1 Siggi's = Better Than the Rest...



I recently noticed a new brand of yogurt floating around Stop & Shop and a few local health food stores.  Yesterday, after weeks of curiosity, I decided that it was time to give it a whirl and with that I tossed it into my cart. I tried it today - consensus - Siggi's yogurt could be the king of all "healthy" yogurts.  When it comes to taste....ehhh, I'll just say it is an acquired taste, especially if what you are used to is Dannon's Light n' Fit. The vanilla flavor, which is what I tasted today is semi-sweet and slightly bitter with deep vanilla undertones.  It tastes (and is) REAL and NATURAL, which is what we should be going for when it comes to all of our food. With that said, I had no problem finishing the 6 oz container. The texture is rich and thick and impressively, the vanilla clearly has vanilla beans whipped in. Yes, real vanilla beans! 


Siggi's is an Icelandic style yogurt that is low in fat and high in protein.  It is sweetened with agave nectar (low glycemic index sweetener) and is low in carbs and sugar, making it a great treat for anyone on a low carb diet. The yogurt container is adorable and it comes adorned with an endless list of reasons to buy this brand over any other brand...

-All natural
-Milk from grass fed cows
-No aspartame
-No sucralose
-No gelatin
-No artificial colorings
-No preservatives
-No high fructose corn syrup
-No rBGH (which means the milk has been produced without the use of recombinant bovine growth hormone

Okay, now we know what Siggi's does not have. Here is what it DOES HAVE...

A plethora of live cultures, and to be exact:

-B. Lactic, L. Acidophilus
-L. Delbrueckii Subsp. Bulgaricus
-L. Delbrueckii Subsp. Lactis
-S. Thermophilus

This yogurt, because of all the live active cultures is a must for anyone taking antibiotics. The active cultures keep the antibiotics from killing the good bacteria that your body needs and loves :)

Siggi's takes healthy yogurt to a whole new level. Do you have a favorite yogurt that you use for baking, mixing or just plain eating? What do you love about it?

Thanks so much for stopping by FFC and leaving such a sweet comment! I love strained yogurt...the thicker the better. I have never had this one, but I love vanilla bean & tart yogurt so I would probably love this! Thanks for sharing this with us!
