Healthy yogurt costs less than Yami, Yoguru & llaollao.

Monday, November 30, 2015

I have been trying to cut down on sugar but one of the things I like to eat is yogurt which apparently has lots of sugar. You know the type with bits of fruit? I particularly like those with bits of mango.

Although I have been told that natural yogurt is sour, I have not tried it before, well, until today.

On my first attempt a few days ago to get natural yogurt in the neighbourhood supermarket, I could not find any. 

All the yogurt I found had more than 10 grams of sugar per 100g. Most had between 12 grams to 15 grams of sugar. 

If you cannot imagine what that means, Vitagen Less Sugar has about 9 grams of sugar per 100g. Jia Jia Liang Teh Less Sugar has about 5.5 grams of sugar per 100g. 

So, most of the yummy yogurt on the shelves in the supermarkets have relatively more sugar.

Anyway, today, I found this:

4 grams of sugar per 100g. Great!

So, what does it taste like?


It is sour! Sour! SOUR!

Anyway, if you want to try this, I got this from NTUC Fairprice Xtra. It was on special offer. 

Two servings for $2.95 instead of $3.95.

Yup. It costs more than the usual Low Fat or Non Fat yogurt with bits of fruit which I like so much.

Well, I guess this is healthy yogurt and it still isn't as pricey as those frozen yogurt from brands like Yami Yogurt, Yoguru or llaollao which probably have tons of sugar.


I used to enjoy Yami Yogurt and Yoguru from time to time. I never did try llaollao because it is so expensive.)

My food bill is growing in size! 

That will be another blog post.

I like a fage greek yogurt.
1 of the highest protein greek yogurt that I ever see so far in the market now.
it texture smooth like the mac ice cream.
I normally mix it with honey, taste good and filling also bcos of high protein level.

Hi sy sy,

I was eating Greek yogurt too for a while when I started on the low carb diet but it is expensive. I have not had it in a while.

I am now on medium carb diet, if there is such a thing. Haha... Put on 2 kgs... -.-"
