Thanks for the link collection Andreas, great resource!

I don’t eat sweetened yoghurt at all, but I just found it strange that the GI of sweetened and unsweetened yoghurt are so similar. I can see that if the lactose is indeed broken down into galactose and glucose in the final product (despite being listed as lactose) this would make the GI higher. I often use foodcomp.dk and it lists yoghurt (here http://www.foodcomp.dk/v7/fvdb_details.asp?FoodId=0333) as having 2.5 g lactose and 3.8 g total carbohydrate. No glucose listed, though, so that doesn’t really fit with your assumption…

For me, it’s dangerous to speculate that the FP is lower than what a strict analysis and calculation tells you, because I’m not ever well enough that I can easily tell if I tolerate individual foods or not (I can only slowly guess what my major triggers are)
