As consumers look more natural products, Dannon® is adding some new products to its family of yogurts. The company has announced that consumers will have access to a nutritious and smart-calorie snack offering in its new Light & Fit® Greek Nonfat Yogurt with Zero Artificial Sweeteners, and Light & Fit Regular Nonfat Yogurt with Zero Artificial Sweeteners.
“These new offerings from Light & Fit are another way we are helping to provide consumers with the nutritious food choices they are asking for,” said Flavia Galvao, Sr. Marketing Director, Light & Fit. “We’re now offering yogurt fans the same nonfat, creamy, smooth and flavorful products they’ve come to know and seek out, minus the artificial ingredients, so those looking for a smart-calorie solution with a lot of nutrition and no artificial sweeteners can snack mindfully and deliciously.”
Each of these new products are made with the sweetness of stevia leaf extract and cane sugar, as opposed to artificial sweetness. Dannon stated in a press release that ingredients matter to consumers, particularly millennials with 39 percent of the segment switching from artificial sweeteners to an alternative low or no-calorie sweetener substitute. The products contain no artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors, or preservative ingredients.
Dannon’s Light & Fit Greek Nonfat Yogurt with Zero Artificial Sweeteners is available in six flavors; Mixed Berry, Black Cherry, Strawberry, Peach Mango, Coconut Cream, and Vanilla. Each offering is made with real fruit, has 90 calories, 13g of protein, and 3g of fiber per 5.3 oz serving.
The Light & Fit Regular Yogurt with Zero Artificial Sweeteners is available in four flavors; Strawberry, Blueberry, Vanilla, and Lemon Cream. Still boasting the creaminess that yogurt-lovers desire, this alternative to Greek yogurt has 5g of protein and 80 calories per 5.3 oz serving.
“Individual nutrition preferences and needs vary from person to person,” said Amanda Blechman, Registered Dietitian, and Scientific Affairs Manager at DanoneWave, the maker of the Dannon portfolio of yogurt in North America. “We are proud to offer a spectrum of nonfat yogurt to fit every person’s active lifestyle and healthy eating habits. As the newest addition to our yogurts, Light & Fit Greek Yogurt with Zero Artificial Sweeteners and Light & Fit Regular Yogurt with Zero Artificial Sweeteners are great for those looking to avoid artificial sweeteners while still enjoying nutrient dense foods.”
All varieties of both product lines can be found in grocery stores nationwide.
