Trade Up Tuesday - Yearning for Yogurt


The yogurt aisle can be the most confusing section of the store. Do I look for calcium, fat, sugar? Instead of reading the labels of the more than 250 yogurts we carry, try using the NuVal score. NuVal scores weigh in on calcium, fat, added sugar, and even vitamin D, phosphorous and protein. Higher scores mean better nutrition! NuVal scores are right on the shelf price tag!

This week's Trade Up:
Yoplait Trix Yogurt NuVal=32
Food Club Light Vanilla Yogurt NuVal=99




Trix Strawberry Banana Bash Yogurt


Food Club Light Vanilla Yogurt - highest scoring yogurt!

What's your favorite yogurt? What is its NuVal score?

  1. Do you include high fructose corn syrup or aspartame in the ratings? I like this feature, and would love to be able to see the nutrition info and ingredients in the photos

    1. We are so glad you like it! Aspartame and high fructose corn syrup neither positively or negatively affect the score independently. The presence or lack of calories from sugar is what will raise or lower the NuVal score. We also really like your idea to include the ingredient deck. We will be sure to include that next week.
