    I have just found this yogurt and wanted to put it out there if anyone can confirm if it is okay.

    Its black swan naturally sweet greek style breakfast yogurt. It has no sugar added and is lactose free.

    the ingredients are:

    milk milk solids, fiber (inulin) thickener 1442 halal gelatine, live probiotic cultures, soy solids lactase vitamin D.

    under sugars it says

    5gms per 100gms

    lactose 0gms

    galactose 2.3gms.

    Any help would be great. Also my two kids love yogurt. i was buying the nemo ones which are full of sugar. Any ideas how to either get them off these or a good alternative.

    I won't comment on the ingredients (cos some I won't eat and a good yoghurt doesn't need things such as gelatine).

    Do you have Aldi near you? Their greek yoghurt is very nice. There's an organic greek yoghurt made by Barambah (I think I've spelt it properly), our IGA stocks it. So could any organic store or perhaps even a health food store. It can take a bit of adjustment to the taste, but some rice malt syrup or some fruit (I have mine with berries for breakfast) may help with that.

    I *think* the Margaret River yoghurt is ok (greek or natural set). It's been a while since I read the ingredients so may be wrong on this one. Jalna also makes one that should be ok (again, been a while since I read the label.)

    Sorry, it has inulin, even though it is listed as fiber, it acts the same way as fructose.  David mentions it in his book.

    Agreed, inulin is very bad but the Aldi greek full fat yoghurt is to die for! I mix it with dextrose and have berries with it!

    thats for your views. I am reading David's book again so I am sure I will come across the info on inulin. I didn't really like the taste anyway so happy to give it away. I love greek yoghurt so will try with dextrose and berries and see how we go. My kids also love the greek yoghurt so I might put some dextrose in it and see how it goes with them.

    thanks again
