What is frozen yogurt?
"Frozen yogurt (also frozen yoghurt, froyo, frogurt,) is a frozen dessert made from or containing yogurt or other dairy products. Frozen yogurt is similar to ice cream, but lower in fat (due to the use of milk instead of cream) and slightly more tart."
"Although frozen yogurt has been made since at least the 1970s, it did not become especially popular until the 1980s. When frozen yogurt was introduced in the 1970s as a healthier alternative to ice cream, it was very different from today's frozen yogurts. Consumers complained about the tart taste and consistency, which was much more similar to ordinary yogurt. Manufacturers then went to work on finding a more viable recipe that consumers would enjoy. Frozen yogurt soon made a comeback in the 1980s, which addressed the multiple issues of frozen yogurt of the 1970s. More recently, frozen yogurt made by Red Mango, Pinkberry, and Cielo has been tarter. Today, both frozen yogurt and sorbet are served as healthier alternatives to ice cream."
"Typically, frozen yogurt consists of fat yogurt, sweetener, gelatin, corn syrup, coloring and flavoring. It is typically made in an ice cream machine and available in a variety of flavors; the most common are typically vanilla and chocolate. Frozen yogurt freezes and melts much slower than ice cream, since yogurt has a much higher enthalpy of fusion than unfermented milk and cream. More recently, probiotic frozen yogurt has seen increased popularity, as many consumers may view yogurt of this variety as being healthier"
