Saying NO to Fat-free Yogurt, Please!

Majid Ali, M.D.

 

 

I do not eat nor recommend fat-free yogurt for a good reason: fat-free yogurt removes healthy fats and leaves behind unhealthy sugar. Whole milk yogurt is insulin-friendly and so is good for losing weight and preventing insulin toxicity and diabetes. Fat-free yogurt is a much content of milk sugar and causes sugar spike followed by insulin spike.

Yogurt companies are not keen on sharing this information with consumers. A notable case study is of Greek yogurt heavily promoted by Whole Foods, which was the subject of a class action suit. I reproduce some text from a front-page article in New York Post of August 30, 2014 on the subject entitled " Bittersweet  Suit Hits Whole Foods"

 

Bittersweet  Suit Hits Whole Foods
New York Post August 30, 2014

 

 

The suits claim company officials were aware the labels didn't accurately report the sugar content in the subject Greek yogurt. It listed 2 grams per serving. A Consumer Reports analysis revealed it had 11.4 grams on average. It's further charged that even with the awareness of the difference, the product was not removed from shelves and continued to sell.

 

Sweet little lies: Class action alleges Whole Foods not truthful

The suits claim company officials were aware the labels didn't accurately report the sugar content in the subject Greek yogurt. It listed 2 grams per serving. A Consumer Reports analysis revealed it had 11.4 grams on average. It's further charged that even with the awareness of the difference, the product was not removed from shelves and continued to sell.

On behalf of Raymond Chandler of The Law Office of Raymond Chandler posted inConsumer Fraud on Friday, August 15, 2014.

California consumers should be able to trust the ingredient information provided to them by a label, manufacturer or store. When a discrepancy is alleged, it is usually a big business against whom the claims are made. It may take a team approach, but the average person can effect a change through a class action lawsuit. False and misleading advertising and other deceptive practices are not acceptable, are illegal and deserving of a bright spotlight.

Notable class actions recently reported are two lawsuits filed against Whole Foods Market. It's alleged the store brand of yogurt was being sold containing six times the amount of sugar listed on the label. Reports are both may represent up to 35,000 plaintiffs who purchased the product between August of 2008 and today.

The suits claim company officials were aware the labels didn't accurately report the sugar content in the subject Greek yogurt. It listed 2 grams per serving. A Consumer Reports analysis revealed it had 11.4 grams on average. It's further charged that even with the awareness of the difference, the product was not removed from shelves and continued to sell.

Court documents show the company allegedly had conscious intent to attract consumers to the product by falsely stating the lower sugar content. The company's focus is on healthy and organic products, purportedly with store brand labels verified by an in-house registered dietician. The suits claim the inaccurate label gave the company an unfair competitive advantage and justified higher prices for the product.

A $100 per-plaintiff penalty is sought. A company spokesperson wasn't able to comment on the litigation, but reported they are investigating why the test results were different.

From an individual's perspective, any loss suffered is minimal. Formulating a committed approach to seek justice and correct harm through a combined effort is a sound means to protect consumer rights. When a questionable situation comes up, an experienced eye can review the facts and determine how best to proceed.
