I've found an orange creme Yoplait Whip (140 calories) that I can enjoy. This reminds me of an orange push-up...almost.
Now a member of the healthy yogurt eaters of the world, I decided to read the ingredient list. Is this stuff really good for me????!!!!!
I have never been a sweet milk drinker, ice cream often does not sit well in my stomach, and buttermilk with cornbread - out of the question!
Here's a list of ingredients:
- low fat orange creme yogurt, which consists of the following:
- cultured, pasteurized, grade A, reduced fat milk
- nonfat milk
- high fructose corn syrup
- modified corn starch
- kosher gelatin (Some Kosher gelatins are made with agar-agar, most are not.) (Kosher gelatin can be made with fish bones, and/or beef skins.)
- orange puree (WHOO HOO! finally something that sounds good)
- potassium sorbate added to maintain freshness
- natural flavor
- colored with annatto extract (used to color cheese yellow) (from wikipedia: In the United States, annatto extract is listed as a color additive “exempt from certification” and is informally considered to be a natural color)
- vitamin A acetate
- vitamin D3
- lactic acid esters of mono and diglycerides
- nitrogen (we put this in tires at work)
Again I ask - do the good qualities outweigh the bad in a serving of yogurt?
