Hi Everyone! I’m back with another Grocery Guide video, and this time I’m giving you three tips to help you choose a healthier yogurt. One of the most interesting points here is that full-fat yogurt can be a healthy choice. After years of recommendations to choose the fat-free versions of everything, more recent research shows that saturated fat intake is not related to an increase in heart disease and that eating fat may help you maintain a healthier weight. What is strongly related to developing heart disease is the consumption of refined sugars and carbohydrates, so watch those sugars in your yogurt.
How many grams of sugar come from lactose?
Although brands differ, here’s a general rule of thumb:
Regular yogurt – 12g lactose per 8 oz serving
Greek yogurt – 8g of lactose per 8oz serving
Skyr – 6g or less of lactose
