What makes Chobani different from regular yogurts?
We make our yogurt the authentic way, never adding any thickeners. Instead, we use a centuries-old straining technique to remove excess liquid.
Whilst most regular yogurts require one cup of milk to make one cup of yogurt, it takes three cups of milk to make one cup of Chobani! This is why Chobani is so thick, creamy and has almost two times more protein per serve than most regular yogurts.
How do you pronounce Chobani and what does it mean?
Chobani®, pronounced “CHO-BAHN-KNEE,” means “shepherd” in some Mediterranean cultures and is symbolic for a gift that comes from the heart. Say it a few times out loud. We promise it will roll right off of your tongue in no time!
Why choose Chobani?
There are so many reasons to reach for Chobani!
Where should we start? Chobani is a deliciously good-for-you food. The authentic straining process we use not only makes it rich and creamy but also boosts the protein content. Plus, it’s thick, rich and creamy so it’s also a good-for-you way to satisfy your cravings.
What are live and active cultures?
Live and active cultures are living organisms added to milk to make yogurt. Our Chobani yogurt includes a mix of probiotics and starter cultures that are added to milk. The starter cultures help convert the milk into yogurt during fermentation, creating the unique taste and creamy texture Greek yogurt is known for.
Is Chobani pasteurised?
Yes! The real fruit and milk in Chobani products have been processed and pasteurised using heat treatment to ensure they are safe from bacterial and viral contamination.
I am lactose intolerant. Can I eat Chobani?
