Dairy Goodness - What is the role that yogurt plays within the diet?

As with all dairy products, yogurt naturally contains many nutrients essential to growth, development and maintenance of the human body. 

Yogurt can be given to children as part of a weaning diet, included in packed lunches, eaten as a dessert, used in the cooking of sweet and savoury dishes or just as a quick nutritious snack.

As with milk, yogurt has been associated with many health benefits and provides an important and popular addition to the diet.

Why have you reduced the weight of Müllerlight standard yogurt?

We relaunched Müllerlight on 1st August 2011, which included a new design and product range. Due to increasing costs of production (energy, raw materials, and fuel) during the process we were unable to reduce our wholesale price. The final selling price is entirely determined by retailers.

Can I freeze Müller Yogurt?

Our yogurt is best enjoyed straight from the fridge. It is not recommended that you freeze and fully defrost yogurt as it leads to a poorer yogurt quality. However our consumers have told us that when decanted into suitable containers and frozen, our Müller yogurts make a delicious frozen dessert.

What do you mean when you say 'contains a source of Phenylalanine'?

Phenylalanine is an amino acid found naturally within protein rich foods such as meat, cheese and milk and is one of the main building blocks of all proteins. Where aspartame (a sweetener) is used as an ingredient it will contain Phenylalanine. Whilst this ingredient presents no issues for the majority of our customers, sufferers of Phenylketonuria (PKU) (around 0.01% of the population) need this information to avoid this ingredient.
