This “Healthy Yogurt” is Practically Ice Cream.

October 15, 2015

Hello health nuts.
Don’t you just hate it when you find a good product that you never bought because you were afraid it was expensive but then you get it for free at Chik-Fil-A and get more than one because it’s free and then eat it and feel good that you fed your body juices of life and then turn it around to see why it’s so good only to see that the thing has about 20 grams of sugar? Guess what also has about 20 grams of sugar.
But thankfully, there are more outstanding differences between the two so it’s not exactly like eating the ice cream; there’s far more potassium, more protein, and less sodium. And to make things fair, yogurt has some natural sugar from the milk that adds about 7 grams (per six-ounce serving, according to sparkpeople.com) to the total count, apparently. But wouldn’t the same go for the ice cream bar because it has milk in it too? My internet’s going too slow to look this up.
(Ok I had to look it up: so yes the same goes for the ice cream bar. The bar probably has more fat, and manufactures add more sugar to low-fat products…you thought you were being healthy!)
As a rule of thumb:
4 grams = 1 teaspoon, and there’s about 7 grams of sugar NATURALLY in Greek yogurts (about 12 in non greek). The site says if you’re getting more than 20 grams of sugar, well daggumit, you eatin ice cream.
So be careful, health nuts. Read your labels and do your research. But not too much or you’ll reaaally go nuts.
