What is
Greek yogurt?

Dannon® Oikos® Greek yogurt is made using a traditional straining method that removes some of the whey (liquid) from the yogurt, leaving a creamier final product.

What does “traditional Greek manner” mean?

Though Oikos Greek yogurt is not produced in Greece, it is made according to the traditional Greek manner of production, which removes some of the whey through straining, leaving more of the milk solids.

What does Oikos Greek yogurt taste like?

Plain Oikos Greek yogurt has a rich, creamy taste with the tanginess of other plain yogurts. Our Oikos Greek yogurts, with flavors such as Strawberry, Blueberry, Black Cherry, or Peach, have a layer of fruit at the bottom of the cup and are topped with a layer of Plain Oikos Greek yogurt. Vanilla Oikos has a slightly sweet and mild vanilla flavor.

Why does Oikos Greek yogurt taste so different from other plain yogurt?

The difference in flavor results from some of the whey being strained out, leaving more of the milk solids. This gives Oikos Greek yogurt its thick texture. The thickness increases the intensity of the natural tart flavor. The taste also is influenced by the cultures used in the process.

Is Greek yogurt supposed to be this thick?

Yes! Oikos Greek yogurt has a creamy-thick texture due to the straining process.

How can your Oikos Greek yogurt be so much higher in protein than your regular yogurt?

Oikos Greek yogurt-with 11 to 15 g of protein per 5.3 oz. serving and 17 to 22 g per 8 oz. serving-is an excellent source of protein, while regular, non-Greek yogurt contains about 5 g of protein per 5.3 oz. Our straining process leaves more of the milk solids, which results in a denser product with a higher protein level than that of regular, non-Greek yogurt*.
*Oikos yogurt has 3 g saturated fat per 5.3 oz.
