Is There Such A Thing as Sugar-Free Yogurt?

Even Stonyfield Lowfat Plain has 15grams of sugar in it. Trying to find ways of cutting out sugars, and it seems to be there wherever I turn. In a lot of unexpected places.

the lactose in the milk, whether or not it's called fat free or whole, will show up as a sugar on the nutrition label. fage yogurt brand has the least amount i've found, coming in at 6grams per serving. that's the non-fat type. and it's thick and creamy-absolutely delish!

Cascade mountain is sugar free. It is sweetened by fruit juices but not from concentrate. Certainly not as sweet as all the yogurts out there but they are good.

Milk just naturally has sugar in in, so anything made with milk, unless it's specially processed to remove the sugars, will have sugar in it. Human milk has sugar in it too! Babies need these sugars to develop and grow, and that's what milks are designed for. There are some great low carb/sugar soymilks out there you can try, I think Pearl is quite good.

i am not familiar with the brand of cascade mountain, but if there is fruit juice used to sweeten it, there will be sugar-it's just not the refined sugar usually found, it is a naturally occurring sugar in the fruit. but this does not make it "sugar-free".

I like Dannon Light'n Fit Carb and Sugar Control yogurt. I know it has Splenda, so I don't know if you do splenda or not. But, it comes in flavors - strawberry, blueberry, peach, raspberry, vanilla - and tastes like the "yogurt" that kids eat, not like the real stuff like Fage, so whatever you're going for...

A "cup" has 3g carbs, 2g sugar, at least for the vanilla. It also has 60 cals, 3g fat, and 5g protein.

I do think it would be helpful to clarify what "sugar free" means -- different things to different people, apparently.

It can mean "no added sugars," in which case although plain yogurt does have a small amount of naturally occurring lactose, it could be considered "sugar-free." I suppose that could still be sweetened with Splenda and be "sugar-free."

OTOH, "no processed sugars" means that unprocessed sugars from fruit or honey could be added -- hard to see how this would be "sugar free," but it's true that it wouldn't have white sugar.

no sugar added yogurt

I really like weight watcher's rasberry yogurt. It has a sugar substitute, but is better than alot of the other sweetened yogurts. I guess it depends on the flavor too. THe key lime pie is good.

I find Fage at both Whole Foods and Trader Joe's in my area - it's a "Greek" type yogurt--FF has a mouth feel similar to sour cream! :-)

Trader Joe's also makes a similar Mediterranean yogurt as well.

Is there Such Thing as Sugar-free Yoghurt

In Yoghurt the culture acts on lactose giving lactic acid.So, lactose must be present, without the natural lactose in milk, yoghurt cannot be produced.Yoghurt is a fermented milk product.

This then means " no added sugar " and "Sugar-free" refers to the same
as far as yoghurst are concerned
