Nancy’s Oatmilk Yogurt Combines Plant Protein and Non-Dairy Probiotics

0

Springfield Creamery, the makers of Nancy’s Probiotic Foods, is a family owned Eugene, Oregon company that was founded in 1960. They are dedicated to their dairy product lines, but have also catered to dairy-free customers for years. Their Soy Yogurt was recently discontinued, but they’ve replaced it with a full range of non-dairy Nancy’s Oatmilk Yogurt. It’s dairy-free, soy-free, and has 30 to 50% less sugar than the leading plant-based yogurts (and many dairy yogurts).

Nancy's Oatmilk Yogurt Combines Plant Protein and Non-Dairy Probiotics (Review, Ingredients, Allergen Info & More) - Dairy-Free, Nut-Free, Gluten-Free, Soy-Free & Vegan

Nancy’s Oatmilk Yogurt Combines Plant Protein and Non-Dairy Probiotics

To keep it friendly for most dietary needs, Nancy’s Oatmilk Yogurt is made with an oat base and enriched with faba bean protein. Yes, it’s free of not only dairy, nuts, and soy, but also pea protein! And it’s stocked with 5 types of live cultures for plenty of probiotic action.

These yogurts are made without top allergens, and do not have a “may contain” statement for any allergens. The container we purchased actually had dairy-free, gluten-free, nut-free, and soy-free listed right on the package. However, they are made on shared equipment with dairy (we’re assuming yogurt), and they do not specify certified gluten-free oats on the ingredients.

All flavors of this dairy-free yogurt are sold in single-serve containers. The Plain and Vanilla are also sold in multi-serve tubs.

Yogurt is supposed to be sour!

5.0 rating
November 19, 2019

The low reviews for this yogurt are likely from people unfamiliar with what real low-sugar yogurt tastes like – sour. I personally love this yogurt. It’s delicious, creamy, and thick. I now prefer this to the other dairy-free yogurts that I’ve tried that made from almond or cashew. I’ve only tried the vanilla, but will also be giving the plain a try next time.
One reviewer mentioned getting sick from this yogurt. That person might be reacting to the faba bean protein. There is an actual hereditary disorder, Favism, that creates an allergic response to fava. Something for those with sensitivities to legumes to watch out for.

No sugar . . . amazing with Stevia and added fruit

For me, the plain oatmilk yogurt is perfect . . . remarkably, it has 0 grams of sugar. I add stevia, my own raw fruit (usually some blueberries), and some walnuts. It makes a delicious, healthy treat that works to keep my glucose levels in check. Tastes better than Soy-based yogurts with less sugar. Nicely done!

Tastes terrible-it’s so bad I wonder if it’s spoiled? It’s really disappointing!

Loving this!

I have tried every brand of plant-based yogurt on the market and they usually either fall short on protein content or they taste like chalk. Nancy’s Oatmilk Yogurt is the first plant-based yogurt that hits the mark for me on taste (tangy, lightly sweetened), texture (creamy), and protein content-six grams of protein from faba beans. I’m lucky in that I don’t have any food sensitivity issues, so I judge this product purely on taste and nutritional content.

Not for everyone - but I loved it

I’m honestly surprised to find some of these reviews, I really thought I found the holy Grail of vegan yogurt. It’s tangy, has body to it, and goes amazingly with some maple syrup, granola and fruit or used a sour cream. Seriously I can barely tell the difference in taste from sour cream when I use it as such – maybe it’s not for everyone, but it’s been perfect for me.

Both times I had Nancy’s Oat milk yogurt I was deathly ill

I do not understand how oat milk yogurt can make you sick but unfortunately both times I had this yogurt, I was violently ill. I was wondering if anybody else has had this problem .

Still looking for an excellent plain yogurt

I was so excited to try this, I want to find a plain yogurt that’s higher in protein and lower in sugar. I purchased the big container of plain yogurt because I usually make breakfast with the plain Silk or So Delicious yogurts. When I opened this it smelled like cheese and I was concerned it was spoiled. I like sour yogurts, but this was so funky tasting it ruined whatever I added to it (oatmeal, fruit, granola, etc.) No amount of jam or maple syrup could save it.

Why is it sour?

2.0 rating
September 23, 2019

I had high hopes for this yogurt, since I’m trying to work on my poor gut bacteria issues. I just ate the blueberry. Why is it sour? I added some raw sugar just to make it palatable, but it still tasted like bad medicine. I thought it was expired, but no, that’s not it either. Maybe some other flavors will work?
I gave it two starts because I don’t think taking medicine would be any better.

strange texture, odd smell....

1.0 rating
September 16, 2019

Nancy’s products are usually excellent, I tried the plain oatmilk yogurt because of the low
sugar content. The texture was nothing like yogurt at all. It was like a grainy solution, it had to be well stirred and still was close to liquid. It smelled odd. I mixed sweetener, raisins
and unsweetened chocolate which almost made it edible. I also think the addition of
fava/faba bean protein didn’t improve taste, texture or digestibility.
I’d suggest Nancy’s work on a reformulation and focus group taste testing…it’s a great
concept, but the execution is weak.

Best dairy free yogurt option I’ve found!

5.0 rating
September 11, 2019

I have a lot of diet restrictions including nut, soy, gluten, dairy. I have tried and enjoyed coconut milk yogurt but haven’t found any that are a significant source of protein. These have it all! My first taste was of the blueberry version and like many others wondered if it had gone slightly off due to the sourness of it, but I enjoyed it enough to try the vanilla version which was even better. Not sure if less sour than blueberry or if it is just growing on me, but I loved it! Looking forward to trying the plain and hopefully expanding into my menu for smoothies, etc.
