Should I eat this: Yogurt edition

Asking for a friend: My friend is currently standing next to me eating Siggi's Icelandic Style Strawberry Yogurt, which might have expired two months ago. Or a month ago, if we optimistically assume the European date format (03/04/2016). Will he die or will he be okay? How long does yogurt last past expiry date? Does it matter that it supposedly have no preservatives? Does anyone know if the dates printed on the Siggi's yogurt cups are American or European format?

Health effects of kefir and/or yogurt?

I'm interested in the short-term and/or long-term effects of eating fermented dairy products. I would be especially interested to know how kefir (or yogurt) affects the GI tract, the microflora balance, metabolism, weight, etc. [more inside]

Why does yogurt make my front teeth feel loose?

I know this seems like a really silly question, and I would never even think that yogurt could possibly damage my teeth, but I actually have two front teeth that are already somewhat loose and that I never use to bite into anything hard. And eating yogurt just seems to affect my front teeth, which feel all wiggly, but once I rinse my mouth out with water, they're fine again. I'd just like to understand what is happening here.

So, How About That Yogurt Maker?

I noticed that we've been going through kind of insane amounts of the Trader Joe's Greek-style yogurt recently. Since I'm already spending a small fortune on the stuff, I'd like to just try making my own. Any tips, recommendations, absolutely-best-yogurt-making devices EVAR? [more inside]

Not too sweet yogurt

While I enjoy Chobanis and other greek-style yogurt cups, they're little sugar bombs. And plain is a little too plain for me. Recommend me a brand of yogurt that is less sweet (lower sugar but not artificially sweetened) and comes in single-serve cups. [more inside]

Replicating Fage greek yogurt at home - where can I get this starter?

What is the healthiest frozen yogurt brand you can recommend?

Preferably plain, preferably low fat, and preferably from Kroger. The yogurt is for an elderly family member, and the plan is to add fresh fruit. For bonus points, any suggestions for a natural fiber supplement to mix in would also be beneficial. I've heard flax seed is used for that purpose, though other/better suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

What are your best recipes with yogurt?

I bought 2 pounds (the smallest size I could find) of plain whole milk yogurt, not realizing that there was an almost-empty container in the fridge. So now I have all this yogurt with a best-by date of August 5. What are your favorite ways to use it? I'm especially interested in vegetarian main dishes (bonus points for using CSA-type veggies), but would also like ways to pair it with chicken or fish.

How do I get yogurt marinades to stop sticking to the aluminum foil?

How can I maximize the health benefits of yogurt?

If roughly one hour lapses between the time I remove a container of yogurt from the refrigerated case at Whole Foods, to when I place it inside my fridge at home, does that temperature change kill off most of the live & active bacterial cultures? If I leave the container in the fridge unopened for a few more days, will they repopulate the container? Also, if acidophilus are "acid loving" bacteria, should I be eating yogurt after a big meal, instead of on an empty stomach?

Yogurt and Low Carb Diets

I just read a webpage indicating that due to the way the govt makes food mfgrs calulate ingredients in their products, the amount of carbs in yogurt is overstated. Much of the lactose in the milk used to make it is converted to lactic acid, but remains in the carb count in the nutrition facts on the carton. I understood the fermentation process before, but was not aware of the label being misleading. Could anyone point me to research or a definitive source showing that this is true? Thanks.

cake for lazy people

When I lived in France, I used to make a super easy, delicious cake for the kids that involved using a container of yogurt and then measuring all the other ingredients using that container of yogurt. I've totally forgotten how to make this now. Anyone know what I'm talking about or where to find a recipe?

I guess TCBY were ahead of their time...

Everywhere I look there's a brand new little self-serve yogurt place with a different but strangely similar name. Pinkberry. Red Mango. Yogurt Circle. Yocup. Sogreen. Freshberry. Yogen Fruz. Tuttimelon. Nubi. One can expect a certain degree of copycatism with food trends, but it seems that there must have been some sort of catalyst for so many of these places to spring up so quickly with such similar products and business models at the same time. What brought this on?

Calling All German-Speaking Mefites/Cooks!

I recently purchased several boxes of magazines at a garage sale, including copies of a German magazine called "Lisa." It's a typical "woman's magazine" (i.e. fashion, celebrity news, recipes, human interest stories). It's been fun to peruse through it since we don't get much exposure to "foreign" stuff here in the sticks, and one of the recipes caught my eye: Luftige Joghurt-Aprikosen-Torte. [more inside]
