16 Flavors for New Yogurt Line
“Dairy foods, such as low-fat and fat-free yogurt, provide a unique package of essential nutrients, including calcium, vitamin D, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and protein, not found in most other foods that work together to help build and maintain healthy bones,” says Beth Bruck-Upton, RD director of nutrition affairs, American Dairy Association/Dairy Council of Nebraska.
However, the low calorie count isn’t the only feature in these yogurts helping the gut—Roberts Dairy yogurts all contain live, active cultures.
“Beyond bone health, scientists have found that intake of yogurt with active cultures may aid digestion, ease gastrointestinal symptoms, boost immunity, and fight infection,” Bruck-Upton says. “These specific health benefits depend on the strain and viability of the culture in yogurt. This is why it is important to choose yogurt with a seal indicating that it contains live, active cultures.”
Available where Roberts Dairy products are sold, the yogurts can be found in 16 flavors. In low fat: Strawberry, Vanilla, Peach, Raspberry, Strawberry Banana, White Chocolate Raspberry, Blueberry, and Cherry Vanilla. In fat free: Peach, Strawberry, Blueberry, Strawberry Banana, Vanilla, Very Cherry, Boston Cream Pie, and Black Cherry.
