Rachel's Organic Bio-Live Yogurt
Advantages: Tasty, healthy
Disadvantages: A bit runny for me
Whilst shopping in Tesco's the other week I decided to take a look for a different brand of low fat yoghurt to try. I usually buy Muller Light but I just fancied a change.
I saw a pot of Rachel's Organic Luscious Low Fat Bio Live Yoghurt with Vanilla - goodness I hope the yoghurt is as much of a mouthful as the name of it! The pot contained 350g and cost £1.59. As I live in Llandudno and Rachel's is a Welsh company I thought I would support the local firm and give it a try.
The tub is an ordinary shape - no squares or ridges - and is obviously a bit bigger that the individual sized tubs! It is made of coated cardboard with a black peel off lid with a clear plastic lid over the top of that.
The front of the tub just has a picture of a vanilla flower together with the long winded name of the yoghurt. It looks nice and classy and makes the yoghurt inviting which is the whole point of packaging isn't it?
On the back of the tub there is some information about Rachel's explaining how they keep things simple by using only the very best organic ingredients to make their products. There is also some specific information on how this particular yoghurt is made, telling us that the milk comes from cows who graze in organic pastures rich in clover amongst other things.
I removed the plastic lid and peeled back the inner cover. The yoghurt looked pleasant enough and there was a faint fragrance of vanilla. So far so good then.
I put my spoon into the yoghurt with the intention of putting some onto my strawberries. I was a surprised to find that the yoghurt was a little bit runnier that I had anticipated; I am used to Muller Light which is quite a thick creamy yoghurt.
I was able to actually pour this yoghurt from the tub into my dish, although having said that it coated my strawberries very well.
The taste of the yoghurt is very nice. The vanilla isn't too strong and has a sharp tang to it so the yoghurt isn't too sweet or sickly. It was just the thing to eat with my strawberries and the next day I had a dish of yoghurt with sugar free strawberry jam in it and that was lovely too. It is less than 2% fat so that's another advantage as far as I am concerned.
This yoghurt is suitable for vegetarians and is gluten free too.
The nutritional values per 100g are as follows:
Of which sugars 12.4g
Of which saturates 1.2g
If you want to find out any more about the company or any of the products the website address is www.rachelsorganic.co.uk
All in all I enjoyed the yoghurt although it won't become one of my favourites - I may well try the strawberry one in the same range though!
Summary: Sadly I would prefer Muller Light
