Nutrition Info: Calories in Yami Yoghurt

Yami Yoghurt - Small cup portion

Yoghurt has entered the retail snack food market in a big way.  No longer do you find it only in the dairy section in the supermarket, you can easily find stalls selling yoghurt and yoghurt based snacks in shopping centres.

There’s a misconception that Yoghurt is healthier than Ice-cream.  There are so many varieties, styles and recipes of both yoghurt and ice-cream to compare head-to head.  However, In general, yohurt can contain much less sugar than its counterpart – but snack yoghurts that you find in retail stores isn’t all that healthy for you.

So, please don’t eat yoghurt endlessly and feel guilt-free because it does contain energy (calories).

I recently went and purchased my first Yami Yoghurt to see what all the hype is about – and also to give an estimation of the nutrition profile.  I think that these types of ‘yoghurts’ are a cross between yoghurt and soft-serve ice-cream. They certainly cannot be compared to the pure, natural, healthy kind of yoghurt that is beneficial – they are more of a confectionery item.

At Yami I chose the smallest portion of ‘natural’ flavour and had fresh strawberry as my topping. By choosing a natural flavour it doesn’t contain as many artificial colours, flavours and sugar too.  Also, if you are considering toppings – do not choose nuts, candies, syrups – the healthiest option is fresh fruit (berries are best)

I chose natural flavour with fresh strawberry

Please note: This is only an estimation based on the portion and my understanding of the ingredients.

Yami -style yoghurts are NOT the same as natural yoghurt you find in the dairy section in the supermarket.  They should be considered as more of a dessert than a healthy snack.

Also, remember that ice-cream / frozen yoghurt contains transfat, sugar and typically have artificial colours, flavours and preservatives.  So be wary of your snacking choices.
