Yogurt and yogurt drink combined accounted for 20% and 13% of Iran’s overall dairy exports during the period respectively.

Also known as Ayran, tan and doogh, the yogurt drink is a savory yogurt-based beverage.

It is made by mixing yogurt and chilled or iced water and is sometimes carbonated and seasoned with salt and herbs.
