Mother Dairy fruit yoghurt contains helpings of fresh Raspberry fruit blended in with milk based yoghurt.
A 100 gm serving of the product has 18 gm of sugar which makes it harmful for diabetics and pre-diabetics, and also to those wanting to lose weight.
The foodnetindia rating for this product:-
foodnetindia safety rating : 4 – (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unsafe to very safe)
We are concerned about the high amount of sugar in this product, as consuming just two servings totalling 200 grams will exceed the recommended total daily sugar allowance even for healthy people! Consuming even one serving daily delivers enough sugar to be a cause of obesity and diabetes and, therefore, it is advisable that this product should be consumed only in very small quantities and not frequently, even by healthy people .
foodnetindia wholesomeness rating : 5 – (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unbalanced nutrition profile to excellent nutrition profile)
We like the fact that this product contains healthy and nutritional milk and milk solids, and also fruit, but we don’t like the fact that there is high amount of added sugar in the product which makes it unhealthy and possibly unsafe for some people.
Ingredients in Mother Dairy Fruit Yoghurt which are a concern
- Permitted synthetic food colour: IN 122
- Added Flavour (Nature Identical Flavouring Substances
Mother Dairy Fruit Yoghurt contains 18 gm sugar per 100 gm. This food product does not specify which sugar has been used. This is important because different sugars have different metabolic effects. For example, Sucrose (Cane Sugar) is very different from Fructose (Fruit Sugar). Some foods use high fructose corn syrup which may be harmful in much lower quantities than sucrose. We believe that it is not responsible behaviour for a brand to not clearly state what ingredients have been used.
Permitted synthetic food colour 122
It is a synthetic Azo dye which is a red food colour. Very soluble in water and since it is an azo dye, it may elicit intolerance in people intolerant to salicylates. Additionally, it is a histamine liberator, and may intensify symptoms of asthma. Combined with benzoates, it is also implicated in hyperactivity in children.
Added Flavour (Nature Identical Flavouring Substances
This food product does not specify which flavours or flavouring substances have been used. The flavours should be specified as some of them have serious side effects and may not be suitable for infants, pregnant women or people who are allergic. We believe that it is not responsible behaviour for a brand to avoid clearly stating what ingredients have been used.
By not specifying what these flavours and substances are, we are forced to consider what they are hiding and why would they be so reluctant to mention what they have used in the food product!
By this behaviour, these manufacturers expose people to possible allergens or toxins that could be avoided if consumers knew what they were.
