[REVIEW & GIVEAWAY] New Yoplait Lactose Free Yogurt
Once upon a time I was the dairy QUEEN. My favorite dairy products were cheese, milk and especially yogurt. Now, with no thanks to my children, I get extremely sick when I eat yogurt. I havent seen a doctor yet about being lactose intolerant, but I’m sure that I am.
According to Yoplait, “There are actually millions of Americans with lactose intolerance – and for them, avoiding dairy may help minimize uncomfortable side effects, but did you know avoiding dairy can have unintended health consequences? According to the National Institute of Health, when dairy is avoided, there are lower intakes of calcium and vitamin D in the diet, both of which are important bone building nutrients often found in dairy. Avoiding dairy can create higher risk for osteoporosis.” YIKES
February is National Lactose Intolerance Awareness Month and Yoplait has announced its New Yoplait Lactose Free yogurt. Lactose Free comes in four delicious flavors – Strawberry, Peach, French Vanilla and Cherry – and contains 50% of the recommended Daily Value of calcium, with vitamins A and D in every cup. Lactose Free contains no artificial sweeteners and can be used in some of your favorite recipes – like chocolate crème brulee and strawberry cheesecake.
