Yeo Valley Organic Yoghurt
Advantages: so rich and creamy
Disadvantages: lemon curd yoghurt may not appeal to all
Lemon Curd yoghurt - ok so it may not seem the most appealing to all, but I tend to like things that are a little different.
Lemon curd is the new flavour from Yeo Valley organic range. This is a probiotic yoghurt which comes in a large 450gram pot size. This pot cost me £1.35 from Waitrose, but they can be found in most supermarkets and often on 3 for 2 deals.
The pot is a quite a thin plastic tub which can be recycled as can the plastic lid on top. Under the lid is a peel off seal, so that you can see your yoghurt has not been tampered with.
This flavour label is a dark green with lemons on the front and the Yeo Valley symbol. Around to the back is a wealth of information upon the product itself.
They give you a detailed nutrional information section for both 100g and 150g and a slightly larger small section with the fat, sugar, saturates, salt and calories on - which is what most people are interested in. It would have been more useful to have the 100g and perhaps a content for the whole pot especially as you can use it for cooking, rather than 150g as the two are so similar it seems quite irrelivant.
The ingredients list is comprehensive with most items having organic infront which is very apppealing. They also inform you the factory does produce items with nuts (although not in this), that it is gluten free, vegetarian and has probiotic live cultures.
A particularly nice touch is the bit that tells you about where the product is from. A family run business in Somerset and has the Yeo river running by, which is where they thought of the name. Something else I like is the little symbols that they have achieved for there product stamped on the label - soil assocciation organic, EU/Non EU Agriculture and osmsco (organic milk co-operative).
If you unzip the label from the plastic pot inside you find a neat little surprise. A reciepe! in mine it is a reciepe for moroccan chicken in which you can use your lemon curd yoghurt.
The yoghurt itself is a pale cream with a very slight hint of yellow. When you taste the yoghurt you are not disappointed, the taste is very rich and creamy and the lemon curd flavour is subtule but definate. I thought the curd flavouring might be to sour and overpowering but I was wrong, it works well with the yoghurt flavour. I have not tried it in cooking but enjoy it with fruit and on it's own.
