I’m really missing yoghurt but upon reading your guide (taking into account that there is a lactose component in the sugar total on labels) it appears almost all yoghurt is ok if it is less than 3% - ie after deducting the lactose component
Am I missing something
Hi - no you're not missing anything. Full fat yoghurt is fine. Same as milk - there's about 3-4% lactose present naturally which is no problem at all.
For reassurance, read the ingredients list which should not include "sugar" of any kind.
Sweet Poison Quit Plan pp 75-78 shows that the first 4.7% of the sugar in natural yoghurts is lactose based which metabolises as glucose (the good guy). So it's OK to eat yoghurts with up to 7% "sugars" when keeping to the 2% rule. Just beware of "low fat" yoghurts because when they remove the fat they also remove the flavour. Then it's replaced with salt and sugar - BAD!
