Product Review: Oikos Organic Greek Nonfat Yogurt

Here we are again!  This is the second in a series of 5 reviews of Greek Nonfat Yogurt.  Obviously, this is my personal opinion.  I’ve tried Greek yogurt before and not liked it.  I found it very bitter and I didn’t like it at all.  However, I’m trying to lay off the artificial sweeteners, and Greek yogurt has more filling protein in it, so here I am.  I got strawberry in all five flavors to better compare.  First, the facts:

  • Type:  Oikos Organic Greek Nonfat Strawberry Yogurt
  • Serving Size:  1 container, 150g, 5.3oz
  • Nutrition Facts:  Calories-110 (Calories from Fat-0), Total Fat-0g (Saturated Fat-0g, Trans Fat-0g), Cholesterol-<5mg, Sodium-80mg, Total Carbohydrates 16g (Dietary Fiber 0g, Sugars 16g), Protein 13g
  • Ingredients:  Cultured Pasteurized Organic Nonfat Milk, Organic Strawberries, Organic Sugar, Pectin, Organic Natural Falor, Organic Elderberry Juice Concentrate (for color), Contains Life Active Cultures:  S. Thermophilus, L. Bulgaricus, L. Acidophilus, Bifidus, and L. Casel
  • Weight Watchers Points+:  3
  • Price:  $1.00 – Publix, on sale 10/$10

My Opinion:  It was okay.  It was way more bitter than yesterday’s Liberté.  I could eat it, but I didn’t particularly enjoy it.  Also, is it funny that the Organic yogurt has way more ingredients than the non-organic?  I know that’s not what organic means, but rather the image it evokes.  Perhaps because this one lists the live cultures and Liberté did not?  Anyway, for taste alone (since the price point is identical to Liberté), I’m putting this one at a distant second.

Objective Comparison of Facts:  40 less calories than Liberté, 30mg more of sodium, 4g less carbohydrates, and 2g more protein.  So far, it’s lowest in calories and carbs and highest in sodium and protein.

Order of Yumminess, Best to Worst:  1-Liberté, 2-Oikos Organic
