The calorie difference and protein differences between the two of them will hardly make any difference to the daily intake.

Nestle slim dahi can be consumed by a person with a higher BMI and those calorie conscious individuals. . The cost for one tin of 400g of Nestle Slim Dahi is 50 INR where as the regular curd is 20 INR for 500g (½ a liter). Slim dahi can be used like regular curd for curd preparations such as brownies, dahi vada, dhokla etc.
