Glenisk Yogurt – Organic Bio Live No Added Sugar / Reduced Sugar

Yoghurt was already drunk in ancient times. It was made with buffalo milk, as well as goat’s or cow’s milk. Today this product is produced on an industrial scale, valued by nutritionists and consumers due to the nutritional, dietary and taste properties.

It turns out that in addition to milk and yogurt culture (which ferment, forming a yogurt) manufacturers add more thickening agents, for example, milk protein (a strong allergen), milk powder (contains the milk sugar and cholesterol). Apparently without this consistency it would be watery, and the yogurt would look unappetizing. The ingredients of the yoghurt we also have all sorts of additives, such as:
Thickeners and stabilizers:
E410 – Locus Bean Gum
E1422 – Modified starch
E440 – Pectins
E412 – Guar Gum

Food coloring:
E162 – betanin (beetroot extract)
E120 – carmine

Natural flavors and natural identical flavor (FDA)

I have to test Glenisk Organic Bio Live Yogurt. Yogurt comes in four flavors: strawberry, blueberry, raspberry and natural; in packs of 4 pieces and costs €2.75 (Tesco).

I can’t really objectively judge the flavor of the yogurt – it’s really an individual assessment of each of us. I can’t really talk about this without being bias… But what interests me is the hard evidence… That is part of the label. What I found in the tested yogurt?

As you can see the producers forget about us, calling something natural, when the reality is completely different and awful. You really should read the labels and ingredients; it doesn’t take too much time. Because when it comes to yogurt, an old well-known principle, says: the shorter the composition, the better the product. Apparently it’s not a philosophy. It is a pity that the producers did not remember. And given a choice between yogurt produced from natural milk, and the powder – always grab the first one.
A smaller amount of sugar, does not mean that yogurt is good, but the whole range of Glenisk Organic Bio Live Yogurt, my attention was drawn to natural yoghurt. I used it in my recipe for cucumber raita, proved to be sensational.
