If the label reads that it contains active yogurt culture it means that it still contains bacterial culture in it. Check whether they are stabilized with gelatin or starch then it will have no positive impact on the health.

Whole milk yogurt should contain 3.25 % – 4% butterfat but the amount it varies. If you are figure conscious and looking from low calorie dessert than have yogurts made from skimmed milk which generally contains 0.5% -2 % of butterfat.
