According to a U.K. study, certain kinds of yogurt tend to be an “unrecognized” source of dietary sugar, especially for young children who consume a lot of this dairy product.
Earlier studies have confirmed that yogurt and other fermented dairy products are good for your digestion and overall well-being. Yogurt also contains “good” bacteria, and it is rich in calcium, iodine, protein, and vitamin B.
Both U.K. and U.S. dietary guidelines recommend low-fat and low-sugar dairy products. For the study, the authors set out to determine how far yogurt products, especially those that are marketed to children, meet these guidelines.
