Yogurt became a very popular and important food product for a huge number of people and it is still important in the food chain until today.

Also, people have produced other types of yogurt based on their flavor, aromas, specific characteristics or years ago people started eating yogurt with the addition of different ingredients and that is something that made people eat yogurt more easily. Yogurt is a dairy product with a very good nutritional value because of the high amounts of probiotics, nutrients such as proteins and some micronutrients such as calcium, magnesium and potassium that each one provide to the human body with a lot of health benefits but, also, because yogurt is a dairy product low in lactose in contrast with milk that makes yogurt a dairy product which can be consumed easily by people with lactose intolerance.

In order to determine the fat and protein content in yogurt there are several methods which are used for the completion of the determination of these two content such as gerber, mojonnier or folch methods for fat, dye-binding, nitrogen determination and formol titration method for protein content.
