I have been on a quest to find yogurt with LIVE and ACTIVE cultures in it for my hubby who has just been inundated with anti-biotics. The doctor and pharmacist both told me it had to have both LIVE and ACTIVE to give him his good bacteria back in his body. I started reading on this subject and found that our bodies need 85% of the good bacteria in our bodies and eating processed foods kill most of those little guys.
Well the only two I found was a Greek yogurt by Chobani and Bryers Yo Crunch. Yep, not the Activia or the Danactive have both live and active. Hmmm, marketing ploys abound.
Here is where it gets interesting.
6oz of Yo Crunch Bryers yogurt has 33g of carbs and 180 calories
4oz of Yo Crunch with Truvia has 20g of carbs and 100 calories
But…6oz of the Greek yogurt has 20g of carbs and 140 calories with 0 from fat! Wow was that a surprise.
So as things always go, the best for us is the most expensive. But I was happy to see a sugar free product made with Truvia instead of Splenda. That was encouraging. But what surprised me more was that out of all the yogurts on the market, even the "digestive" helping ones. Only two were LIVE and ACTIVE cultures.
