Q. What is Meadow Fresh Kaló Authentic Greek Yoghurt?

A. Meadow Fresh Kaló Authentic Greek Yoghurt is made with fresh New Zealand milk and a culture originating from the Greek Island of Crete. It is strained to remove the whey (water naturally found in milk), leaving a thicker and creamier concentrated yoghurt that is high in protein and low in fat.

 

Q. What makes Meadow Fresh Kaló ‘Authentic’ Greek Yoghurt?

A. Meadow Fresh Kaló is made, by using the straining method which creates a thick, creamy yoghurt that is high in protein and low fat.

 

 Q. How can Meadow Fresh Kaló be so much higher in protein than regular yoghurt?

A. Meadow Fresh Kaló Authentic Greek Yoghurt, with 15g of protein in Natural and 13g of protein in Fruited (per 160g serving), is an excellent source of protein. 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 yoghurt. It takes 3 litres of milk to produce 1 litre of yoghurt.

 

 Q. If there is liquid on top of my yoghurt when I open it, is that okay?

A. Yes, this is totally natural and nothing to worry about. The liquid is called 'whey' and is the water in the milk. Because we try to keep our products as natural as possible, whey can be occasionally found on top of the yoghurt. Simply pour off the liquid or stir it back in.

 

Q. What does Kaló mean?

A. Kaló is the Greek word for ‘good’

 

Q. What is the difference between Greek Style and Kalo Authentic Greek Yoghurt?

A. Greek Style yoghurts are not Authentic Greek Yoghurt as they do not go through a straining process. Natural Greek Style yoghurt also contains additives such as thickeners and stabilisers.
