Yogurt WITHOUT aspartame/sucralose/splenda!!!!!!!!!!


Quote  |  Reply

Here's the deal.  I'd really love to include some low fat yogurt into my diet, but nearly ALL of them contain aspartame/sucralose/splenda.  I'm an advocate of "eating clean" or organic, unprocessed foods so I'd prefer regular sugar to these questionable substitutes. 

The problem is I cannot digest organic dairy!!!  And the organic yogurts seem to be the only ones available minus these ingredients.  So,....does anyone know of another option?  It would be much appreciated!  Thank you :-)

Greek yogurt -- I don't think it's all organic.  Or get plain, non-fat yogurt and add your own fruit/flavors/sweeteners.

Why can't you digest organic diary?  I am very lactose intolerant, but I can eat yogurt, any kind.  Just wondering, never heard of it before,

Thanks.  I honsestly never thought about just purchasing plain yogurt.  Probably save $ that way too, and get to add whatever flavors I want!

I'm not sure why I can't digest organic dairy.  Whenever I've tried organic milk or yogurt I get a tummy ache.  I can drink and eat the reuglar stuff though.  I guess I just kind of credit it to being raised on the processed stuff!

 

Thanks for the advice!

It's usually only the pots of fruit yoghurt that contain the funny ingredients.  If you buy plain yogurt (any kind really) and add your own fruit then you get around the whole artificial sweetner thing....  or you can sweeten it with some sugar or honey yourself.

 

Honey sounds nice Laughing

One of my favourite treats is a good-sized scoop of greek yoghurt (and don't mess around with the fat-free stuff because it's watery and acidic!) with a drizzle of runny honey on top and some toasted almonds.... Food of the gods.

And you could always think about making your own...  yogurt-making machines are small (toaster-ish sized) and relatively inexpensive (@ $30).  Just add milk (whatever fat percentage you'd like!) and turn it on.  Voila!  Yogurt!

Certain varieties of Activia yogurt contain sugar instead of artificial sweeteners. I always buy plain yogurt & sweeten it myself though.

Why would organic yogurt bother you & not non-organic?

I don't know!  Any doctors trolling these boards with a guess? Hee hee

LoL I wish my kitchen was big enough to house things like yogurt makers and all those neat little appliances.

hm maybe try soy yogurt?

it's a little gray looking but pretty tasty.

Cascade Fresh is sweetened only with fruit juice and is available in both organic and non-organic. It is also available in fat free, low fat, and whole milk varieties. I prefer flavoring my own plain yogurt, just as many people on this thread have mentioned, but Cascade Fresh is a good to-go yogurt. :-)

I used to mix 2 dessert spoons of greek yoghurt with a handful of strawberries a bit of honey and a little bit of milk and blend it, it makes a lovely smoothie, nice for a really hot day........... the kids liked it too

I make my own yogurt because it is almost impossible to find unsweetened low-fat yogurt.

I must live in some bizaro world. Pretty much all the groceries stores here, California, sell just plain none-fat, low fat, full fat yogurt without all the artificial sweeteners.

Thanks, I've never seen Cascade Fresh around here (PA) before though.  Probably a west coast thing.  I'll google and see where it's distributed (ah the information age).

I just eat plain unsweetened natural yoghurt. Sweetened yoghurt tastes like a dessert to me.

Can't you just eat plain fat free yogurt?

Like coach_k, I am very lactose intolerant aswell, but can digest yogurt just fine. I am not sure if it is available where you are, but the kind of yogurt I eat is Liberte's organic probiotic Svelte Yogurt.

May I recommend making your own yogurt using a milk you can digest- if organic is a problem for you, use non-organic, choose skim & make your own with a probiotic starter.   I discovered and easy hassel free way to make my own and you don't need to buy a bunch of expensive stuff or spend ages doing it.

Just so you know, this topic is from 2009.
