Meltemi Greek Yogurt was awarded the Healthy Snack Award recipient for “Best Greek Yogurt” after meeting strict nutritional criteria with a focus on wholesome ingredients reported food magazine Perishable.
According to the media outlet, Good Housekeeping chose the Lower Sugar Meltémi Greek Yogurt, which is produced by Meltémi Brands, Inc.
“As a new brand, we are thrilled to be recognized by Good Housekeeping, a name America has trusted since 1885,” said CEO and Co-founder, Dina Skoteiniadis.
Meltémi launched its line of rich traditional Greek Yogurt and Lower Sugar meltémi Greek Yogurt in supermarkets in 2021.
Lower Sugar meltémi is truly innovative: it’s lactose-free, with 13g of protein, only 4g of sugar and 100 calories per serving. But meltémi goes beyond low sugar/high protein. Lower Sugar meltémi has 25% or more of the daily RV of these important vitamins: A, E, D, B1, B2, B5, B6, B9, B12 and Zinc. Says Skoteiniadis, “Coming out of the pandemic, consumers are focused on staying healthy and shedding those pandemic pounds, and this combination of vitamins and zinc supports both the immune system and metabolism.”
Good Housekeeping Healthy Snack Awards winners must be made with real and recognizable ingredients that you can pronounce. Lower Sugar meltémi is made with real fruit and real vanilla beans, which is not always the case with low/no sugar products in the yogurt aisle. In fact, it has the lowest sugar of any Greek yogurt that has real fruit in its ingredients.
Lower Sugar meltémi is also true Greek strained yogurt, not a “dairy snack” or “ultra-filtered milk”.
Good Housekeeping Healthy Snack Award winners also factor in taste.
“We’ve had wonderful feedback from consumers about how delicious meltémi is,” says Skoteiniadis, “meltémi is made with yogurt cultures from Greece we’ve chosen because they give our yogurt a milder, less sour taste. When you start with a better tasting plain yogurt, you don’t need to add a lot of sugar to make it yummy. We are excited for America to finally experience an authentic Greek yogurt that is nutritious AND delicious!”
