However, as with other foods, yogurt can only be as healthy as its source, and added ingredients can change it from good to bad. When purchasing yogurt, always choose an organic brand, which will be free of antibiotics and rBGH. Also, pay close attention to the sugar content. Plain yogurt will have the lowest sugar content, and fruit-added or sweetened yogurt will have the greatest amounts. Most yogurts today contain more sugar and flavorings than candy does!
Another great yogurt option is Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt has gone through an extra straining process, creating its very creamy texture, higher protein content, and lower carbohydrate content. Greek yogurt is also more concentrated and has higher probiotic content than regular yogurt.
With its low-carb, high-protein content and live probiotics, Greek yogurt is a great option for any diabetic who is not intolerant to cow’s milk.
