Savor the day. Be passionate about your work. Open your arms to family, friends, and to life itself.Chobani Greek Yogurt is more than just a delicious, protein-rich snack. It’s a celebration of the vibrant Mediterranean spirit.
AgroFarma, Inc.,a NY based dairy product manufacturer founded by Hamdi Ulukaya, recently introduced a delicious new product called Chobahi Greek Yogurt.Creating true Greek yogurt is an art. It uses a centuries old technique that originated in Europe and includes taking something away and not adding anything. In fact, Greek yogurt is not heavily processed or enhanced with preservatives or sweeteners. A unique straining process where the whey is removed results in great tasting yogurt that is pure, clean, and simple, and has a rich, thick,and creamy texture.
AgroFarma, Inc., located in the rolling hills of Upstate NY, produces Chobani Greek Yogurt.There,a team of yogurt makers with more than 40 years of experience has made it its mission to produce the highest quality, all natural Greek yogurts.
Reason to treat oneself with Chobani
Derived from the Greek word chopani meaning “shepherd”,Chobani Greek Yogurt offers more than twice the amount of protein found in other major U.S.brands.One serving of Chobani Greek Yogurt can deliver up to 34 percent of an adult's daily protein requirement.Chobani is a smart choice for the South beach ,Atkins dieters or those on low or no meat diet.
Chobani is an excellent source of calcium,each cup completes 20 percent of an adult’s recommended daily needs.Calcium rich yogurts if eaten regularly, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis, the thinning and loss of bone mass that affects 25 million Americans as they age.And can also reduce the risk of colon cancer.
Chobani has 5 live and active cultures(Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus, as well as Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidus, and L Casei.) that boosts immunity by regulating lymphocytes, as well as antibodies within the body. Studies have also shown that probiotics help improve digestion, combat lactose intolerance and constipation, and promote the growth of healthy bacteria in the colon, reducing carcinogens.
The company uses organic farming practices to preserve the environment with a focus on producing high-quality and all-natural yogurts. All of the products are made with milk that contains no artificial hormones,preservatives and added sweeteners and the manufacturing facility is HACCP certified to ensure safety and quality,thus completely suitable for all ages.
