Yogurt buyers beware: Aspartame and artificial colors frequently found in popular yogurts (correction)


All natural yogurt
(NaturalNews) Correction: This article initially identified Yoplait and Great Value yogurts made with aspartame as being labeled "all natural." This information, provided by Food Essentials, was in error. While the products do contain aspartame and artificial colors, they are not labeled "all natural," Natural News has been informed. We regret the error and have corrected the article as now shown below.

If you're buying yogurt sold at the grocery store, watch out for questionable ingredients like aspartame and artificial colors. These ingredients are commonly used in yogurt products advertised as being "zero calorie" or "sugar free," and if you don't read the ingredients labels, you might miss the truth about what they really contain.

When you buy yogurt, don't forget to read the ingredients labels

As these two yogurt products clearly demonstrate, when you buy yogurt, make sure you really read the ingredients labels. This is especially true if you're hoping to avoid chemical sweeteners and coloring agents.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is the founding editor of NaturalNews.com, the internet's No. 1 natural health news website, now reaching 7 million unique readers a month.

In late 2013, Adams launched the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, where he conducts atomic spectroscopy research into food contaminants using high-end ICP-MS instrumentation. With this research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products to low levels by July 1, 2015.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource now featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.
