Best frozen yogurt in Orlando & by Disney
Where does frozen ice cream come from?
As the name suggests, frozen yogurt is a frozen dessert made out of yogurt, sometimes mixing with nondairy products and is another option to icecream like sorbet. It is high in tart and low in fat. It is one of the oldest foodstuffs known to mankind. It traces its history to early civilization in Turkey when fermented milk was stored in sheepskin to conserve it. It passed through a lot of evolution across different civilizations. The modern age yogurt was first introduced in the 1970s by HP Hood in New England. Then, it was popular by the name of Frogurt. It later caught popularity with the gym-going fitness crazy guys, who found yogurt as a good alternative to ice cream because of its low-fat content.
It’s a kind of staple diet for people across Europe and is rapidly becoming popular in parts of Asian countries as well as becoming an integral part of the breakfast cereal. World over, frozen yogurt producing companies have launched this dessert in all the imaginable flavors and attractive packaging.
In America, the per capita consumption of yogurt is still much lesser as compared to European countries like France and Germany, but in the last 3 to 4 decades, the consumption has increased exponentially and is still growing which shows the popularity frozen yogurt enjoys because of health benefits attached to it.
