PRODUCT REVIEW: Chobani Greek Yogurt


Probiotics with panache: Here, we added
fresh blueberries to Chobani’s blue-
berry yogurt (the Chobani fruit is on the
bottom).
  Chobani Greek Yogurt is a welcome newcomer to the yogurt case. More like sour cream than American-style yogurt, it will overcome resistance from some people who don’t care for the tart tanginess of traditional yogurts. And, packed with probiotic cultures, it will help those who have digestive problems. In 0%, lowfat, full fat plain yogurt, and in six 0% flavored varieties, the line is certified kosher, all natural, rBGH-free and gluten-free.

“Chobani” means shepherd in Turkish. This lovely yogurt line has been carefully shepherded by an emigré whose family makes yogurt and feta in Turkey. Using the same classic techniques to produce thick, triple-strained yogurt—known as Greek-style in the U.S.—Chobani Greek Yogurt is the thickest and most sour cream-like line of Greek-style yogurt we have found to date. People who should eat more yogurt or calcium in general, but don’t like the consistency or tanginess of most yogurts, may be very happy with Chobani.

Chobani is a very rich and ultra-creamy way to get your probiotics and protein—or simply to enjoy a delicious cup of yogurt. All-natural and low in sugar (the plain nonfat is 100 calories a serving and the fruit flavors are 140 calories), the line is made with hormone-free milk. It contains live and active cultures as well as probiotic cultures (see our Probiotics Glossary for the difference). And, at 14g of protein per 6-ounce serving, it has two times the amount of protein as traditional American yogurts. Read the full review on TheNibble.com.
