Product Review: Oikos Greek Yogurt

A few weeks back, Kristina, from Stonyfield Farm, contacted me to see if I would be interested in sampling Oikos Organic Greek Yogurt.  She sent me a package right out.  Thanks Kristina!


Some information on Kristina about Oikos:

Stonyfield Farm makes Oikos Organic Greek yogurt which can be used in a variety of ways while cooking – in baking, as a substitute for sour cream and mayonnaise, in dips and sauces and to create tasty low-fat dishes. Greek yogurt is strained, making it thicker and more versatile in recipes than regular yogurt. Our Oikos Greek yogurt contains no gluten- it’s certified gluten free! It’s also organic, which means it’s made without artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners, and it’s made from organic milk produced without the use of toxic persistent pesticides, chemical fertilizers, antibiotics, or artificial growth hormones (rBST). We feel that organic is not only better for you, but better for the planet as well.

I have sampled all of the 5.3 oz Oikos flavors, which include: Strawberry, Honey, Vanilla, Blueberry and Plain.  I love the thick, creaminess of the yogurt.  I also love the nutritional stats – 13g of protein per 5.3 oz cup!  I have to say that I think that Strawberry is my favorite, followed by Blueberry.  I buy the large 16 oz container of plain yogurt and use it in place of sour cream, on top of fruit, cereal or waffles or in cakes & muffins to moisten them up.

I love to support companies that either label their products “gluten-free” or certify that they are “gluten-free”.  It not only makes me feel more at ease, but makes my life that much easier.  Thank you Stonyfield Farm.
