Yes, We Have Gallon Size

Q:  Do you package your yogurt in anything larger than quarts?

A: We package a one gallon container of yogurt. If your local store does not stock gallons, ask them to see if they can order some from their distributor for you.

"Amazing Yogurt, So Glad I Tried It"

White Mountain yogurt is me and my husband's favorite now. We love that it is savory and love the texture. I use it as my yogurt starter also. We eat a lot of plain yogurt. We are from Iran and like plain yogurt and savory and this is really close to what we had back home. Amazing yogurt, so glad I tried it when I saw it at Whole Foods...– Patricia

Yogurt Should Be A Daily, Staple Food

Q: How do I use your yogurt?

A:  Some of the more popular ways to use our yogurt is with breakfast granolas and fruits or blended with your favorite ingredients to make tasty smoothies. To get the most benefit from the high probiotics and other nutritional content, we advise using our yogurt the same way old-world cultures traditionally used the yogurt: as a daily dietary staple. Many recipes utilize the rich, ethnic flavor of Bulgarian yogurt for both entrees and side dishes. Of course, many prefer to just eat our yogurt straight out of the jar. Who can argue with that?

"They Love It!"

I wanted to take a moment to write to you about how much my family has enjoyed your product. I am a mother of two young children (9 month old and 2 year old), and I feel strongly that eating habits begin young. Alarmed by the processed and sugar filled 'kid yogurts' on the market, I picked up a jar of your yogurt and hoped my kids would eat it. They love it! It is perfect for topping off a bowl of healthy berries in the morning, or to add to a fruit and veggie filled smoothie for snack, or frozen in popsicle molds on hot days. I can't tell you how grateful I am to know my children are getting good wholesome, protein packed, healthy foods that they like.- Denaysa

"It Is My Favorite"

Thank you so much for continuing to make your product. It is my favorite. I only buy yours and one other's because I don't like the additives in the other brands. I think if I eat them often, they give me digestive issues. Plus, yours has the best flavor. Thanks for making the whole milk option. Now I mix with orange juice or water and juice - delicious. – Annette

Probiotic Superfood

Q: Why does yogurt keep longer than milk?

A: Milk sours, "goes bad" or makes yogurt due to bacterial action. The key is what kind of bacteria get the upper hand during these processes and end up in the majority. When you make yogurt you are creating a milk product with a chosen bacteria population that is beneficial to human consumption. When plain milk sits in your fridge or on the shelf at the store any spoilage causing bacteria that is in it will begin to multiply. Pasteurization only kills a certain percentage of bacteria. Yogurt is milk that has been pasteurized to kill off most of the unwanted bacteria, then inoculated with beneficial bacteria and allowed to incubate at a bacteria-friendly temperature. The beneficial bacteria take over and fill all available living room and use up the food supply so even if alien bacteria (spoilage causing) were introduced they could not survive. Traditional yogurt also has a high acid content, which many spoilage-causing bacteria cannot survive in.

Only 2 Ingredients!

Q:  I opened a jar and it was runny, why is that?

A: We do not add thickeners (such as dried milk solids) or stabilizers (such as gums or pectin) to our yogurts. These ingredients are used by other manufacturers as an aid to make a consistent yogurt, hiding yogurt that didn’t make or product that has a low probiotic count. Our nonfat yogurt is generally thinner, as there is less fat to help the yogurt congeal. If you are not satisfied, please return it to the store for exchange or refund. Thin or runny yogurt can happen at any time of year and can be a result of under-incubation, rough handling during shipping, or storage temperatures. 100% natural, no-additive yogurt is going to be runny when compared to artificially thickened yogurt. Temperature, fat content and amount and type of culture all contribute to the consistency of our yogurt. If the yogurt is thicker than liquid milk, then it is yogurt and you are getting the benefits of live culture.
