LONDONDERRY, N.H., Feb. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Stonyfield, the leading organic yogurt maker, is introducing three new products aimed at providing customers more ways to enjoy the delicious flavor and nutritional richness of organic whole milk yogurt. With a new line of 100% grassfed yogurts and new whole milk offerings for already popular Stonyfield Greek and Pouch lines, consumers have even more reasons to reach for yogurt.
"During Stonyfield's first years, plain, simple, whole-milk yogurt was all that we made. In the 90s, diet fads led consumers to fear fat," said Ana Milicevic, Brand Manager from Stonyfield. "But that simply wasn't the whole story. Since whole milk provides a wealth of benefits –and tastes great – we're excited to satisfy an increased demand and return to our roots."
"Organic whole milk yogurt is an incredibly satisfying, traditional food - something I think many Americans are starting to embrace," says Drew Ramsey, MD, assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Columbia University and one of psychiatry's leading proponents of using dietary changes to help balance moods, sharpen brain function and improve mental health. "Plus, it's a satisfying way to get important nutrients like protein and calcium."
The Next Chapter: Grassfed Yogurt
Stonyfield's new organic 100% Grassfed Whole Milk yogurt begins in the pasture, with milk from cows who graze exclusively on grass. Rich and creamy and filled with all the delicious, nutritional qualities of full fat dairy, this cup of yogurt is the perfect choice for a whole breakfast or snack.
Stonyfield is proud to be sourcing its organic 100% grassfed whole milk from Maple Hill Creamery, another company passionate about producing milk in a way that is good for the planet, good for the cows and good for people.
Maple Hill Creamery cows are 100% grassfed, meaning they eat all grass, all the time (no grain, no corn) throughout the year (even in winter!) to produce whole milk with a rich, unique taste. In collaboration, Stonyfield and Maple Hill Creamery seek to make organic 100% grassfed yogurt accessible on a national level to more people than ever before.
To help consumers identify 100% grassfed vs. other varieties of grassfed (supplemented with corn or grain), Stonyfield has achieved independent Pennsylvania Certified Organic (PCO) accreditation, noted right on the label of every yogurt cup. Stonyfield Organic 100% Grassfed Whole Milk Yogurt is currently available at Whole Foods Markets nationwide in 6oz Vanilla, Strawberry, Blueberry and Plain cups as well as 24oz. Plain and Vanilla.
The Plot Thickens with Whole Milk Greek
Adding to its Greek nonfat yogurt family, Stonyfield's Whole Milk Greek delivers a rich, creamy taste that only comes from full-fat dairy. The yogurt is packed with calcium and protein and new fruit-filled sidecars allow for flavor personalization. Available at national retailers in 5.3oz cups of Plain, Strawberry, Vanilla, Blueberry, Honey and Cherry, Stonyfield will also offer Whole Milk Greek in quarts of Plain and Vanilla – perfect for families or recipe creation.
A Conveniently Packaged Ending
The whole story concludes with a solution for bringing whole milk goodness on the go – with the introduction of Stonyfield Organic Whole Milk Pouches. The entire family will love being able to grab a convenient, hand-held pouch for a delicious, satisfying snack on the go. Stonyfield Whole Milk Pouches are available nationwide in Pear Spinach Mango, Strawberry Beet Berry, Vanilla and Blueberry – all available in single serve pouches. Additionally, each flavor except blueberry is offered in a 4-pack as well.
As the leading organic yogurt maker, Stonyfield takes care with everything it puts into its yogurts and everything it keeps out. By saying no to toxic persistent pesticides, artificial hormones, antibiotics and GMOs, Stonyfield has been saying yes to delicious, healthy food for more than 30 years. And, as a leader in sustainability, Stonyfield is always looking for more innovative ways to do business that are better for the planet. In 2014, Stonyfield launched Stonyfield Source Map as part of an effort to promote transparency in the food system and to educate consumers about the unique nature of organic farming. Details about how and where many of the ingredients in Stonyfield's Whole Milk yogurts are grown can be found on the Source Map website.
