LOVE this! Thanks for posting, OP. Heat added,
#2
Also meant to be really good for probiotic intake and meant to have been streamed (?) so it's low in lactose for lactose intolerance.


Just going by what I read online. Recently read into probiotic intake.

Not yet tried the natural one. Had tried the Strawberry small pot was something could get used to.

Decent with weetabix, this. Any other recommendations?

Special K good too

Do real men eat reduced sugar products? I'm not sure.....
#6
i didn't enjoy the fruit ones AT ALL but the plain one is nice. I buy frozen blueberries and add a small handful. Amazing (after a few tries), much healthier than those muller lights or creamy premium style yoghurts.

agreed. Eating it is hard work and not worth the effort.

Foolish men eat full sugar products. Not worth the health drawbacks.

SKYR - isn't that the one with the advert making out it is Icelandic, but then says it is made in Germany?

It comes from Iceland the country, rather than the supermarket but perhaps they sell it too.

How does this compare to Fage 0%? Is it similar to Greek yogurt?

It'll have to get some of this, I was concerned I was a theoretical man and this will resolve my quandary.

skyr is a type of dairy product and Arla is the company selling it so probably not based in Iceland

Probiotic intake is not that relevant. Prebiotic intake and looking after the existing microbiome is far more important. You can intake billions of bacteria a day but once you defecate they're all gone and more. The human microbiome is poorly understood even after spending billions in research, it will take many decades to unravel how it works and which is a good combination of bacterial species. Don't believe the hype, prebiotics mean more in scientific studies than they do in reality. Even very powerful probiotics such as Elixir-Probiotic have limited real world effect and they are many times stronger than anything in this product.

If you must take a probiotic then take it in a natural form such as Kefir or other fermented foods. The end user the consumer mostly has little scientific knowledge so are easily swayed by buzz words such as probiotics.

Introducing prebiotics in the diet is cheap and effective at positively modifying the gut microbiome. Recently detrimental gut bacteria have been blamed for onset of Parkinson's disease and cited as a breakthrough. However much research is needed, as I stated earlier we have data that shows evidence of beneficial effect from certain microbial strains, but simply introducing them via supplementation, well there's not enough evidence yet. I would go for the tried and tested method of eating foods that are prebiotics and consuming some fermented foods although this is not strictly necessary. Experimental methods are supplementing Inulin, Binumo GOS and Potato Starch, very experimental method are fecal transplants which have evidence of effect, but as you can guess probably not that desirable for everyone :)

Wow, nice informative post, fishmaster. I take it your not a GP then?
I've not heard of Kefir before - I have a quick googling and that looks great stuff. Please tell me more eg what's your recommended stuff to take for a healthy gut?
thanks

It is well worth £1. Heat added.
Most probiotics don't survive pasteurisation and preservatives that commercial foods contain. Most don't survive the stomach acids either so eating probiotic foods is not very effective. Best strategy should be to stay healthy and avoid the use of antibiotics that GPs dish out for common colds and flu etc. Sauerkraut is another probiotic food but most commercially available varieties are pasteurised.

It's a complex subject and will be largely trial and error, it depends how much you want to try and affect your gut bacteria.

Wikipedia has information regarding prebiotics albeit a bit rough around the edges >

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prebiotic_(nutrition)

Another interesting factor is that there are 100+/- trillion bacteria in the human gut, their genes interface with our bodies and there is a communication system between bacteria and between bacteria and the human body.

Bonnie Bassler has a decent TED talk regarding bacterial communication also known as Quorum sensing.

There's very strong evidence that the health of the human microbiome has a direct impact on human health. The good gut bacteria are essential due to neurochemicals they produce.

"Gut bacteria also produce hundreds of neurochemicals that the brain uses to regulate basic physiological processes as well as mental processes such as learning, memory and mood. For example, gut bacteria manufacture about 95 percent of the body's supply of serotonin, which influences both mood and GI activity." Source: http://www.apa.org/monitor/2012/09/gut-feeling.aspx

This stuff is bloody awful in my opinion. Would far rather have Greek yoghurt. Especially full fat Greek yoghurt. Difficult to get Fage 10% fat as they seem to now only do 5%. So I tend to just keep my eyes open for other 10%-ish fat Greek yoghurts. If I'm putting something in my tummy I at least want it to taste good.

Haha yeah, where they say ski. No mate it says sky - R. Its made under license, its a rip off for what your grandma and granddad made at home from going off milk.
Infant yogurt is that easy to make its genius they market it as they do.

Yawn. Is health hysteria still a thing? The biological equivalent of the umpteen ever changing flavours of 'climate' hysteria, which only ever seem to have the corroborable effect of making us more miserable and lightening our wallets?

Here's my tip... eat whichever yogurt you like, as part of a balanced diet and do some exercise.

I know stick thin healthy people who got diabetes, heart disease, dementia and piles... I know non-bingeing fat people who don't get sick with anything. It's all a crap shoot, and you take your chances. Be as sensible as you can. Being reckless can take 10 years off your life. Being happy can add 10 years to your life. Being miserable and stressed about counting every gram or calorie can take it off again...

Sensible. Balanced.

Silliest thing I ever heard, after a wife spent years hysterically removing sugar and all kinds of goodies from her husband's diet, when he still got diabetes anyway which was explained as having arisen from him eating too few calories too infrequently throughout the day, was that the doctor said 'avoid diet foods that make you think they're 'safe'... eat a bit of whatever it is that you want, and do exercise and be sensible.'

This yogurt belongs on the rank and foul list, unless you actually enjoy it.
