A low-fat standby

Occasionally, when I invite friends for dinner, a guest will remind me (in a polite but insistent manner) that he or she is on a low-fat diet. Confidently, I reassure such individuals that my meal will not jeopardize their regimen. When I hang up the phone, though, I wring my hands.

Got culture? If so, more and more consumers are with you as a centuries-old staple, newly packaged in inventive new forms, becomes live and active at the top of the shopping list. Today's fans can drink their yogurt. Squeeze it out of a tube. Indulge in Key lime or white chocolate varieties. Choose nonfat or whole milk.
