Yoghurt is naturally "low fat". This means that food labelled "low fat" contain less than 5% fat, whether that is how the food occurs naturally, or whether fat has been artificially removed. Thick and creamy yoghurts have cream added!

What about Yeo Valley or Rachel's? They are full strength, normal yogurts.

No, longley farm is my favourite, normally is supermarkets with the large pots.

Loads of great real yogurts out there. Sainsbury's own brand Greek yogurt. Yum!

I struggled with this when I was in the UK recently.

I walked up and down the yoghurt aisle for 10 mins trying to find something that wasn't 'reduced fat' or "activia/bio".

I ended up with kids yoghurts.

YANBU - but interesting about the 4% thing!

In France you have the 'normal' yoghurts and then the low-fat ones, but I don't know how much fat is in the normal ones.

SoulJacker Sun 30-Mar-14 14:58:42

in my experience low fat yoghurt = fat removed and sweeteners added not just yoghurt that is naturally low fat. The yoghurt I buy from lidl is around 3% fat but not labelled as a low fat yoghurt. There used to be loads more choice but loads of places have moved to 'low fat' and then have to add stuff like rice starch to thicken.

My rule for yoghurts is 4 ingredients max

I got sick of this so bought a yogurt maker. It's cheap, easy to use (with uht milk) and I strain it overnight for 12 hours so it is as thick as thick can be. It is incredible.

Buy a yoghurt maker. My mum always made her own yoghurt; we used to have a big dish of it in the fridge and eat it with fruit and stuff. It's also cheaper for a bigger family. I love my yoghurt maker.
