Actimel vs Natural (Live) Yoghurt
Another Danone product:
The ingredients in Actimel Original are: Yogurt (Skimmed milk, Skimmed milk concentrate, Yogurt cultures), Water, Skimmed milk, Dextrose, Stabiliser (pectin), L.casei imunitass® cultures, Flavouring, Sweeteners (aspartame, acesulfame K).
The ingredients in Forest Fruits Actimel are: Yogurt (Skimmed milk, cream, skimmed milk powder, yogurt cultures), Skimmed milk, Liquid sugar (sucrose 8.4%), Fruits of the forest 2.1% (strawberry, blueberry, blackberry, raspberry), Dextrose, Stabiliser (modified tapioca starch), Flavouring, L.casei imunitass® cultures.
The ingredients in Natural (Live) Yoghurt are: yoghurt!
Bottom line: Don’t have the original or flavoured versions of Actimel, if you are trying to follow The Harcombe Diet.
p.s. Danone have another registered trademark ® (there is one in Activia also). What is L.casei imunitass?! Do we need it in our bodies?!
p.p.s check out those sugars (dextrose) and sweeteners – even in the original version.
