The maltodextrin in this product is very dangerous

I purchased this product & the dairy kefer version of this product in a health food store, trusting that it would provide me with a good, healthy alternative to buying store bought yogurt. Much better to make your own, yes?

Nope. When I got home & began to read the ingredients again, I noticed something I overlooked - maltodextrin. It's in BOTH the yogurt making & kefer making products which Yogourmet sells.

Maltodextrin is a highly processed carbohydrate commonly used in processed foods to improve texture, consistency & shelf life. It can have many negative effects on our health.

Research has linked maltodextrin to potential health risks. Some facts regarding the dangers related to consuming maltodextrin:

BLOOD SUGAR SPIKES - Maltodextrin has a high glycemic index, which means it causes rapid increase in blood sugar levels. This is particularly dangerous for individuals with diabetes or insulin resistance.

WEIGHT GAIN - Consuming maltodextrin can lead to weight gain, which is a significant risk factor for developing type 2 diabetes.

INSULIN RESISTANCE - Consumption of maltodextrin can contribute to insulin resistance, making it more challenging for the body to regulate blood sugar levels.

GUT HEALTH - Maltodextrin affectS the balance of gut bacteria, which can have negative consequences for overall health.

ALLERGIC REACTIONS - Some people are allergic to maltodextrin; this can cause various allergic reactions, including skin problems such as rashes, intestinal cramping & bloating, anaphylaxis, hives, swelling

INTESTINAL INFLAMMATION - Maltodextrin has been shown to alter gut bacteria, leading to intestinal inflammation & contributing to conditions like Crohn’s disease & ulcerative colitis.

GLUTEN INTOLERANCE - Maltodextrin is made from starch sources such as corn, rice, potato, wheat & tapioca. It can contain traces of gluten, making it a concern for individuals with gluten intolerance or celiac disease.

LINK TO CHRONIC DISEASES - Consuming maltodextrin is linked to increased risk of chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease & certain types of cancer.

I will absolutely avoid ALL products made by the Yogourmet company / brand in the future. In addition, health food stores & company's selling products such as these need to do better. They need to research products they are stocking in their stores. People & stores selling so-called 'healthy' products are going the way of supermarket garbage food & those doing ads for fast food companies. Consumers also need to do much better in educating themselves & understand that there are now a LOT of dangerous ingredients in so called 'health foods' such as yogurt, kefer & products used to make both. Educate companies such as Yogourmet as well, because they obviously are not doing their due diligence.

This is absolutely amazing yogurt starter!

It's my favorite yogurt starter, I use it to make my own yogurt every week, always comes out perfect! I'm so happy that they can ship it to the US, fast shipping and great customer service, definitely will keep buying! Thank you!
