Calories down, benefits up
More companies are now radically changing recipes in the search for a better nutritional balance, even to the point of challenging nature’s own formulations.
Coca-Cola has done this with its recently launched Fairlife milk. Next month, General Mills will be altering its Yoplait Original flavoured yogurt to provide:
- 20 fewer calories per 170g pot
- 30% less sugar
- 20% more protein.
Also, the fat content will rise from 0.9% to 1.2%.
This reflects two new trends:
- The food and drinks industries are intent on reducing the sugar content of regular products.
- Butterfat is gradually beginning a rehabilitation.
