M&S activehealth™ Low Fat Natural Yogurt

Natural yogurt, especially those full of pre and pro biotics are known to be good for our digestive health. But nowadays, some manufacturers are fortifying their yogurts with extra Vitamin D. This means we can enjoy even more health benefits from a tasty pot of yogurt.

One of the most recent to add Vitamin D is Marks and Spencer with their new activehealth™ Low Fat Natural Yogurt. It’s super creamy but still low in fat. And if you’re suffering from a lack of sunshine during the winter months, your bones will be thankful for the extra vitamin D.

Marks & Spencer activehealth™ low fat natural yogurt is made to a new recipe as part of the Eat Well range.

If you’re interested in the science stuff, a 125g serving (quarter of a pot) provides 1.8g of inulin prebiotic, 36% of the suggested daily intake of 5g and 1 x 10 (to the power of 9) of the probiotic culture Lactobacillus acidophilus.
And printed on the pot:

“activehealth™ … we want to help you get the best nutrition. That’s why we’ve created a range of food enriched with beneficial ingredients and nutrients to meet all your needs, from digestive health to reducing cholesterol.”

This yogurt is slightly higher in fat and calories than I’d normally buy. However I purchased this with my hubby in mind. He’s recently been diagnosed as having a low Vitamin D count, so thought this might help.

Of course I had to try it out myself. Although low fat, it is extremely creamy. In fact, I found it a bit too rich for my liking, probably because I’m so used to eating yogurts which are even lower in fat. However, other family members liked this and because it’s so thick, it’s great as a topping for fruit.

Marks & Spencer activehealth™ low fat natural yogurt has added prebiotic, probiotics and vitamin D but no artificial colours, flavourings or preservatives. Available in a large 500g pot in M&S Food halls.
