What gives Oikos® Greek yogurt its incredibly rich, creamy texture?
It all starts with simple, delicious ingredients.
Are you wondering what makes Greek yogurt different from regular yogurt? We make
our Greek yogurt with a centuries-old authentic straining method that removes the
whey (liquid) from the yogurt. Called "yiaourti" in Greece, Greek yogurt is thick
and creamy, and its production requires about three times the amount of milk used
to make regular yogurt.
Oikos is the Greek word for house. It’s also the root word for ecology.
We think it’s a great name for our Greek yogurt because it reminds us of a time
when people’s homes were intimately connected with nature and most foods came from
household gardens and family herds.
The people who bring you Oikos are passionate: about food, about life, and especially
about Oikos. We believe that when it comes to food, you deserve the best. That's
why we put our hearts and souls into making Oikos. Our goal is simple: We want you
to reward yourself every day with authentic, artisan Greek yogurt the way it was
meant to be. Is Oikos possibly the best yogurt in the world? Try just one spoonful
of our creamy-thick yogurt and see for yourself.
