I've had more struggles than you can imagine being lactose intolerant so I have tried almost every single type of dairy-free and lactose-free yogurt, and this one is by far the best. Brands like Kite Hill have nothing on Green Valley Organics. All of their products are lactose-free, but actually taste like regular dairy products. Their brand does a really great job of educating people on lactose intolerance and why they make all of their products organically. 

The Brand

Green Valley Organics makes two different types of yogurt: low fat and whole milk. The company also produces other products like butter, cream cheese, and sour cream. The best part is that all of their goat and cow milk products are made to be completely lactose-free and organic. 

In order to make this yogurt lactose-free, they use real dairy and milk, but add a lactase enzyme to remove the sugar/lactose from the milk. It is because of these ingredients that their products taste exactly like regular dairy milk, just without all the pain and discomfort. 

The Taste

cream, ice, milk, sweet

There are only two flavors of this low fat yogurt, but strawberry and plain are all I need. The strawberry has a sort of fruit on the bottom consistency, which makes it very flavorful. The only downside is that also makes it very sweet. It doesn't taste too sweet, but it does have a lot more sugar than protein, which isn't the best way to start the day. It is still a great snack that tastes amazing, but the plain is definitely the flavor that is better for you. 

The Nutritional Facts

The plain flavor is actually not what I would expect at all. That usually means that the yogurt is very sour and tart without sweeteners, but this brand's plain yogurt is just sweet enough. It borders on a vanilla taste, but only contains 9 grams of sugar as compared to 10 grams of protein. This is a great ratio at only 120 calories. Most yogurts that are flavored contain too much sugar, so this plain yogurt is much healthier.

It is really remarkable that a lactose-free yogurt can taste this good. Even with the use of organic cow's milk, any lactose intolerant person can enjoy real yogurt again without worrying about the taste difference. Green Valley Organics allows me to eat and love their yogurt without any allergen or health concerns.
