Is Anchor Greek style yoghurt now called Anchor Protein+ yoghurt? If so, why was it changed?

Yes that is correct, we have changed the design and name of this product to call out the high protein content of Anchor Protein+ yoghurt and align it with other Protein+ products under the Anchor brand, such as Anchor Protein+ Lite Milk, Anchor Protein+ Smoothie Powders.

We have also moved the fruit to the bottom of the tub instead of the top, because we believe our high protein yoghurt is delicious, the fruit just adds a little more special to your mouthful.

Rest assured it’s still the same great product you had with Anchor Greek style yoghurt.

Is Anchor Protein+ Yoghurt okay if I am lactose intolerant?

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 Protein+ 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.
