Gluten-Free


Our gluten free products include our yogurts and our Sweet-Potato Pecan vegan tamales, which are made with NO wheat, rye, barley or oats.

Some people are so sensitive to gluten they have a reaction to glutamines, an amino acid component of gluten, and glutamates, which are a salt form of glutamines used in flavor enhancers such as MSG. These amino acids are found in almost all grains and legumes including corn and soybeans and many vegetables. These amino acids even show up in cow's milk because of the grain fed to the cattle. Even our gluten free products could cause an allergic reaction in those with this degree of sensitivity.

Although our facility also produces some food products made with ingredients that contain gluten (such as our vegan Wheat Roast and No-Meata Fajitas), we use an independent lab, Silliker, Inc., to test our products. All of our gluten free products show less than 5 ppm (parts per million) gluten, which is 1/4 the FDA maximum (20 ppm) for a gluten-free designation.

Probiotic Superfood

Up to 90 Billion Probiotics per Serving

Due to our traditional manufacturing process, our yogurt has the highest per-serving probiotic count of any national brand. White Mountain Foods' most recent yogurt analysis reported 400 million CFUs per gram of yogurt. That's 90 billion per one cup serving! Take note of the probiotic count of other yogurts on the market. You will be hard pressed to find one that matches ours.

Many doctors recommend our yogurt to their patients for digestive system support. Most yogurt is not intended to supply you with sufficient probiotics. Most yogurt is simply a curdled milk product similar to a soft cheese and any probiotics left in the final product are present in residual quantities only or are eliminated by heat treatment before final packaging.

I must admit, this is the first time that I have ever been so impressed by a product that I wanted to give a testimonial. We had the privilege of living in the beautiful country of Bulgaria for two and a half years. Because of this, we became quite accustomed to eating the yogurt produced there. Since being back for a little over a year we have tried many "Bulgarian" imitations but they all pale in comparison to yours. When I tasted it today for the first time, I was utterly amazed. The taste is very authentic. I was almost brought back to the country itself. Thank you so much for making this wonderful yogurt and giving us a taste of Bulgaria in America!! – John and Laura

"I created White Mountain Foods the way I lived my life. It was not about the money. It was and is about creating and sustaining right livelihood through honest and productive work that enhances individual and community life. Our marketing effort, or rather lack of it, attests to our focus on a “real" food versus “engineered” food. My heart was in it. I created delicious health food for a family dinner table. This is our core value." - founder, Reed Murray

Tart Yogurt

 

Q: Why is White Mountain Foods yogurt so tart?

A: The high level of beneficial bacteria present and the lengthy incubation period causes the tart flavor of our yogurt. Specifically, the bacteria consume lactose in the milk and produces lactic acid, hence the acidic tart flavor. Traditional yogurt is tart. The modern yogurt industry has altered yogurt to obtain a more marketable taste and consistency. Mild yogurt coupled with added sweeteners, stabilizers and thickeners have produced a much more widely acceptable tasting product. Modern yogurt has become more of a pudding or ice cream like dessert instead of a staple food product.

Today, mass market yogurt manufacturers, impatient with the slow and inconsistent natural process, speed the yogurt fermentation process up and standardize it by chemically manipulating milk, adding stabilizers, pH modifiers, mouth feel enhancers, and various thickening agents. White Mountain Foods Bulgarian Yogurt contains no thickeners, stabilizers, preservatives, or additives of any kind. We use two ingredients only: milk and culture.

"Yes, everyone testifies to the nutritional benefits of WM Yogurt. This is obvious....but I have worked as a chef/cook for about 35 years in some of the best fine dining facilities. For flavor, consistency, and authenticity...there is no comparison to White Mountain Yogurt. I have traveled extensively in India, spent time in Spain, and spent quite a bit of time in Eastern Europe.....authentic yogurt, I'm afraid to say, is not so easy to find internationally. We have the real deal here in Texas.....and it's readily available. There is a negative to White Mountain Yogurt though. Once one is accustomed to White Mountain Yogurt....none other will do. No (yes, none!) other yogurt has the flavor, the consistency, the authenticity, and most importantly...digestibility. The irony....yours is probably the easiest to produce with the least amount of ingredients….Thank you." – Don

Q: What makes your yogurt Bulgarian?

A: The Bulgarians have been making and eating yogurt for millennia. Many eastern European peoples are descendants of nomads who lived on the fermented milk of their domesticated animals. The Bulgarians were renowned for their longevity and studies attributed their health to regular consumption of yogurt. Bulgarian yogurt became popular as one of the original health foods in the early 20th century due to these studies. The beneficial bacteria found in the Bulgarians' traditional yogurt carry their name, L. Bulgaricus. This same beneficial bacteria forms the foundation of our yogurt. The use of traditional methods of inoculation, fermentation and the use of glass containers produce a yogurt virtually identical to the Bulgarian yogurt of Eastern Europe and many traditional yogurts from around the world including Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and the Mediterranean region.

An Austin original since 1980, the founding concept of White Mountain Foods is about supporting health, not how much money we can make. Our physiological condition and our consciousness are impacted by the food we eat. By reducing or eliminating specific foods that cause us harm and eliminating overly processed, additive and chemical laced, engineered-for-profit, nutritionally deficient foods, we can support and maintain our health, and reduce our discomfort and the need for medical help.
