Oikos® Greek yogurt is made using a traditional straining method that removes some of the whey (liquid) from the yogurt, leaving a creamier final product.

Frequently Asked Questions
The difference in flavor results from some of the whey being strained out, leaving more of the milk solids. This gives Oikos Greek yogurt its thick texture. The thickness increases the intensity of the tart flavor. The taste also is influenced by the cultures used in the process.
Yes! Oikos Greek yogurt has a creamy-thick texture due to the straining process.
Oikos Greek yogurt - with 11 to 15 g of protein per 5.3 oz. serving and 17 to 22 g per 6 oz. serving - is an excellent source of protein, while regular, non-Greek yogurt contains about 5 g of protein per 5.3 oz.* Our straining process leaves more of the milk solids, which results in a denser product with a higher protein level than that of regular, non-Greek yogurt.**
* Compared to Dannon® Plain Whole Milk Yogurt
**Oikos Traditional yogurt has 3 g saturated fat per 5.3 oz
Oikos is part of Danone North America. Our company’s mission is to bring health through food to as many people as possible.
Greek yogurt has about two times the protein vs. regular (non-Greek) yogurt. Protein (along with regular exercise) is important for building, maintaining, and repairing muscles. Plus, dairy protein contains all 9 essential amino acids the human body can’t produce on its own. Amino acids are the building blocks that we need to create our own proteins.
All our Greek Yogurts are a good source of protein and calcium, and our flavored Greek Yogurts are a good source of Vitamin D.
It takes three times as much milk to make the same amount of Greek yogurt as regular yogurt. We use a traditional straining method to make Oikos Greek Yogurt. This process removes some of the liquid whey from the product and results in a thicker and higher protein yogurt.
Yes, all Oikos Greek Yogurts are dairy. Oikos Greek Yogurt is made with milk; however, it usually contains less lactose vs. regular non strained yogurt.
No, Oikos Greek Yogurt does not contain probiotic cultures, but it does contain yogurt cultures: S. thermophilus & L. bulgaricus.
