Choosing a Healthy Flavored Yogurt

Yogurt is often marketed as a healthy, nutrient dense food. And unflavored plain yogurt can be part of a healthy diet. However, many flavored yogurts contain highly processed ingredients and are loaded with added sugar.

Healthy Flavored Yogurt:

  • Contains minimal added sugar
  • Avoids highly processed gums or thickeners, especially starch
  • Does not contain carrageenan
  • Avoids artificial colors or preservatives
  • Does not contain artificial sweeteners

In its simplest form, yogurt can be an extremely healthy food. Yogurt is made when bacteria ferments the lactic acid in milk. Healthy yogurt contains two ingredients: milk and bacterial cultures.

However, many flavored yogurts tend to have long ingredient lists.  This comprehensive guide covers what to look for in a healthier yogurt as well as what yogurt is best to avoid.

What to look for when choosing a healthy flavored yogurt

1. Healthy flavored yogurts contain minimal added sugar

Healthy yogurts should contain little to no added sugar

Many flavored yogurts contain a lot of added sugar.  In fact, some strawberry flavored yogurts contain more than a tablespoon of added sugar per 3/4 cup serving. That is more than half of the AHA’s daily recommendation of added sugar! 

Read more on recommended daily intake of added sugar and why you want to minimize added sugar consumption.

Recommendation:  The healthiest flavored yogurt is one that you make yourself. Simply buy healthy unsweetened plain yogurt and add fresh fruit. And if you want a slightly sweeter version, add a small amount of your preferred sweetener.  

2. Healthy flavored yogurts minimize gums and thickeners

healthy yogurts should avoid gums and thickeners

Many brands of flavored yogurt contain gums and other thickeners. 

Thickeners and gums are routinely used in packaged food to improve texture, shelf life, and product aesthetics. 

Typical gums and other thickeners in yogurt include guar gum, locust bean gum (also called carob bean gum), agar agar, chicory root gum, fruit pectin, modified food starch, and carrageenan.

Guar Gum.  Guar gum is a polysaccharide (polymer of sugar) extracted from the beans of the guar plant.  Also, guar gum is a soluble dietary fiber that is partially fermented by intestinal microflora.(1) 

Locust Bean Gum.  Locust Bean Gum a polysaccharide extracted from the seeds of the Carob Tree. Also called carob bean gum, locust Bean Gum is soluble dietary fiber that is fermented by intestinal microflora. (2,3)

Chicory Root Fiber.  Chicory Root Fiber is a polysaccharide extracted from chicory root. Also called inulin, Chicory Root Fiber is a soluble dietary fiber that is fermented by intestinal microflora. (4)

Chicory Root Fiber also has a slight sweet taste which is why some manufacturers add it to “reduced sugar” foods.

Fruit Pectin. Pectin is a polysaccharide found in the cell walls of most fruits and vegetables. A common ingredient in jams and fruit preserves, pectin is a soluble dietary fiber that is fermented by intestinal microflora.(5)

Gelatin. Gelatin is a polypeptide (polymer of amino acids) derived from collagen. There are no vegan or vegetarian sources of gelatin.(6)

Agar Agar. Agar is a polysaccharide extracted from marine algae. Sometimes just called Agar, agar-agar is a soluble dietary fiber that can be fermented by intestinal microflora.(7)

Recommendation: It is best to avoid foods that contain gums and other thickeners, as they are often highly processed. 

However, occasionally eating small amounts of these gums and thickeners is probably fine, unless you experience gastrointestinal discomfort or are following a specific diet.

Starch and carrageenan are an exception. It is best to avoid both additives.

3. Healthy yogurts do not contain starch

Our bodies rapidly digest starch into sugar. As such, all forms of food starch are considered high Glycemic Index (GI). 

Eating predominantly high-GI foods is associated with chronic disease and strongly associated with heart disease. (8,9)

Types of rapidly digestible starch found yogurt include: modified corn starch, modified food starch, tapioca starch, and corn starch.

Recommendation: It is best to avoid yogurts that contain any added starch.

4. Healthy flavored yogurts do not contain carrageenan

healthy yogurt should not contain carrageenan

Carrageenan is a thickener manufactured from red algae seaweed and is widely used in processed foods. (2)

Though carrageenan is listed as a “generally regarded as safe” food additive by the FDA and WHO, there is growing research that links carrageenan to inflammatory conditions, including inflammatory bowl disease. (10)

In late 2016, the National Organic Standards Board voted to prohibit the use of carrageenan in organic products.(11)   However, in 2018 the USDA decided to not implement the recommendation and carrageenan is still allowed in organic products. (12)

Recommendation:  Avoid food products containing carrageenan.

5. Healthy flavored yogurts avoid artificial colors and preservatives

healthy yogurt should not contain artificial colors and preservatives

Many flavored yogurts are prepared with natural colors (often from fruit or vegetable juice) and natural preservatives improve appearance and shelf life.

As natural options are readily available, it is best to avoid yogurts made with artificial colors and preservatives.

For detailed explanation on why it is best to avoid these artificial ingredients, check out this post on choosing healthy breakfast cereal.

6. Healthy flavored yogurts avoid artificial sweeteners

healthy yogurt should not contain artificial sweeteners

Many sweet tasting light yogurts use artificial sweeteners to achieve low calorie levels. However, though these yogurts contain minimal or no added sugar, they are still not a healthy choice.

Typical artificial sweeteners in flavored yogurt include sucralose and acesulfame potassium.

While artificial sweeteners are virtually calorie free and do not contain any added sugar, they still affect our bodies.

Artificial sweeteners can negatively impact our perception of how foods taste. Naturally sweet foods may not taste sweet enough and vegetables taste excessively bitter.(9)

Even more important, artificial sweeteners have been shown to change our microbiome, decrease satiety, and affect insulin secretion.(13) These changes can result in increased calorie consumption and weight gain.

Recommendation: Avoid foods with artificial sweeteners.

Which popular yogurts are healthy?

Strawberry yogurt is the most popular flavored yogurt in the United States. Annual sales of strawberry flavored yogurt are almost 2.5-times higher than vanilla, the second most popular yogurt flavor.(14)

We evaluated top selling strawberry yogurts using the criteria below. (15-29)

Criteria used to evaluate flavored yogurt

Healthy Strawberry Yogurt Evaluation Criteria.  Healthy yogurt avoids added sugar and heavily processed gums and thickeners

Yogurt serving sizes vary, from 113 to 170 grams. To compare between brands, all information listed below is for a 150 gram serving, (approximately 3/4 cup), the size of a single serve greek yogurt.

  • Types of added sugar and sweeteners are listed in red
  • Gums and thickeners are italicized
  • Starches are listed in red italics
  • Ingredients that are important to avoid are in bold.

There are few healthier flavored yogurts

The healthiest yogurt contains only two simple ingredients: milk and bacterial yogurt cultures. The ideal strawberry yogurt would contain milk, strawberries, and yogurt cultures.

However, most strawberry yogurts are not a healthy choice.  They contain highly processed gums and thickeners, excessive amounts of added sugar, and some don’t even contain strawberries!

Examples of healthy flavored yogurt:

Unfortunately, no store-bought strawberry yogurts could meet our stringent requirements for a healthy flavored yogurt.

While a couple strawberry yogurts were not sweetened with added sugar or artificial sweeteners, they still contained highly processed gums and thickeners.

Also, there were a few strawberry yogurts that were made with simple ingredients. However, these yogurts contained excessive amounts of added sugar.

Flavored yogurts that are okay to eat occasionally:

okay fruit strips and healthy fruit roll-ups

Many of the flavored yogurts we evaluated fall into the “okay” category.  These strawberry yogurts are probably okay if you eat them occasionally, but you don’t want to eat them every day.

However, if you are following a particular diet which avoids gums or thickeners, you will want to avoid these strawberry yogurts.

As all of these strawberry yogurts contain a thickener of some kind, they are listed in increasing amounts of added sugar.

Conclusions about choosing a healthy flavored yogurt

When it comes to finding a healthy yogurt, simple clean ingredients are best.  Most flavored yogurts contain too much added sugar and highly processed ingredients. 

If you love strawberry flavored yogurt, it is best to make your own. Find a good, high quality plain yogurt and add some fresh or frozen strawberries.

If you still prefer your yogurt a little sweeter, add a drizzle of maple syrup or honey. Just aim to keep the added sweetener to a teaspoon or so.
