Low-fat yoghurts 'have more kilojoules'
Friday May 25 20:04 AEST

They claim to be "lite" and easy on the hips, but many popular low-fat yoghurts have more kilojoules than their full-fat counterparts, a study has shown.

Two of them even have more fat.

Consumer watchdog Choice studied various flavoured yoghurts and found that despite their "healthy sounding claims" they all contain more kilojoules than plain yoghurt.

The offending dairy treats market themselves as "diet", "lite" or low-fat, but all contain between 700 and 1,150 kilojoules per 200 grams, whereas normal full-fat plain yoghurt contains 608 kilojoules.

All the yoghurts also had more than seven teaspoons of sugar in each 200 gram serve.

Choice spokeswoman Indira Naidoo said some yoghurts even boasted about their fat content when it was actually quite high, but there were some truly low-fat yoghurts in the market.

Attiki Attitude Wild Strawberry (with 1,722 kilojoules) says it is "96 per cent fat-free" and Gippsland Dairy Berry Twist (with 1,346 kilojoules) promotes itself as "94 per cent fat-free", which means they have four per cent fat and six per cent fat, respectively, the study found.

"Promoting a product with four per cent or six per cent fat content as being `fat-free' is a bit rich," Ms Naidoo said.

On average, full-fat yoghurts have 3.4 per cent fat, the study said.

"The best low-fat yoghurts to buy are Nestle Diet Strawberry and Yoplait No Fat Strawberry," Ms Naidoo said.
