Manila gets hooked on the fro-yo craze*

BLAME it on the health-consciousness wave.

Many Metro Manilans are now ditching sinfully sweet, caloric-laden desserts, and reaching out for the frozen yogurt.

Yogurt, which has been around for over 4,000 years and consumed in great quantities in certain cultures, has always been praised by nutritionists for its health benefits. While its origins sound a little unpalatable—it’s made by fermenting milk with bacteria, hence the sour taste—yogurt is said to be rich in protein, calcium, riboflavin, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12. It is also supposedly fat-free and has very low sugar content. (Click BusinessMirror for the rest.)
