My husband feels that yogurt is full of protein. I differ from his opinion! I know that yogurt has natural acidphilodophilis in it; and it helps get rid of bacteria. I've never heard of it having protein. What are the facts?

Yogurt is strictly defined as a milk product produced by the action of two bacteria - Streptoccus thermophilus and Lactobacillus bulgaricus. In addition, yogurt now may contain bifidus bacteria and sometimes Lactobacillus casei. The first two are needed to convert milk to yogurt and the later two are often added because of their health promoting properties. As to protein, well yes, milk does contain protein and yogurt is made from milk.
