FAQs

Q: What is special about The Greek Yoghurt Company’s Greek yoghurt?

A: Skinny Greek Yoghurt is our new 99% fat free Greek Yoghurt. The taste and creamy texture remains the same, only the fat content has changed.

 

Q: What is Classic Greek Yoghurt?

A: "Classic" Greek Yoghurt is the new name for our original Greek Yoghurt. You will see a new look at your local store. You now have a choice of "Skinny" Greek Yoghurt 99% or "Classic" Greek Yoghurt.

 

Q: Is the Skinny and Classic Greek yoghurt gluten free?

A: Yes. Our Greek Yoghurt is gluten free. It contains no wheat products, thickeners, gelatines, gum blends or stabilizers.

 

Q: Does Greek yoghurt have any health benefits?

A: Yes many! Yoghurt minimizes some digestive problems. Lactic acid cultures in yoghurt produce substances which actually prevent disease-causing bacteria from multiplying in the intestinal tract. Yoghurt can also be helpful in restoring the digestive tract to its normal condition after a course of antibiotics, which are liable to indiscriminately destroy all intestinal bacteria, both good and bad. It may also prevent some digestive tract problems and yeast infections.

 

Q: Are you lactose intolerant?

A: Sensitivity to lactose varies by person, but many people who experience discomfort from lactose can eat our Greek Yoghurt without any negative effects. This is because the lactose in our Greek yoghurt is naturally lower than standard yoghurt due to the straining techniques applied.

 

Q: Is it possible to freeze the Greek yoghurt after I have purchased it?

A: Yes. Our Greek yoghurt can be stored frozen for up to 3 months. Freezing does not affect the taste, consistency or cultures. The cultures become dormant when frozen, but when thawed, they will become live and active once again. There will be a few cultures that die, but there are so many billions in our product, that it is truly insignificant. Always defrost the yoghurt in the fridge and remember to stir before you serve.
