Calories down, benefits up

More companies are now radically changing recipes in the search for a better nutritional balance, even to the point of challenging nature’s own formulations.

Coca-Cola has done this with its recently launched Fairlife milk.  Next month, General Mills will be altering its Yoplait Original flavoured yogurt to provide:

  • 20 fewer calories per 170g pot
  • 30% less sugar
  • 20% more protein.

Also, the fat content will rise from 0.9% to 1.2%.

This reflects two new trends:

  • The food and drinks industries are intent on reducing the sugar content of regular products.
  • Butterfat is gradually beginning a rehabilitation.
