Yeo Valley Family Farm 0% Fat Natural Yogurt

I love flavoured yogurts and usually get through at least two small pots a day. But recently I've been eating a lot more natural yogurt for a number of reasons.

Reason 1. The cost of buying lots of individual pots can be quite expensive, even with the multi buy deals. Reason 2. Lots of small pots take up so much space in the fridge.
Reason 3. Natural yogurt is so versatile and I can use it in smoothies, and as a topping for fruit.
Reason 4. Eating natural, unadulterated yogurt is simply healthier.

Each week I’ve been trying out different brands and this week it was the turn of Yeo Valley 0% Natural Yogurt ‘Tastier and Creamier’.



500g pot
What I particularly liked about Yeo Valley is that they produce small 150g individual sized pots. Yes I know I complained about them taking up space in the fridge, but in this case buying one small pot gave me the chance of sampling it to see whether it was worthwhile buying a larger 500g pot.

Yeo Valley 0% fat yogurt is an organic bio live yogurt with no added ingredients. Despite having 0% fat, it has a delicious, creamy consistency with a mild taste. It’s actually quite similar to the Danone Activia Natural low fat yogurt. This is definitely one of my favourites and will be a regular on my shopping list from now on.

Yeo Valley's natural yogurt with 4% fat is also available in a 1kg pot but so far I haven't seen the 0% fat variety in this size.

Here is quick nutritional comparison between the 0% fat and 4% fat yogurts per 100ml:

Yeo Valley 0% fat natural yogurt: 59 calories, 0g fat, 8.5g sugar, 210mg calcium.
Yeo Valley natural yogurt: 83 calories, 4.2g fat, 6.5g sugar, 160mg calcium.

Yeo Valley yogurt is widely available in UK supermarkets.

Nutrition Information per 100ml: 59.3 calories, 5.9g protein, 8.5g carbohydrates, 8.5g sugars, 0g fat, 0g saturates, 0g fibre, 0.23g salt, 210mg calcium. Suitable for vegetarians.





Sugars are from naturally occurring sugars in the yogurt (lactose).

No added ingredients. Contains live cultures: Bifidobacterium, Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Streptococcus Thermophilus.

Yeo Valley have been awarded the The Soil Association’s Ethical Trade certification for supporting organic British dairy farms.

  1. I must say I really enjoy the Yeo Valley range too. Quite creamy and satisfying even for a fat free option.

  2. Yes it is lovely. It's the only Yeo variety I buy though as the flavoured yogs have sugar added which adds too much to the calorie count (for me) :(
