1-Spoon Rating | PoorYogurt brands in this lowest category resemble junk food. These brands offer versions with ingredient lists that include artificial colors and flavors, thickeners, preservatives, carrageenan and other unhealthy and unnecessary additives. However, while the brand may score very poorly, individual products may be fairly healthy, such as Danone’s plain yogurt.
