Did you know…?
While the probiotics in Vaalia Yoghurt don’t survive baking in the oven, adding Vaalia Yoghurt to this muffin base gives them a great light texture and keeps the total fat content below 10g per serve. Using Vaalia yoghurt as a low fat cooking ingredient also provides all the other great nutritional benefits of dairy foods such as protein, B group vitamins and calcium.
Because probiotics are living organisms, they cannot survive the cooking process, but a side serve of Vaalia straight from the fridge will do the trick!
