Culinary Versatility of Dannon Oikos Greek Nonfat Yogurt Benefits Operators and Consumers
According to Datassential research, 56 percent of consumers want more protein. Operators can attract these patrons with Dannon Oikos Greek Nonfat Yogurt, which contains twice as much protein as most regular yogurt. As consumers are willing to pay 34 percent more for menu items made with Greek yogurt versus regular, going Greek also brings profit potential.
Dannon Oikos Greek Nonfat Yogurt is designed to have a mild flavor and creamy texture so it tastes great on its own and as an ingredient in hot, cold, savory and sweet dishes. Dannon Foodservice offers the Plain and Vanilla flavors in 32 oz. plastic tubs and 6 lbs. bags to give operators bulk options.
Chefs can adapt traditional fare by using Dannon Oikos Plain Greek Nonfat Yogurt as an ingredient substitute to reduce calories and fat while including protein when replacing sour cream, cream cheese, mayonnaise, heavy cream and oils, to add appeal across the menu—in salads, dips, dressings, sauces and more.
Mike Miles, Vice President of Sales of Dannon Foodservice, says, “We want to offer products that have the nutritional benefits and great taste consumers are looking for and are versatile enough that chefs can use them to fuel culinary inspiration throughout their menu. Greek yogurt is growing in popularity among consumers, and it’s a profitable opportunity for operators to incorporate a different, protein-rich ingredient into existing offerings or feature it in new, on-trend dishes.”
