Danino Greek Yogurt - Toronto Teacher Mom

Danino Greek Yogurt

Saturday, May 24, 2014

Last month, Danone launched the first ever Greek yogurt for kids called Danino Greek. As with most Greek yogurts, it contains two times the protein as regular stirred yogurt and are available in different flavours including: Grape, Banana Caramel and Yellow Fruit. These are not your typical yogurt flavours so I decided to opt in for a chance to try these yogurts with my kids. The only problem was being able to find them. I went to ValuMart, Longo's and McEwans and neither of these stores carry them. I did manage to find two flavours at Metro and brought home a package of grape and a package of yellow fruit.


Looking at the ingredients, I found they each contain yogurt as the main ingredient and a grape flavour preparation and yellow fruit preparation respectively as the second ingredient. Each preparation has sugar listed as either the first or second ingredient and each includes modified corn starch. While I could do without the latter, the amount of sugars per 100g of each flavour is 10g. This is a little bit less than some Greek yogurts I've seen but I would hope that Danone will consider reducing the amount of sugars even further and/or replacing sugars with a natural sweetener such as honey.


In terms of the flavours and texture, my kids both enjoyed the Greek yogurt and selected the grape flavour as their favourite. I preferred the refreshing taste of the yellow fruit flavour with its subtle peach notes. If you would like a chance to try them out for yourself, I have some product vouchers to give away. Simply leave a comment below telling me which flavour you'd like to try and fill out the Rafflecopter form for a chance to win 5 free product vouchers.
