General Mills' Yoplait introduces lactose-free yogurt
MINNEAPOLIS — February is Lactose Intolerance Awareness Month, and Yoplait is encouraging people to say "yes" to dairy by introducing its new Yoplait Lactose Free. This new product is 99% fat-free and packed with 50% of the daily value of calcium and vitamin D.
“People with lactose intolerance may avoid yogurt altogether because they don’t want to deal with the worry of digestive symptoms,” says Christina Meyer-Jax, registered dietitian and Yoplait Lactose Free spokesperson. “When people avoid dairy, like yogurt, they may have lower intakes of important bone-building nutrients like calcium and vitamin D. With 50% of the daily value of calcium and vitamin D, Yoplait Lactose Free offers a great solution.”
Yoplait Lactose Free is available in four flavors: strawberry, peach, cherry and french vanilla, and contains no artificial sweeteners.
