The yogurt category was the only one to surpass the 5% sugar-reduction target in the first year, and Tedstone expressed hope there would be further reductions posted in next year's report.
As some states rightfully start to look at reducing sugar consumption from soft drinks, scientists underline another potential source of unneeded sugar: yogurt.
They found fewer than one in 10 of all products (9%) and only 2% of children's yoghurts were classed as low in sugar, and contained the level required to carry a green "traffic light" nutritional label which is considered a healthy choice.
Children's yoghurts typically contained 10.8g per 100g, the equivalent of more than two sugar cubes, the study found. Dessert yogurts had the highest amounts of sugar, 16.4 grams, which isn't too surprising.
This is particularly true of the organic yogurts analysed.
The NHS recommends that adults not exceed 30 grams of free sugar - defined as sugar added to or naturally found in foods - each day, while parents are encouraged not to give children under 4 foods with added sugar. In fact, studies have shown yogurt consumers have a lower risk of obesity.
Not all products are as healthy as consumers perceive them to be, researchers say.
As a mother she wondered, just how much sugar was she giving her daughter?
Chobani is suing right-wing radio host Alex Jones, accusing the conspiracy theorist of publishing false information about the company.
In order to see how much sugar yogurts have, a team of scientists analyzed the nutritional content of 900 yogurts and yogurt products, which were available from five major United Kingdom online supermarket chains in October/November 2016.
Moore suspects the amount of sugar in yogurt in the U.S.is about the same as in the United Kingdom. Yogurt is marketed as a healthy food, but a study published this week in the British Medical Journal is the latest reminder that not all yogurt is created equal. Moore advocates for more transparent food labeling, and changes from the yogurt industry itself.
"Items labelled organic are often thought of as the "healthiest" option, but they may be an unrecognised source of added sugars in many people's diet".
The researchers noted that the confusion over whether yoghurt is good for you stems over confusion over the difference between natural sugar and added sugar.
Sugar is often used as a sweetener to counteract the sourness of the lactic acid, which is produced by live cultures in yogurts.
