Brand Alternatives

When it comes to yogurts, we all have our favorites! As we transition to our new dairy ingredient standards, you may find some products temporarily (or longer?) off sale. During this time, we would like to encourage you to try some new brands with similar (better?) taste, texture, and flavor.

 

Here is a quick chart to give you some ideas on where to look!

Brown Cow –Full fat, cream top
Flavored varieties  (maple, vanilla, etc.) and fruit on bottom varietiesNoosa – Full fat plus extra cream.Cream-Top Yogurt, Desert Style Yogurt.
Full fat, non-homogenized, so cream layer sits on top of the yogurt. Uses thickeners and stabilizers — tapioca starch, locust bean gum, carrageenan & pectin — to create a dense and creamy texture. Rich and creamy on sweet side
Dreaming Cow Full fat, cream top
OR
Maple Hill Full fat, cream top
OR
Kalona Full fat, cream top
OR
Strauss Full fat – blended thick and creamy
Cream-Top Yogurts, except Straus. Full fat, non-homogenized, so layer of cream at top. No stabilizers/thickeners thus thinner and more watery, sometimes referred to as European Style Yogurt. Cream top does not stay as intact or as distinct. Sometimes a bit of the cream layer gets stuck to the top of the lid. To enjoy the full creaminess & get all of the fat, scrape the cream off the top of the lid and mix into the yogurt thoroughly. All of these brands have fewer added sugars and thus are less sweet.
