If you see any fillers like corn starch or corn syrup listed on the ingredients label, it’s probably not the real deal. AUSTRALIANYOGURT (or Aussie yoghurt) is newer tomost stores, and one of the biggest brands in the U.S. is Noosa. Because it’s typically made with whole milk, it’s rich and creamy— you won’t be saving any calories here. It’s not quite as thick as Greek yogurt, but it’s not runny either. It’s often described as silky smooth and sweeter than other varieties of yogurt, thanks in part to the whole milk.
