I am on the color coded plan (Red1) and was told that the Activia Light was 1/2 dairy.
This was based on the dairy serving being 1 cup and it is 1/2 cup.

From reading old posts on yogurt I think there is a difference between whatever COD you go to,some are told it is a starch because of the fiber content and some are told it is a dairy.

Hope this helps a little.

Why is that? Why do you have to count it like this?

I personally eat only gelatine-free yogurts (I am vegetarian) but I am very curious...

I would say that it would be a dairy serving (or 1/2 a dairy because of the serving size.)

I would not say that it would be a starch, because you are not "keeping" the starches that are in it-the fiber. They pass through the system.

I've always been told to count yogurt as a dairy...never a starch.
