I feel like yogurt is so versatile because it can be used in recipes for any meal, snack or dessert during the day. It can be made sweet or savory. Eaten plain or baked into a recipe. We love Greek yogurt!
I have shared so many recipes using yogurt on my blog and here are some of my favorites:
|Strawberry Cheesecake Parfaits|
|Healthy Mini Key Lime Pies|
|Lighter Buffalo Chicken Dip|
|Frozen Yogurt Bark|
|Carrot Cake Smoothie|
Dannon's perspective on GMOs is that that believe that currently approved GMOs are safe. Since there is a growing consumer preferent for nonGMO ingredients in the US, they want to meet consumer demand and therefore, are making their products nonGMO. Consumers wanted their food labeled and Dannon is giving them what they want.
Dannon yogurts are great for me and my daughter. She likes the kid versions while I like the Greek yogurt versions the best.
I like that Dannon listens to their customers because the customer is what really matters. When a company does not listen to their customers, they may lose business. This change will be helpful for those that believe that GMOs are bad and possibly harmful. Knowing what is in your food (or not in your food) can be beneficial, especially if you are trying to avoid certain ingredients or ways that food is produced.
Consumers are now wanting more honest food and labeling of their food which is what they are getting. When you go to certain restaurants for example, you can now see calorie counts of foods and sometimes, can see the ingredients that are in these foods.
The milk that Dannon is going to be using is sourced from the farms that they know which they are the first to do this compared to other yogurt companies. Also, they are implementing animal welfare practices at farmer partners' operations using the Validus Certification system. By July 2016, more than 90% of their milk supply will come from farms that are certified.
I went to a dinner that I was invited to with Michigan Agriculture where we learned about dairy farming and talked about GMOs as well. It was very interesting and I am now reading a book learning more about farming and the farmers side vs. the food side.
