MINNEAPOLIS — General Mills, Inc. has reformulated its Yoplait Original yogurt to include 50% of the Daily Value of calcium and vitamin D in every cup. Yoplait Original has 500 mg of calcium in each 6-oz serving, and vitamin D content has been increased to 200 international units per 6-oz serving from 80 I.U.s (20% Daily Value) previously.

“Your bones can begin to change as early as your 30s, and over time you can begin to experience bone loss,” said Katherine Brooking, M.S., R.D. “That’s why it’s so important to get enough calcium in your diet, as it helps to maintain strong bones. Along with calcium, vitamin D is also important to women’s health as it helps the body absorb calcium. Yoplait is the only leading yogurt with calcium and vitamin D in every single serving, and now with 50% of the Daily Value of calcium and vitamin D, Yoplait Original is an easy and great tasting way for women to get more of each every day.”

Yoplait Original is available in 25 flavors at a suggested retail price of 79c per 6-oz cup.
