US-based Stonyfield Organic has introduced a new line of 100% grass-fed yogurts and two other whole milk offerings for its Stonyfield Greek and Pouch lines.
“During Stonyfield’s first years, plain, simple, whole-milk yogurt was all that we made. In the 90s, diet fads led consumers to fear fat,” said Ana Milicevic, brand manager for Stonyfield. “But that simply wasn’t the whole story. Since whole milk provides a wealth of benefits – and tastes great – we’re excited to satisfy an increased demand and return to our roots.”
“Organic whole milk yogurt is an incredibly satisfying, traditional food – something I think many Americans are starting to embrace,” said Drew Ramsey, assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Columbia University and one of psychiatry’s leading proponents of using dietary changes to help balance moods, sharpen brain function and improve mental health. “Plus, it’s a satisfying way to get important nutrients like protein and calcium.”
Grass-fed whole milk yogurt
Stonyfield’s organic 100% grass-fed whole milk yogurt is made with milk from cows that graze exclusively on grass at Maple Hill Creamery in Stuyvesant, New York.
To help consumers identify 100% grass-fed over other varieties of grass-fed (supplemented with corn or grain) milk, Stonyfield has achieved independent Pennsylvania Certified Organic (PCO) accreditation.
It is available in 6oz cups in vanilla, strawberry, blueberry and plain variants; plain and vanilla are also available in 24oz cups.
Whole milk Greek
Adding to its Greek non-fat yogurt family, Stonyfield’s whole milk Greek yogurt is packed with calcium and protein and new fruit-filled compartments allow for flavour personalisation. Packed in 5.3oz cups, the product is available in plain, strawberry, vanilla, blueberry, honey and cherry flavours. Plain and vanilla flavours are also available in quart pots.
To enable consumers to enjoy whole milk goodness on the go, Stonyfield has added organic whole milk pouches in pear spinach mango, strawberry beet berry, and vanilla and blueberry flavours.
