Read the Ingredients, You May Be Unpleasantly Surprised
The yogurt pictured here not only has tapioca to thicken it, but it has E1442, too. Both are used to make the yogurt thicker and more pudding-like.
The first goats yogurt I began eating didn't have any thickening agents, and I loved them. Then I was given a yogurt that looked almost yellow instead of white. It had a different taste and texture. So I checked the ingredients. Tapioca and other starches. Now I don't buy a yogurt without carefully reading everything written on the label. I have to know all of the ingredients.
Just because a food is labeled "natural," doesn't mean that it really is. Check the ingredients before buying. Also compare the ingredients of similar foods. Be an informed consumer.
