Yogurt Made with Cheese Cultures
Stonyfield, Londonderry, N.H., developed Petite Crème, which is made with cheese cultures added to organic milk instead of yogurt cultures.
Modeled from fromage blanc—a silky-sweet fresh cheese popular in France—Petite Crème offers all the protein Greek yogurt as to offer, but now can be eaten just like yogurt too.
“As organic Greek yogurt makers ourselves, we’re not trying to replace Greek, but we know that there are people out there looking for something to add to their fridge and others who never really got into Greek yogurt,” says Sophie Schmitt, director of marketing. “We discovered some people are eating Greek yogurt even though they don’t like it. We wanted to give each and every one of those people something to love.”
Petite Crème comes in 5.3-ounce single-serve cups for a suggested retail price of $1.89 in Vive la Vanilla!, La Vie en Strawberry, Belle Blueberry, Mon Cherry Amour, Ooh Lala Peach, Stawberry-Banana Ménage and Plain & Simple varieties.
