Full of good culture

To gain the benefits of yogurt, the cultures in it need to be LIVE. But as these cultures last just days, freshly-made yogurt is only way of ensuring you receive the optimum benefits.

We’re talking about the live Lactic cultures! These cultures are responsible for milk’s coagulation in yogurt production, and they also help give yogurt its flavour and aroma.

All EasiYo yogurts contain Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Streptococcus thermophilus and Lactobacillus acidophilus. Some certain products also contain the Bifidobacterium Lactis strain. The combination gives EasiYo its wonderful taste and texture.
Suitable For Vegetarians

All EasiYo yogurts are suitable for vegetarians, but not vegans as they contain dairy products.
Non-GM (Genetically Modified)

All ingredients in EasiYo yogurts are specified Non-GM.
Wheat and Gluten Free

All EasiYo yogurts are gluten and wheat free.
The starch in our pulps is derived from corn. Any glucose is dextrose and the maltodextrin is tapioca.
Calcium

EasiYo is also a source of calcium. Each cup (200gms) of EasiYo yogurt delivers 30% or more of the recommended daily requirement for nutritional *calcium.
*RDA is based on an average adult diet requirement of 800mg Calcium
Natural Fats

Although much of the yogurt sold in industrialized countries is produced from skimmed milk, traditional yogurt has always contained some 3-4% milk fat.

EasiYo Natural, EasiYo Greek and EasiYo Sweet Flavoured yogurts provide this level of essential natural fats, making them a good source of energy and nourishment.
Cholesterol

As a dairy product, EasiYo yogurt naturally contains a small amount of cholesterol.

By substituting Low Fat EasiYo yogurt for such foods as cream, mayonnaise, cream cheese or sour cream, you can help look after your weight without giving up the joys of eating good food.
Milk Fat

EasiYo yogurt comes in regular (whole milk), reduced fat and low-fat varieties.
Made in New Zealand

Most people will have heard of clean, green New Zealand.
What most people don’t know, is that even in New Zealand there are ‘clean & green’ areas, and there are ‘CLEAN & GREEN’ areas of the country.

You see, all EasiYo products are made using the finest premium New Zealand milk powder… which is derived from our free-range cows that graze the most pristine and fertile pastures on the West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island.

This area is known locally as ‘Godzone’, because of its untouched beauty and perfect farming climate. We are very proud of this region, and it’s a primary reason our milk powder is so special.

Nutritionals Explained

Energy

Energy is required for the body for a wide range of purposes, including brain function, metabolism of organs and muscular activity. The main sources of energy are carbohydrates, protein, fats and alcohol.

Protein

Proteins are the most versatile macronutrient which maintain crucial functional and structural properties in human body. Dietary proteins are broken down in the body into amino acids, which are used in cell signaling, immune response, and used as building blocks for muscles, organs, and some hormones. Although human bodies can synthesize certain amino acids, there are nine essential amino acids that can only be obtained from food.

Carbohydrate

Carbohydrate is the most common energy source, especially for the brain, which requires glucose for its metabolism. It is commonly found in plants such as grains, legumes, fruits and vegetables; dairy products are the only animal-derived foods containing a significant amount of carbohydrate, in the form of lactose.

Fat

Fats are the most concentrated energy source, and they can also act as an energy reserve when they are stored in the body as fat tissues. They are involved in many structural and metabolic functions of the body. Moreover, fats are required for the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins i.e. Vitamins A, D, E and K.

Fibre

Fibre is the indigestible portion of plants. Since it is not digested in our stomach and intestines, it adds bulk, soften stools and shortens transit time in the intestinal tract. Therefore, it is important for digestive health.

Sodium

Sodium occurs in most foods as sodium chloride, which we know as ‘salt’. It is important in maintaining body fluid volume, and electric potential in tissues. A great part of people’s sodium intake is from processed food. High sodium intake is related to hypertension, so people are encouraged to control their sodium/salt intake.

 

Calcium

Calcium is crucial for the normal growth and development of the bone, as well as proper functioning of neuromuscular and cardiac functions. Prolonged low calcium intake is usually associated with poor bone health, especially osteoporosis. Adequate dietary calcium is extremely important during the rapid growth period (young children), as the bone mass increases dramatically, i.e. sevenfold from birth to puberty. Dairy products, such as milk, cheese and yogurt, are well known sources for calcium. Adequate calcium intake plus sufficient Vitamin D intake, and exercise, will help to achieve optimal bone health.
