Default Sugar in Low Fat Plain Yogurt

I see where Kroger Low Fat Plain Yogurt contains 16g of sugar. I never noticed and I eat it daily alongside cottage cheese and frozen fruit. Is this bad sugar? How do I know?
Thank s

I don't know about good/bad sugar. Milk (yogurt is fermented milk) has sugar in in naturally - lactose is sugar. Then, fruit flavor usually adds sugar because there's natural sugar in berries (for example) and also some sugar syrup, although you can't know how much.

If you had plain yogurt with just fresh berries mixed in, it would have sugar from the milk and the berries.

There are so many good things in plain yogurt:

Thanks Kathy. I guess I will not worry about the 16g of sugar in the yogurt. I stay away from the flavored varieties.
Thanks again for the quick response.

Products that say " low fat " or " no fat " normally aren't very good for you.

Reason is because they add sugar to it...... otherwise it wouldn't tast good. Even skim milk..... full of sugar. Some labels will show sugar but most will just hide it under carbs.

Each to their own but I don't buy anything fat free. I am better off eating healthy fats vs eating processed sugars.

Fat is very important, it's not your enemy.

There is nothing to worry, lots of food or fruits which we consumes contains lots of sugar. The yogurt is good for health.

Thanks for sharing this information.Also It depends on your diet. If you have a low dairy/fatty intake, then it would be best if you had something a bit unhealthier. If you have a lot of dairy in your system, then this yoghurt is best for you. If you are 50/50, then the best approach is to have a semi fattening yoghurt to suit your dietry requirements.
Hope this heps
