Why is that sick, other than if you are a vegetarian I guess?

Bottom line... assume any product can have anything in it, unless you grew it yourself.

gar1013: Müller frütUp's lemon yogurt is the best freaking yogurt IN THE WORLD.  Okay, maybe a slight exaggeration, but it's basically about the best yogurt you're going to get in the US that any supermarket appears to be willing to stock.

If you have an issue with the Talapia, then you probably shouldn't drink many forms of alcohol given some of the things they use as fining agents to get the chunks out.

As for the people saying that "cheap yogurt contains gelatin", you know nothing of this delicious product, as it has a delicious fruit gelatin on top that you mix with the delightful yogurt underneath.



Where do I start?

1. The fine yogurts I quoted earlier are present in my supermarket. It's a friggin' Safeway. It's not a specialty shop. They're all over the place.

2. If you're drinking finings, you're an idiot. I brew. I've yet to chug a bottle of finings. Finings are used not to "get the chunks out", but to attract particulate matter, so that the resulting precipitate can be more easily strained out. Irish moss, isinglass, Bentonite - ideally, you consume none of that, except possibly in trace amounts. Luckily, the only animal product there is isinglass. Irish moss is just that, and Bentonite is a fine clay. There are other finings out there - you can use everything from egg whites to copper sulfate - but, again, you're not consuming them, as the finings are there specifically to be removed from the product. Unlike the gelatin in your yogurt.

3. Cheap yogurt contains gelatin. Your yogurt, the "fine" brand about which you're trumpeting, is cheap yogurt - you just don't know it. The product info for the product in the article(http://mullerquaker.com/products/mullerfrutup/mango# ) indicates that it contains not just gelatin, but both milk protein and whey protein concentrates (added back into gelatin-loaded lowfat yogurt to up the protein content, because there's no friggin' milk left in it), modified food starch (another thickener), natural flavors, fatty acid esters, and beta carotene. Oh, and it's loaded with water - that's the second ingredient in the list - because that's what's thickening the "yogurt", a mixture of water, starch, and gelatin, blended into a small quantity of reduced fat yogurt.

That yogurt is junk, served up by Quaker Foods (well, a company bought out by Quaker Foods), meant to hop onto the recent interest in yogurt. Of course it tastes good - it's loaded with sugar, dextrose, acids, and flavors - but it's not much different than Yoplait.

And I'm sure it tasted fine until she found out what was in it...

The properties of food are apparently non-transitive, but are commutative.

So if your food eats crap, it is still good, because the crap ceases to be crap and becomes flesh, fish or fowl, but if your food touches crap, it is not good and you should throw it to the pigs. And then eat the pigs.

This isn't unusual, but if you don't know that gelatin can come from animal products, it can be surprising to see that your morning fruit yogurt contains Tilapia (Fish) in it.

In other words, "if you're an idiot, this might be news to you. Otherwise, we are just wasting bits here."

If you knew what tilapia ate, you'd never eat them again.

If your yogurt has gelatin in it, you really do like the cheap stuff.

Read the damn labels if you're that picky.  And yes, gelatin is usually an animal protein.

If you're buying yogurt with gelatin, either the yogurt is crappy or the fruit goop is crappy.
