    Post made of and made out

    When do we say "made out" and "made of"? Do they make any differences in meaning? For example "Yogurt is made out of milk/ Yogurt is made of milk".

    Thank you

    Re: made of and made out

    Made out of and made of are exactly the same, except that made of usually implies one ingredient at 100% but made out of can mean it is simply the main ingredient. Careful, "made out" also means kissing and necking.
