    Hi, I absolutely love mullerlight yogurts but was shopping in Aldis this morning and saw their virtual fat free yoghurts. Can anyone tell me if these are free?

    i had similar issues with this i checked online and they were like 3 syns or something. im sure i was told at a meeting before that they were free tho. best not to risk it till u find out for sure. I love aldi's museli and wholegrain yogurts for 2 and a half syns. a bit steep but really tasty and filling :)

    Wow, they are 8 syns each. I would have thought these were free because they are virtually fat free. A warning to others - stick to mullerlight!!

    Calorie counting (also known as relentless self-denial)
    Hi guys... sorry, not sure if I'm allowed in here, but I'm a calorie counter who's admired the Slimming World diet from afar for a good while now! I was just wondering if anyone knows if Slimming World have a contract with Muller to recommend their yoghurts before other store-own brands or cheaper options? Do SW make money out of it?

    Just curious. I love Muller lights myself, but not sure why they're automatically less 'synful' than other generic types that contain similar ingredients.

    I copied this from the official SW websiite some time ago in answer to why Aldi wholegrain yogurts are now synned when they used to be free, I hope this may answer your Q as to what yogurts are free....

    In new guidelines issued by The Foods Standards Agency it’s advised that the wording ‘very low-fat’ on some currently Free Food yogurts and fromage frais is too vague and that it’s therefore replaced with the term ‘fat free’. As this claim can only be used where a product contains no more than 0.5g fat per 100g/ml we’ve amended our Free Food allowances which means that some yogurts and fromage frais products are no longer Free

    Free foods and syn values are usually detirmined by how much, fat, sugar and salt they have as well as how filling they are. I doubt SW has a contract with Muller - just nearly all their varieties are free so it's quicker to reccomend them that go trough ever own brand :p
