BNI™ 091.56s: Low-fat flavored yogurt (average)

dietBNI™ 91.56s: Low-fat flavored yogurt (average), NZ, 2011.

This is the nutritional value of low-fat flavored yogurt (ie, with a fat content between 0.4g and 2g per 100g). Below is an analysis of the average aggregated nutritional value of a sample of 110 brands and sub-brands. The sample was collated as part of a research on the nutritional composition of yogurts in New Zealand. This nutritional profile can be summarised as being, mainly, biased towards excess of sugar, adequate in protein, saturated fat and sodium, high in carbohydrate, and low in fat and fiber. It also provides about 161mg of calcium per 100g.

This nutritional value may be more representative of those who change brands often, as well as of the population, in general. However, it is less representative of the universe of brands on offer and of those consumers who prefer a particular brand of low-fat flavored yogurt, for which a prototypical nutritional value may be more relevant (see foodBNI).
