  • OIKOS SuperGrains Greek Yogurt
    I recently received a sample of the Oikos SuperGrains Greek yogurt in Mixed Berries + Grains flavour and I was so excited to try it out! This product comes in a 4x100g pack which makes it a great on-the-go snack. This product tasted similar to other fruit flavoured Greek yogurts that I have tried. As with other Greek yogurts, this product is thick and creamy. It is quite sweet though and a bit overpowering. I was slightly disappointed with the added grains in the product as they didn’t give me a satisfying crunch as I had hoped. I personally wouldn’t buy this product as I typically prefer having plain Greek yogurt and adding fruits and crunchy nuts + seeds. I would consider recommending this product to people as it is a high protein snack with 8g of protein and only 90 Calories per yogurt cup. However, I am not sure whether the “added grains” component of this product is worth the additional cost as there isn’t much in the product to make a significant difference nutritionally. Overall, I think this product can be included as part of a healthy balanced diet. Although the sugar content is a bit high (9g per 100g yogurt), this product is made from relatively natural ingredients and would make a better snack option than a cookie or other baked goods. As dietitians, we often recommend the healthiest snack options for our clients (plain Greek yogurt with fruits and nuts+seeds). However, it is also important to understand that some people may not be ready to part with flavoured yogurt so I think this product could be a good option! I would give this product a rating of 3.5 out of 5.
