Yogurt: Does the Liquid You Drain Off Have Nutritional Value?

Recommended Posts

I'm obviously not using the right keywords to find this info on the internet.

 

When you drain the liquid off yogurt (e.g., if you're making yogurt cheese), are you losing vitamins, good bacteria, whatever? Most of the time I stir the liquid back in, but sometimes you want thicker yogurt -- should you save the liquid and use it in something like a smoothie, or is it devoid of value and okay to dump it down the sink?

The liquid of which you speak is called the 'whey.' It is very high in protein and is very good for you. I don't know the nutritional info off the top of my head, but I'd say don't throw it out!

Thanks, Linda! With the "whey" keyword, I was able to see on the Dannon site that it contains potassium and calcium as well as protein.
