A lot of people are tempted to drain the water found on a brand new container of yogurt or sour cream. I see it all the time…”ewww” the uninformed exclaim!
This liquid is actually whey. Although most of the nutrients are found in the solids, this water contains protein, calcium, and potassium.
If you don’t want to stir, try shaking the container before opening! Then use the yogurt in a parfait, or to top on your waffles!
