Anchor Greek Natural Unsweetened yoghurt contains only 1.5g sugar per 100g which is naturally occurring due to the presence of lactose in milk. The flavoured variants (Manuka Honey and Blackberry) contain between 7.1-7.3g of sugar per 100g. 18% of the sugar in Anchor Greek flavoured yoghurt variants is naturally occurring from the lactose in milk, and the remaining is added sugar from the fruit or honey preparation.
Yes, there is added sugar in Anchor Greek Blackberry and Manuka Honey variants which comes from the fruit and honey preparations that are added to the plain yoghurt. Anchor Greek flavoured variants contain less than 2 ¼ teaspoons of added sugar per serve. There is no added sugar in the Anchor Greek Natural Unsweetened yoghurt, only naturally occurring lactose (milk sugar).
A small amount of sugar can be helpful to improve the taste of nutrient-rich foods like yoghurt – just as you might add honey and fruit to unsweetened yoghurt at home. The sugar in the fruit preparations used in Anchor Greek also has a functional purpose. It can be challenging to make a no added sugar fruit yoghurt because the sugar acts as a preservative to help slow down the loss in quality of the fruit over time.
Anchor Greek Natural Unsweetened Plain yoghurt does not contain any additives.
The fruited variants do contain approved food additives. These food additives may include preservative 202 (Potassium Sorbate) which helps keep food safe right up to the best before date; acidity regulators (Citric Acid and Sodium Citrates) to give fruit its characteristic tang, improve the consistency of fruit and prevent natural fruit discolouration or browning.
These additives are commonly used in food products to ensure product quality and safety. All food additives and food ingredients must be compliant with legislation set by Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) to ensure they are safe to eat.
Anchor Greek is free from artificial colours.
These numbers (also known as ‘E-numbers’) are simply used to identify ingredients added to foods. The food additive names can be confusing so each food ingredient is given a short code number. This code number indicates that the added ingredient has undergone strict safety assessments by regulatory agencies such as Food Standards Australian New Zealand (FSANZ) to ensure that it is approved for use in food and safe to consume.
Anchor Greek does not contain any gluten-containing ingredients
No, Anchor Greek Yoghurt does not contain gelatin.
Yes, Anchor Greek Yoghurt is suitable for vegetarians
Lactose intolerance is a condition where people may be unable to tolerate significant quantities of lactose (the naturally occurring sugar in milk) as they have a shortage of the enzyme (lactase) which breaks the lactose down in order to digest it. The severity and symptoms of lactose intolerance may vary individually but many people with lactose intolerance may be able to consume some dairy products, such as hard cheese - which is naturally very low in lactose - and yoghurt - which contains live cultures which have already broken down some of the lactose.
Lactose intolerance is different to cow’s milk allergy which is a severe and potentially life-threatening condition where all dairy products must be strictly avoided. Anchor Greek Yoghurt is NOT suitable for someone with a dairy or cow’s milk allergy.
If you have questions about lactose intolerance or dairy/cow’s milk allergy, please speak with a health professional for confirmation and advice specific to your individual needs.
