Low Carb Yogurt at Walmart. The Yogurt section of the dairy aisle at a Walmart store can be divided into two sections. High carb yogurt, and low carb yogurt. The high carb yogurts are nearly all sweetened with sugar or high fructose corn syrup.
The only exception is the Fage Greek Yogurt with no sugar added. It's available in Plain, Strawberry and Peach flavors, but it's still sweetened with honey. This is not a zero carb, keto friendly yogurt as the label mentions 20 grams of carbs per serving, but it's certainly lower in carbs than most other sweetened yogurts.
The Yogurt section of the produce department at Walmart had a plethora of low-carb yogurts in it. While the fat-free plain yogurt I usually buy is only nine grams of carbs per cup, the lowest carb yogurt I could find was Dannon Light & Fit Carb & Sugar Control, which has only five grams of carbs per six ounces.
Low-carb yogurt has been around for a while, but it's become a very hot niche in the past couple of years. The main reason for its popularity is that once you start eating low carb, you can't go back. This means that you can't eat plain old yogurt anymore it's either high fat or low carb. For people who need to eat a low carb diet, this is an inconvenient and expensive problem to solve.
Luckily, there are several companies that make and sell low carb yogurt that is delicious, healthy and relatively inexpensive. It's usually made from soy or almond milk and contains a small amount of protein from whey powder.
The main factors in choosing the best low carb yogurt are:
Frothing: The frothing ingredient in the product determines which type you'll use. Soy yogurt froths just fine, but some brands add pea protein to their product (and others use casein instead).
Calories: Low-carb yogurts are higher in calories than traditional yogurts. Most are around 100 calories per serving (with soy yogurts often being higher than dairy yogurts), while regular yogurt usually runs between 80 and 90 calories per serving.
There are many different kinds of yogurt, from the familiar Greek or Icelandic variety, to fruit-flavored yogurt. And then there's low carb yogurt.
This kind of yogurt is made by fermenting milk with a bacterial culture, and is usually lower in fat and sugar than regular yogurt.
All yogurts are low carb, but not all low carb yogurts are low in calories (a cup of low carb yogurt can contain around 200 calories). So how do you know which kind of low carb yogurt is good for you? It's all about the ingredients used.
Most brands of regular yogurt contain milk cream, sugar and other additives that can be processed by the body as sugar. Low carb yogurt contains only milk and lactose (the sugar in milk), which makes it much easier for your body to process and metabolize. Therefore, most experts recommend eating low carb or full-fat dairy products to reap the benefits of their satiating effect on your gut.
