5 Myths About Frozen Yogurt - as part of the news and politics series by GeoBeats. Here are 5 myths about frozen yogurt: Number 5 - If ice-cream is high in fat and yogurt is low in fat then it must be better to eat frozen yogurt. Counter-intuitively, some experts say higher fat content in ice cream actually fills you up more quickly and you end up eating less, potentially taking in fewer calories than you would when having frozen yogurt. Number 4 - Frozen yogurt is full of healthy probiotics that maintain digestive health and boosts immune system. However, there is still some debate on whether the healthy bacteria lives in your yogurt or not. Some research suggests that the freezing process prevents the probiotics from surviving and getting to a point where they can actually benefit you. Number 3 - Toppings will not make a big difference in your calorie count. Fresh fruit is fine but if your yogurt is topped with brownie bites, chocolate, candies, and other sugary stuff, you'll be taking in loads of fat and calories. Number 2 - Since frozen yogurt is healthier, it can be a substitute for regular plain yogurt. However, plain yogurt has more nutritional value than frozen yogurt. Moreover, frozen yogurt is a lot higher in sugar content than a regular plain yogurt. Number 1 - It's a myth that frozen yogurt is a recent phenomenon. Although it has gained mass popularity recently, it was originally introduced in the US in the 1970s.
