    Bought my favourite yoghurt the other day ( yoplait forme french vanilla) after a while I recognised that it tasted really good and better than before. I had a look on the ingredients and discovered they have addded fructose to the ingredience. They still trick you by saying less than 1% added sugar. Before they only added artifical sweetener now it has fructose, will need to look at another brand.

    Sad about this because it was a great low fat youghurt. Nice and low in sugar for diabetics

    Hi. I have seen Nestle Diet have clarified their listings- there Passionfruit, for eg, lists the 'sugars per serve/150g  as 4.1g: fructose-.1g, sucrose .1 g, lactose 3.6g.' They seem to have become aware of our requirements, so its great the sugar mix is clarified- these are yummy yoghurts, with acceptible levels of sugar, it seems. Their Lemon- meringue flavour is to die for!

    I used to love that flavour! I also used to like the Vaallia French Vanilla yoghurt. But you know what, nothing beats natural greek full fat yoghurt mixed with dextrose.  You can even mix a splash of vanilla essence with plain natural yoghurt and some dextrose and even some berries.  Make you own flavours.
