Though not a miracle food, yogurt is certainly a nutritional gold mine. Recently we explored some of the truths and misconceptions about yogurt, which is essentially milk fermented with bacteria. Today we'll tell you how to dress it up. If you're beginning with commercial yogurt, check the label (all of them are dated for freshness) and select the latest date possible.

Trish Wiener believes Dannon misled her, and she wants to milk it for all it's worth.
