Is frozen yogurt the same as regular?

DEAR PEGGY: How does frozen yogurt compare nutritionally to regular? —M.T., Atlanta, Georgia

Whether it's plain or fruit-flavored, regular yogurt offers considerably more calcium than frozen yogurt. The nutritional content of frozen yogurt varies from variety to variety, but in general it reflects that of low-fat ice cream and not traditional yogurt. No federal standards exist for frozen yogurt, so read the labels carefully for nutrient and calorie content.
