Yogurt has a long history (since about 2000 BC) as a nutritious
and healthy food.
By fermenting the milk with yogurt culture, people created
a tasty food that
could be stored for a long time.
Since it is fermented, yogurt is a very stable product,
not prone to bacterial
Saugeen Country Dairy we make yogurt from cow's milk, bacterial
culture and nothing else.
Commercial dairies nowadays often manufacture yogurt with milk
milk protein, skim milk powder, stabilizers and
gelatin. We strongly believe that yogurt made from pure milk straight
from the cow is the best. The shorter the list of ingredients the
more natural and better tasting the food will be.
We do not homogenize the
milk. This is a process that changes the lipids to prevent the
milk from separating. Cream will rise to the top in milk that is
not homogenized. Non-homogenized milk products are easier to digest.
do not homogenize the milk there is often a thin layer of cream
top of the yogurt.
We are a small company and
we prefer to focus on just a few products, rather than having a
whole line of yogurts.
We cannot make low fat yogurt, because we would have to add extra
skim milk powder.
Plain yogurt is a very versatile product. You can add the fruit
or cereal of your choice or add the right amount of sugar.
When you buy this yogurt you help us care for the land and our
animals in a responsible way.
