Yoghurts (even organic ones) 'full of sugar'Nick TriggleHealth correspondent 19 September 2018Many yoghurts are full of sugar and the public should not be lulled into thinking they are eatinghealthy products, researchers say.The conclusion comes after a study of almost 900 yoghurts on sale in UK supermarkets.The Leeds University-led research found that organic yoghurts were among the most sugary types -containing more sugar per 100g than cola.Only natural and Greek-style yoghurts could be classed as low in sugar.The study - published in BMJ Open - comes as government health officials are encouragingmanufacturers to reduce the amount of sugar consumed by the public.Yoghurts have been identified as one of the food types on which Public Health England wants to seeprogress.This research was undertaken shortly after the launch of the sugar-reduction programme.Unsurprisingly, yoghurt desserts contained the most sugar - an average of 16.4g per 100g.This category also included some products that did not contain yoghurt, such as chocolate mousseand creme caramel.The second most sugary product was organic yoghurts with a typical 13.1g per 100g.Children's yoghurts typically contained 10.8g per 100g, the equivalent of more than two sugar cubes,the study found.By comparison a 100g serving of a typical cola contains 9g of sugar.The NHS recommends that children aged four to six have no more than 19g of sugar, or five sugarcubes a day, and it is advised that those aged seven to 10 consume less than 24g daily.To be classed as low sugar there needs to be no more than 5g per 100g.Only 9% of products surveyed were below this threshold.How much sugar was in the yoghurt?Desserts - 16.4g per 100gOrganic - 13.1g per 100gFlavoured - 12g per 100gFruit - 11.9g per 100gChildren's - 10.8g per 100g

Dairy alternatives - 9.2g per 100gDrinks - 9.1g per 100gNatural and Greek - 5g per 100gSince the fieldwork for the study was carried out - at the end of 2016 - progress has been made onreducing sugar consumption from yoghurts.A report published in May showed sugar content in yoghurts had been reduced by 6% in the first year,making it the only food category to exceed the 5% target. By 2020, it is expected sugar will bereduced by 20%.PHE chief nutritionist Dr Alison Tedstone said this showed \"positive steps\" were being made.But Dr Bernadette Moore, lead researcher of this study, said: \"Even if we take the reduction intoaccount, most of these yoghurts will still not be low in sugar.\"I think people, including parents, will be surprised to know just how much sugar there is in yoghurt.\"My advice would be to buy natural yoghurt and mix in your own fruit.\"

Week 4 Title: Yoghurts (even organic ones) 'full of sugar' Author: Nick Triggle Source: SummaryThe researchers say many yogurts are full of sugar but the most people think they arethe healthy products. The researchers studied the yoghurts that on sale in UKsupermarkets. After that, they found the unsurprisingly fact that yoghurt dessertscontained the most sugar. The average of sugar is 16.4 grams per 100 grams. Thiscategory of sugar included some products such as chocolate mousse and creamcaramel. In addition, the organic yoghurts contain more sugar per 100 grams thancola. Only natural and Greek-style yoghurts have low sugar. The second product thatcontained the most sugar was organic yoghurts with 13.1 grams per 100 grams andchildren's yoghurts contained the sugar 10.8 grams per 100 grams, the equal of morethan two sugar cubes. Finally, the National Health Service recommends that childrenaged four to six should consume no more than 19 grams of sugar or five sugar cubesa day and it is advised that aged seven to ten should consume less than 24 grams aday. The report published and showed sugar content in yoghurts had been reducedby 6%. In 2020, it is expected sugar will be reduced by 20%. My reaction/reflection:I think this news is a new information and good for people who care about health. Thisnews contains a normal vocabulary and quite easy to understand. They give a lot ofdetails about the average of sugar and compare the amount of sugar between theseveral types of yoghurts and sugary products. In addition, the researchers study theaverage of sugar in several yoghurts to prove the misunderstanding that yoghurts arethe healthy product and have the low amount of sugar. It’s useful research for people.Finally, we should consume the quantity of yoghurt suitably or consume the naturaland Greek-style yoghurts for your good health.
