FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Green Valley’s New Lactose-Free Milk Yogurt & Kefir
Transform breakfast with two new, whole milk, dairy delights made with milk from organic family farms
Petaluma, California, February 16, 2016 –
Green Valley Creamery announces two exciting additions to their organic, lactose-free dairy line: Plain Whole Milk Yogurt and Plain Whole Milk Kefir. Ideal for lactose-intolerant people, those with sensitive stomachs and anyone who loves great-tasting whole milk dairy, the new Plain Whole Milk Kefir (32oz) and Plain Whole Milk Yogurt (24oz) are introduced at a suggested retail price of $5.29 for the yogurt and $5.99 for the kefir. Both items are available at Whole Foods Markets nationwide with wider distribution at natural food stores later in the spring.
Current dairy consumption trends reflect a shift towards whole milk products, meeting consumers’ needs for flavorful and indulgent dairy options. Whole milk dairy, a minimally-processed and nutrient-dense food, is ideal for a healthful breakfast, daytime snack or for school lunches. Whole milk Kefir, a drinkable yogurt which is cultured with a kefir-specific blend of live active cultures, and whole milk yogurt are perfect for many cooking and baking applications. Kefir can be substituted in any recipe asking for milk or buttermilk and whole milk yogurt can be used in place of sour cream.
“Our new whole milk products are made with simple, carefully crafted recipes featuring the richness of whole milk combined with the superb sweet and tangy flavor of our traditional yogurts and kefirs”, said Jennifer Bice, Founder & Managing Director of Green Valley Creamery. “We’re delighted to bring wholesome, organic dairy back into the lives of families that need to avoid lactose yet want to enjoy an indulgent, healthy treat.”
People with lactose intolerance don’t have enough lactase enzymes to digest lactose, the sugar in milk. To make lactose-free dairy, the lactase enzyme is added to break down the lactose into two easily digestible sugars, glucose and galactose. The result of this simple step is lactose-free, real dairy that leaves all nutritional benefits of the cultured dairy intact.
The organic milk and cream in Green Valley Creamery lactose-free dairy come from certified organic family farms in the heart of Sonoma County along California’s verdant coast. In addition to organic certification, all Green Valley Creamery lactose-free products are also Certified Humane®, certified kosher, and gluten-free and carefully cultured at a solar-powered creamery – evidence of the company’s commitment and care for people, animals, and the planet.
