Have others crashed from yogurt? I bought some vanilla greek yogurt unintentionally, and did not know until I had a spoon full. Then I thought,mmmm I recall the taste; a little won't hurt. BUT I crashed and felt woozy, like a person with hypoglycemia. It's official. I am forever off sugar as well as grains and legumes. I am curious if others have faced this too.

I would guess that it was actually the insulinogenic nature of the yogurt more than the sugar. It'd be easy enough to test with plain yogurt. I get this if I eat cheese sometimes. If you're not used to it the insulin will outpace the glucagon and your blood sugar will dip down too far.

Since there's no such product in the market, I make my own, probiotic, lactose-free, goat yoghurt, usually twice a month (fermented for 20 hours). If I'm lazy to make my own, or if I'm between batches, I buy probiotic, lactose-free, cow yogurt off the shelf. But I never buy sweetened junk that pass as "yoghurt". These are not yoghurts, or if they are, they still have additives that they shouldn't have in them (e.g. tapioca, pectin and other thickeners, sugar, low quality pulp-less fruit juices etc).
Picture of how I eat my (bitter, since it's lactose-free) goat yoghurt: http://eugenia.queru.com/images2/goat-yogurt.jpg (I use raw & unfiltered local honey, nuts, seeds, berries or other fruits to sweeten it).
