The Hidden Danger of Sugar Differences in Greek Yogurt

Greek yogurt is extremely popular as a snack in the U.S.  In fact, according to available data, greek yogurt accounts for 52% of the American yogurt market.  It’s a great snack that can be a healthy alternative to other snacks.

That being said, it’s very important to keep in mind the sugar level that is in the greek yogurt you are eating.  Here are two pictures that show the difference in sugar levels:

The first picture is from a Chobani greek yogurt package and the bottom picture is from a Dannon Light and Fit greek yogurt package.  Both yogurt products taste amazing, no doubt.

The shocking part is that one has the potential to derail your weight loss efforts.  The Chobani one listed above (there are other options, I’m just using this one as an example) has 19 grams of sugar.  The Dannon one listed above has only 7 grams.

12 grams isn’t a huge difference, is it?  Check out this picture that shows what 12 grams of sugar looks like:

A simple 12 grams of extra sugar is like having a bag of fruit snacks with your greek yogurt.  Indeed, that can derail your efforts.  So, next time you are out checking out a healthy snack, be sure to pay attention to the amount of sugar that’s added into that snack.

Make today a great day!
