Supermarket yoghurts contain more sugar than Coke, study warns

Yoghurt

The evidence suggests that yoghurt and other fermented dairy products aid digestive and overall health.

Researchers analyzed more than 900 yogurt brands found in United Kingdom supermarkets and found that only 9% can be classed as low in sugar - containing less than five grams of sugar per 100 grams - while just 2% of children's yogurts are low in sugar.

The results reveal that the mid-value for nearly all categories was far higher than the "low-sugar" benchmark, with a median of 16.4g of sugar per 100g for desserts and 10.8g/100g for children's products.

The yogurt category was the only one to surpass the 5% sugar-reduction target in the first year, and Tedstone expressed hope there would be further reductions posted in next year's report. The authors of the study calculated the median amount of sugar per 100 grams for each category of yogurt that they studied, and compared sugar averages.

Yogurts found in a USA supermarket have similar amounts of sugar to those found in United Kingdom stores.

This is especially true of the yogurts in the organic category, which are generally regarded as a healthier alternative.

As some states rightfully start to look at reducing sugar consumption from soft drinks, scientists underline another potential source of unneeded sugar: yogurt.

The NHS recommends that children aged four to six should have no more than 19g of sugar per day, while those aged seven to 10 should consume less than 24g daily. In fact, studies have shown yogurt consumers have a lower risk of obesity.

Yoghurts do contain naturally occurring sugar, called lactose, but United Kingdom labeling laws do not require manufacturers to declare added sugars, the authors said.

It's important to note that food labels in the United Kingdom report nutritional contents differently than in the U.S. Every component is based on a standard 100 gram portion rather than the classic U.S.

This information is significant when considering that obesity, even among children, is on the rise around the world. Chobani filed the lawsuit Monday, April 24, 2017.

Yogurt is often regarded as a healthy snack but a new study finds that most yogurts on store shelves are chock-full of sugar.

Moore suspects the amount of sugar in yogurt in the U.S.is about the same as in the United Kingdom. Moore advocates for more transparent food labeling, and changes from the yogurt industry itself.

But they warn that what many consider a healthy food could also play a part in various health problems due to its sugar content. Yogurt is marketed as a healthy food, but a study published this week in the British Medical Journal is the latest reminder that not all yogurt is created equal.

Greek and natural yogurts also contained higher levels of protein and the sugar is more likely to be naturally occurring than added. One Yoplait yogurt, marketed with Disney's popular Frozen characters on it, contains 13 grams of sugar in a 113 gram serving.
