Yogurt in Clay: It’s better in 3 ways – Naturally Thicker, Healthier and more Delicious!
Adam comes home after a long day and is eagerly looking forward to having a few scoops of “healthy” yogurt. He takes out the metal yogurt pot and finds his yogurt watery and tasting a bit sour so he adds sugar but still, it’s not the kind of yogurt he was hoping to cherish. Also, the toxins leaching out from the metal pot raise questions over the health value of such a yogurt. His yogurt would have been healthy if not for the metals leaching in from the pot. What if there is a natural way to make yogurt thick, creamy, healthy and delicious?
The walls of a pure clay pot are semi-porous or breathable, they let excess water evaporate and make yogurt thicker and creamier NATURALLY. The colonies of probiotics keep getting stronger and thicker in a natural breathable pot which gives yogurt a creamy and silky texture. This means you don’t have to strain your yogurt and it won’t turn out watery or runny. Metal or ceramic pots do not have this feature so yogurt made in these is never thick.
Unlike metals and ceramics, pure clay is 100% non-toxic. When you heat milk in a metal pot, it is prone to leach toxins and contaminate the yogurt. Pure clay, being a naturally inert material, doesn’t leach and keeps your yogurt uncontaminated and healthy.
An unhealthy pot leaches toxin and also modifies the natural taste of yogurt. The yogurt often turns out watery and sour which calls for artificial sweeteners, flavors and thickeners. But when made in pure clay, yogurt doesn’t lose its natural taste and turns out creamy and delicious without any additives.
Now that you know the benefits of making yogurt in a clay pot, it is important to understand that not every clay pot makes healthy yogurt. While the market is full of clay pots made from low quality clay mixed with toxic additives (to ease the manufacturing process) and even glazed with chemicals, one company in the US, known as Miriams Earthen Cookware (MEC) is making clay pots from unglazed primary clay or pure clay without using any chemicals. They make their pots following all the right steps so they have all the healthy features needed to make your yogurt thick, creamy, healthy and delicious. MEC strictly refrains from using chemicals, additives, glazes or enamels in their pots to make them the best yogurt makers.
