Can anyone explain to me in simple terms why probiotic yoghurt is allowed in stage 1.

I’m still on stage 1 and would love some yoghurt but the minimum sugar I can find per 100g is 7g, which is way higher than lots of foods on the stage 1 ‘banned’ list (like strawberries etc). Half a medium sized pot would have the sugar of a banana.

even the lowest sugar versions have an orange stamp for sugar content in our UK supermarkets which means ‘caution’.

Is the thinking here just that the benefits of the probiotic element outweighs the negative impact of taking on a fair amount of sugar?

I’m finding it hard to know why certain things are allowed when they seem to contain way more sugar than things that aren’t allowed.

Thanks in advance for any advice.
