen yogurt may be the right healthy food franchise, and some websites like World’s Healthiest Foods even recommend yogurt because it contains nutrients, minerals, and vitamins for the body’s overall health.
