A SuperNatural Culture: What Makes our Yogurt Different

organic whole milk plain yogurt

When we rebranded all of our products to Kalona SuperNatural, we received tons of email from fans of Cultural Revolution, our original yogurt brand. They were worried that their yogurt – so different from any other on the shelves – had disappeared. We knew our product was unique in the United States, but had no idea it had garnered so many fans in its short time on the market.

Today, our yogurt is one of the most talked about topics on our Facebook page. Here’s some of the great comments:

Reminds me of my first yogurt many years ago in Switzerland long before it was available in the US.

Had some yogurt today, love it absolutely love it. Low calories, low in carbs and low in sugar. Just the right sweetness without going over the top. Will be buying more tomorrow.

The Hy-Vee here just started carrying your strawberry yogurt and it’s delicious! Keep up the great work…

My husband can’t get enough of the yogurt and I love the milk! The package design drew us in and the quality of the product made us loyal customers. Thanks to Whole Foods for stocking this product at the store on Lake in Forest Park IL.

What makes Kalona SuperNatural Yogurt different?

Most people notice right away that the texture is completely different from anything they’ve seen in US supermarkets.  As one of our customers said, “After getting back from an extended stay in France, I started searching for an American yogurt that didn’t taste like pudding.”

Sticking to our SuperNatural philosophy, we add no stabilizers or gelatin to the yogurt to thicken it. We don’t whip it to smooth out the natural marbled texture of the cultured milk and we add no artificial colors. We let nature do that work for us.

What’s cool (we think) about our yogurt is that the consistency – and sometimes even the color – changes throughout the year as our cows eat what some would call a seasonal diet.

Ain’t that sweet?

Not really. Not only do we skip the artificial colors, but we also add less fruit (and natural sugars) so that you can taste the yogurt. That’s kind of the point, right? A typical yogurt has 20-35 grams of sugar. Ours has 7-12 grams per serving.  Some of our most loyal fans swear their “taste buds have been transformed” after transitioning from the super-sweet taste of the highly processed yogurts, to the supernatural taste of ours.

So what if it tastes great?

Yogurt is one of the original health foods! There is evidence dating back to 2000 B.C. citing yogurt as a remedy for stomach ailments. It didn’t make it to the States until some years later – around 1908 – when it was made available in tablet form for tummy troubles.

We know a lot more about it’s health benefits today. Yogurt is nutritionally rich in protein, calcium, riboflavin, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12. Lactose-intolerant? You can typically eat yogurt with no side-effects, as much of the lactose in the milk is converted to lactic acid by the bacterial culture.

And something a lot of moms and dads already know, yogurt is a mechanism by which kids – even picky eaters – can be convinced to consume something healthy!
