Chobani is one of our favorite brands of Greek yogurt. I always put a big spoonful of it on my oatmeal in the a.m. to boost the protein of my breakfast to help keep me satisfied longer. I also find that having Greek yogurt with fresh or dried fruit makes one of the most satisfying snacks.
We love how much passion and pride everyone we’ve met from Chobani has for the yogurt they make. And rightly so—they’re Greek yogurt is as delicious as it is nutritious.
We’re friends with Nicki Briggs, MS, RD, the Director of Communications at Chobani. As the in-house Registered Dietitian, Nicki is in charge of spreading Greek yogurt nutrition love. (Check out some of her videos in the Chobani Kitchen where she shows you how to whip up great tasting and healthy dishes with Chobani Greek yogurt.)
Greek yogurts are superfoods in our book because they are so nutritious. And for some that may not know, “Greek” yogurt doesn’t mean it comes from Greece, it just describes how it’s made. Unlike other yogurt, Greek yogurt is strained, which makes it thicker and richer tasting, but it also means the yogurt generally has more protein.
Chobani’s centuries-old straining technique creates yogurt that has two times more protein than regular yogurt, and less sodium, sugar and carbohydrates in general. Their plain yogurts are made from two ingredients: milk and live active cultures. For their flavored varieties, they add fruit and evaporated cane juice.
Chobani yogurt is also….
· All natural. (It has no preservatives or artificial flavors.)
· Free of synthetic growth hormones. (Milk from cows not treated with rBST)
· Contains 5 live & active cultures, including 3 probiotics.
· Made with real fruit.
· A good source of bone-building calcium.
· Gluten-Free and Kosher-Certified.
· Safe for people with corn, nut and soy allergies.
Chobani created Champions as the first Greek yogurt for children. Champions comes in two yummy flavors that your kids will love, VeryBerry and Honey-Nana. In addition to their traditional yogurt cups, I also buy the larger, 16 oz and 32 oz containers that I use to make healthier baked goods, dips and sauces.
