Yeo Valley Bio Light Organic Yogurt Review

Yeo Valley Bio Light Organic Strawberry yogurtYeo Valley, makers of organic yogurts, have brought out a lower calorie version of their flavoured yogurts called Bio Light. They’ve achieved a lower calorie status by removing virtually all the fat and around one third of the sugar.

Bio Light yogurts are available in 100g pot sizes (packs of four) and 450g pots in the following varieties: Strawberry, Blueberry & Blackcurrant, Peach.

All 100g pots contain around 65 calories.

Yeo Valley are a well known organic dairy company with a wide range of plain and flavoured organic yogurts as well as ice cream, butter and milk.

What they say about their range of Bio Light Organic Yogurts:

I decided to try the Strawberry yogurt to compare it with my current favourite – Danone Strawberry Light & Free.

This strawberry yogurt is very pale looking with not too much in the way of fruit pieces. At first taste it seemed very bland with hardly any flavour. Eating a bit more, it reminded me of the Petit Filous fromage frais.

There’s a bit of a sharp undercurrent taste which did diminish as I persevered with the yogurt. But, although I ate the remaining yogurts, the flavour wasn’t strong enough for me and I like to have bigger pieces of fruit.

The yogurt isn’t particularly thin but not especially creamy either, which is to be expected when nearly all the fat has been removed! Also it is a Greek style yogurt so much of the whey will have been drained off so this helps to make it a bit thicker. However, the fat content in the original yogurts certainly isn’t high at just 3.8 per 100ml.

I did find that swirling the yogurt into blended frozen strawberries with almond milk gave the yogurt the extra boost in flavour it needed and was much more enjoyable.
