What is the difference between YoPRO and regular yoghurt?
YoPRO uses a traditional strained process to make its yoghurt. In fact we strain over three cups of fresh milk to create one cup of YoPRO. This process strains out some of the excess liquid leaving you with naturally thick and creamy yoghurt that contains over three times the natural protein of regular yoghurts.
Compared to regular yoghurts YoPRO also contains high protein, and no added sugar and no artificial sweeteners, colours or flavours.
