Ayran or laban is a cold beverage of yogurt mixed with cold water and sometimes salt; it is popular in many Central Asian, Middle Eastern and South-eastern European countries.Similar and possibly related beverages include the South Asian lassi and the Iranian doogh.
Turkey is the biggest producer of ayran in the world, and has researched the subject extensively. In Turkey, ayran is often regarded as a separate category from other soft drinks. International fast-food companies in Turkey, such as McDonald’s and Burger King, include ayran on their menu.
In rural areas of Turkey, ayran is offered as a “standard” drink to guests.
Ayran is usually served chilled, and is a common accompaniment to any form of grilled meat, pastry, or rice.
