This week, Eco-Friendly Friday has a yogurt theme. Part One is all about Nancy’s Yogurt – the Organic Whole Milk in “Plain” flavor. Part Two (You Can Make Your Own Organic Yogurt in a Crockpot) can be seen BY CLICKING HERE.
My family LOVES yogurt. We ended up trying Nancy’s Yogurt brand this week on accident — I sent my husband to the store with a grocery list, and it is funny how he has no sense of brand loyalty and often brings home things we have never eaten before. It was a good thing, though, because we tried it, and we really like it. I will definitely purchase it again.
Some fun facts about Nancy’s Organic Whole Milk Yogurt (taken from their website):
*Supporting organic sustainable farming practices
*Fully cultured with casei, rhamnosus, acidophilus, bifidum, thermophilus, and bulgaricus
*Free of cane sugar and stabilizers
*Billions of healthy bacteria in every teaspoon, aiding in greater calcium absorption and better digestion
*Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth
And some fun facts from me:
*Nice, thick texture
*Plain flavor by itself tastes very “yogurty” — my own term meaning…in a good way, it has a strong yogurt flavor
*Perfect for sweetening with honey, fruit, jam to create your own custom flavor
*My family likes it best when it has above items added in to sweeten and flavor the yogurt
Nancy’s Yogurt offers a whole line of yogurt varieties including nonfat, lowfat, soy, and fruit-on-top. They also produce other dairy items (sour cream, cottage cheese, cream cheese) that I am now interested in trying. Look for them in your natural foods stores and organic sections of your grocery store.
Added Nancy’s Bonus: Their strong commitment to Recycling and the fact that their plastic containers do not contain estrogen chemicals. Here you go, straight from their website:
We remain committed to the high-quality HDPE #2 container for many reasons:
*It is absolutely free of all chemical estrogens.
*It is one of the few plastics really being recycled in many communities.
*It does not migrate into foods.
*It is an expensive, sturdy container that gets re-used many times, so much that it has earned the beloved nickname “Nancyware”.
