LA FARGE, Wis., Sept. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Organic Valley has introduced convenient 6-ounce Grassmilk Yogurt Cups in four varieties: Strawberry, Wild Blueberry, Plain and Vanilla. The 100 percent grass-fed yogurt cups appeal to people looking for premium yogurt with extraordinary flavor, nutritional excellence and grab-and-go convenience.
Organic Valley's Grassmilk Yogurt cups are exceptional in flavor and quality. They feature cream-on-top, whole milk yogurt crafted from 100 percent grass-fed, non-homogenized organic Grassmilk milk, along with organic strawberries, organic wild blueberries, organic fair trade vanilla and live probiotic cultures.
Named a 2016 Top Trend by Whole Foods Magazine and the Winter Fancy Foods Show, 100 percent grass-fed dairy is going on! Good food enthusiasts understand that terroir can be a key factor for high-quality dairy, just as it is for vineyards and coffee estates. Grassmilk Yogurt's taste profile is a result of where the cows live, seasonality, and what they eat.
Nutritionally, the co-op's Grassmilk Yogurt flows with naturally-occurring calcium, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and omega-3s. Organic milk from 100 percent grass-fed cows has a more favorable fatty acid profile than milk from conventionally-fed cows. It is higher in omega-3 fatty acids and lower in omega-6 fatty acids. Minimally processed with nothing extra added and always organic there are no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. Organic Valley never uses antibiotics, synthetic hormones, toxic pesticides or GMOs.
"I'm always on the lookout for delicious and nutritious foods that are easy to serve and simple in terms of ingredients — and Organic Valley's Grassmilk Yogurt Cups are ideal," said Amelia Winslow, nutritionist, chef, busy mom and founder of Eating-Made-Easy.com. "Of course we all have many choices in the yogurt aisle, but I love that I now have a 100 percent grass-fed, organic, single-serve option that supports family farmers."
Since Organic Valley introduced its Grassmilk Yogurt in multi-serve tubs a year ago, the co-op has -established itself as the number one brand for 100 percent grass-fed dairy in the US*. The artisanal yogurt has won many accolades for its exceptional taste, because Organic Valley Grassmilk cows are 100 percent grass-fed, with no supplemental feed, grain or soybeans in their diet—just lush, fresh pasture and dried forages.
"Feeding our cows organic grass 100 percent of the time produces the highest quality milk and ensures our dairy cows lead longer, healthier lives—all while improving the health of the land," said Wisconsin Organic Valley farmer-owner Kevin Jahnke.
Starting in September, Organic Valley Grassmilk Yogurt cups will be available in natural food stores, food cooperatives and major grocery chains nationwide with a SRP of $1.69.
