Butterworks Farm Plain Organic Nonfat Yogurt Review

Butterworks Farm Plain Organic Nonfat YogurtI stumbled across Butterworks Farm Plain Organic Nonfat Yogurt at Whole Foods and since it was new to me, I took a closer look, only to find that a cup (8 ounces) of the stuff had only 75 calories. That's 5 calories less than a Dannon Light 'n Fit Yogurt (6 ounces), for 2 ounces more yogurt. A 32-ounce container cost $3.99, which was close enough to other yogurt cartons, so without hesitation, I threw this into my shopping cart, giddy with the prospect of a new, hopefully delicious, yogurt find.

I opened the container when I got home. On the Butterworks Farm website, the yogurt is described as being, "Noted for its firm set and clean, pleasing taste ... especially smooth and mild." Funny, I didn't find the "set" of this yogurt to be particularly firm, and the taste wasn't entirely pleasing to me. In fact, the yogurt was fairly runny (and the whey - the liquid part - separated after the yogurt had been opened); I later came across a New York Times article that said that the reason this yogurt was thinner is that it had no pectin, which explains my finding. The yogurt also tasted somewhat sour, even for plain yogurt. A little bit of Splenda made it more palatable, but overall this wasn't the best plain yogurt I've had.

As disappointing as the taste was, the nutritional stats are pretty fantastic. An 8 ounce serving of Butterworks Farm Plain Organic Nonfat Yogurt provides 75 calories, no fat, 11 grams of sugars and 8 grams of protein, as well as a full 30% of the daily value for calcium.

Overall, I'd say that the taste of this yogurt was so-so at best. However, with the low calorie content, it would be great to use this in recipes substituting for sour cream. As a standalone plain yogurt to eat, I wouldn't choose this one. Better choices include Better Whey of Life Plain 'n Tart Protein Yogurt, Cascade Fresh Plain Yogurt, Olympus Traditional Greek Plain Low Fat Yogurt Review and even Siggi's Icelandic Style Skyr Strained Non Fat Plain Yogurt.
