Food Review: Yo-Plus Digestive Health by Yoplait

I love yogurt and am fascinated by functional foods. Now I know probiotics might be trendy, but this healthy bacteria seems to benefit many people with digestive issues.

I was curious to try Yo-Plus by Yoplait ($3.50 / 4 pack). No only does it contain Yoplait's Optibalance bacteria mixture, this yogurt has added fiber in the form of inulin as well as vitamins A and D. Yoplait claims that the added fiber helps keep the good bacteria happy, and don't we all really want plentiful and happy bacteria living in our guts.

To see how this yogurt tastes and how it compares with Acitiva by Dannon, just

.

Yogurt 4 oz. Calories Total Fat (g) Cholesterol (g) Sugars (g) Protein (g) Calcium % Fiber (g)
Dannon Activia 110 2 5 17 4 15 0
Yoplait Yo-Plus 110 1.5 10 16 4 15 3

Since I have a healthy fear of sweets, I was delighted that this vanilla yogurt didn't overwhelm my palate with sweetness. The texture was fine, too, nice and smooth even with the added fiber. I don't really suffer from excessive bloating or Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), so I cannot speak to the health claims of "natural regulation." I do appreciate getting three grams of extra fiber in my diet, but am used to yogurt being made with milk and active cultures, aka bacteria. This yogurt contains among other ingredients: modified corn starch, whey protein concentrate, kosher gelatin, and tricalcium phosphate. Not that these ingredients are necessarily bad, but I think of yogurt as a simple, unprocessed food. But I guess to make a food multitask on such a high level you have to add a few things.

If you have the time, you can print a coupon to save $1 when you buy a four pack of the Yo-Plus. You have to load the "coupon printer" in order to print. If you use a Mac, I found it easier to print when using Safari as my browser.

this yogurt is great. i've tried the vanilla. i like that it has a little more protein than activia. do they both have no asparatem or hfcs?

yeah I was a little apprehensive to switch from activia but perhaps I'll consider it now..or at least alternate between the two

I have tried the blackberry pomegranate and it's really good. Still prefer the Dannon yogurt shots for my daily probiotics though.

The black cherry flavor is delish! I use it as a dessert substitute. Yum!

I think regular yogurt is healthy enough.

Love this stuff! Blackberry/Pomogranite and Raspberry/Cranberry are my favorites. Oliver (the cutie on my avatar) and I share a cup and spoon on most days! :D

I love this yogurt, too, in almost all of the flavors. Strawberry is good, too - but I think the peach is my favorite. They also have blueberry and I think, pomegranate.
