How we rate yoghurt

Our review compares yoghurts on customer satisfaction, so you can find out what other Aussies think about the compared brands before you go ahead with a purchase. Think of it as like asking hundreds of your closest mates which yoghurt they think is best!

Canstar Blue surveyed 2,129 Australians for their feedback on the yoghurt(s) they’ve purchased and eaten in the last three months.

  • The outcomes reported in these ratings are measured via accredited research panels managed by Qualtrics.

Respondents rate their satisfaction with their yoghurt brand(s) from zero to ten, where zero is extremely dissatisfied and ten is extremely satisfied. Brand satisfaction was rated by respondents on the following criteria:
  • Overall satisfaction: measures consumer satisfaction with a yoghurt brand as an individual score NOT a combined total of all criteria.
  • Taste: the yoghurt tasted authentic, and matched the flavour description of the packaging (i.e. berries, etc.).
  • Texture & consistency: the yoghurt had a smooth and creamy consistency, suited to its type (i.e. full cream had a rich, thick texture, etc.).
  • Value for money: the cost is reasonable for the quality and quantity of the yoghurt.
  • Packaging convenience: the yoghurt was packaged in a way that was easy to open, access and store, or provided accessories that made it convenient to consumer (i.e. a spoon, packaged in a pouch, had a re-sealable lid, etc.).
  • Variety & range: the yoghurt brand had a wide variety of flavours and container sizes available to purchase.

The winning brand is the one that receives the highest Overall satisfaction rating once all the scores from the Overall satisfaction criteria are combined and averaged.

  • Overall satisfaction is asked as a specific question and represents an individual measure, not a combined total of all criteria.
  • When we cannot determine a clear winner from the criteria for the Overall satisfaction rating, we will then look at the other criteria measured in the rating.
    • The brand with the highest number of five-star ratings within the supporting criteria will become the five-star recipient in overall satisfaction, and thus win the award. If a clear leader still cannot be determined from the supporting criteria, joint winners will be declared.

Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included, so not all brands available in the market have been compared in this survey. The brands rated in this survey are listed below in order of best overall satisfaction.

Is yoghurt healthy?

Yoghurt is part of one of the five essential food groups ─ dairy ─ with milk, cheese (and dairy-free alternatives such as fortified soy and rice milk) also included in this category. Dairy can be a great source of nutrients, including calcium, protein, vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin B12, iodine, and zinc, for healthy teeth, bones and muscles, according to health authorities. Australians are recommended to have at least two to three servings of dairy, but this depends on age and other factors.

Choosing reduced-fat versions of these may also be useful for weight loss since these still provide the same health benefits but contain fewer kilojoules. Of course, you will need to watch out for products that are high in calories, fats and added sugars. It’s also always a good idea to check the health star ratings on certain yoghurts.

Does yoghurt help with gut health?

Yoghurt is just one type of food that contributes towards a healthy gut, as it naturally contains probiotics, which are live microorganisms that work similarly to good bacteria found in the gut. According to some experts, this encourages good digestive health and helps reduce bad bacteria build-up in the gut.

Can you freeze yoghurt?

You can technically freeze yoghurt, but you might change the taste and consistency of the yoghurt as you defrost or reheat it, meaning it may not be the exact same as before you put in the freezer.
