Hiland Dairy’s yogurt line has expanded to include two new products: Health Wise Probiotic Yogurts and Yophoria Probiotic Fruit and Yogurt Smoothies. Both provide a source of protein, calcium, and live and active cultures.
“When consumed in sufficient amounts, probiotics can provide health benefits beyond basic nutrition,” says Celia Harkey, a registered dietitian with the Midwest Dairy Council. “Dairy products containing probiotics also provide a number of essential nutrients, including calcium, magnesium, and potassium. These are among the nutrients that have been identified as most lacking in the average American diet. Three servings of dairy foods every day is an easy way to help meet recommended intakes of calcium and vitamin D, plus yogurt is a good source of high-quality protein.”
Hiland Dairy’s Health Wise yogurts are available in multi-packs of four 4-ounce cups. The yogurts are available in four flavors: Vanilla, Pomegranate Cherry, Strawberry, and Pomegranate Blueberry.
The Yophoria Probiotic fruit and yogurt smoothies by Hiland Dairy come in 9-ounce single-serving packages. Each serving includes 5 grams, or 20 percent, of the recommended daily value of fiber. Available at most places where Hiland Dairy products are sold, Yophoria comes in six flavors: Washington Apple, Tropical Mango, Peach Passion, Pina Colada, Pomegranate Berry, and Strawberries and Cream.
With the addition of Health Wise and Yophoria, Hiland Dairy is now a full-line yogurt supplier. Other Hiland Dairy yogurt products include low fat yogurts available in six- or 24-ounce packages and light fat free yogurts, also available in six- or 24-ounce packages.
