Yogurt can be a great snack choice. It regulates the digestive system, provides your body with protein, and is usually low in fat and calories. However, as always, label reading, specifically in this case of ingredient lists, is important. We found that plain yogurt rather than flavored choices is always a better choice, whether it's Greek or not. FoodFacts.com is all about clearing up food illusions, because we know that many ads and articles out there can be deceiving while promoting certain products.
Dannon's Nonfat Light N' Fit Yogurt is a perfect example of these food deceptions: bit.ly/1bfmW2X
Although it may be low in calories and contains no fat, this product's ingredient list is long and extremely controversial. Ever wonder why you get so much flavor for so little calories? Ingredients like Red 40 and Acesulfame Potassium are the culprits.

This yogurt contains the same amount of calories and is also nonfat, but it lacks all of the artificial ingredients, leaving only healthy bacteria in the ingredient list. It may be flavorless, but for just a few more calories, you can turn it into a delicious dessert by adding nuts and honey.
