Why won't they leave yogurt alone?

Alex Halsey | Aug 3, 2005 06:09 PM

So I stopped buying Stonyfield Farm yogurt because they put something called inulin, or something like that, in their yogurt. Something to do with fiber, blah blah blah.

So I try another organic brand (I'm in NYC): Horizon. Tastes good, but it has something called NutraFlora (tm) in it, which the carton says is supposed to increase calcium absorption.

I've previously bought Emmi brand yogurt and Sky Top Farms, which are both delicious, but they're kind of pricy. But I'm beginning to think that's what I'll have to pay for a yogurt whose sole ingredient is: yogurt.

Why do food manufacturers do this?
