Cascade Fresh Plain Yogurt Review

Cascade Fresh  Fat Free YogurtPlain yogurt is a staple in my refrigerator - it's packed with protein and calcium, and the fat-free kind has a reasonable number of calories. I usually buy Dannon All Natural Nonfat Plain Yogurt, but since I was in the organic/natural foods section of the grocery store when I decided I needed yogurt, I decided to look around for a suitable replacement. My eyes fell on Cascade Fresh Fat Free Yogurt, with its appealing blue/ green color scheme and mountain and milk bottle design on the front. It didn't hurt that each yogurt was only $0.79, the same price as my Dannon yogurt and less expensive than other all-natural varieties. I threw a couple in my basket and marched up to the cash register to buy my yogurt.

Before starting in on the yogurt, I examined the package. In doing so, I discovered that Cascade Fresh has 8 live active cultures and the ingredient list is refreshingly short, containing only Grade A pasteurized nonfat milk, pectin, and active cultures. As for taste, I found this to be much creamier than some other nonfat plain yogurts. As I do with all of my unsweetened yogurt, I did add some Splenda, which made for a heavenly dairy dessert. I liked the thickness of the yogurt too - much thicker than Dannon Light 'n Fit, but not as thick as Greek yogurt.

Each 6 ounce cup of Cascade Fresh Plain Yogurt provides 80 calories, no fat, 10 grams of protein and 13 grams of sugar but no fiber. There is also 10% of the RDA for potassium (410 mg) and 25% of the RDA for calcium (more details at CascadeFresh.com).

Given the taste, price, and nutrition, I may just have to add this into my yogurt lineup.
