BABIO, Nancy; MENA-SANCHEZ, Guillermo  and  SALAS-SALVADO, Jordi. Beyond the nutritional value of yogurt: a diet quality indicator?. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2017, vol.34, suppl.4, pp.26-30. ISSN 1699-5198.

Yogurt is a nutrient-dense probiotic food with unique properties. It has been associated with healthy dietary patterns and postulated as a marker of diet quality. In this report we describe the nutritional composition of yogurt as a good source of several micronutrients, which may help to improve diet quality and maintain metabolic well-being as part of a healthy dietary pattern. The results of this report indicate that yogurt consumers have overall higher diet quality. Increasing yogurt consumption may help to improve the intake of some shortfall vitamins and minerals, as part of a well energy-balanced diet. Further studies such as long-term intervention one, would be useful to explore the effect of yogurt consumption, on nutritional status and health.

Keywords : Yogurt; Diet quality; Metabolic profile.
