It’s Not Just Cows Milk: The dairy in the treat you’re eating might not come from a cow. Froyo is often made from the milk of sheep, goats and water buffalo — even camels and yaks in parts of Asia.
Yogurt is created by adding good bacteria to milk. This is why yogurt has unique qualities. The healthy cultures ferment and convert the lactose into lactic acid, creating the tart flavor of yogurt that we know and love. This is also why some who suffer from lactose intolerance are able to tolerate frozen yogurt, even if they can not digest milk very well.
Frozen yogurt is fairly new to the world of sweets. It was introduced in the 1970s under the name Frogurt, and in the 1980s sales skyrocketed. The word yogurt, however, dates back to 1625. It is a mispronunciation of the Turkish word yogurt, in which the “g” is pronounced with a soft sound. The root yog means to “to condense.”
