General Mill’s brand, Yoplait, has responded to consumer health concerns by changing the ingredients in its yogurt products. Yoplait has already made important changes to its products by getting rid of rbGH-treated cow’s milk and high-fructose corn syrup from its yogurt, and now Yoplait plans to eliminate the controversial artificial sweetener aspartame from its Yoplait light yogurt, as was requested in another ForceChange petition (http://forcechange.com/71266/make-yogurt-a-healthy-choice-for-americans/).
