FAQ

Powerful Yogurt

  1. So how is Powerful Yogurt actually different?

    More protein: Because we designed Powerful Yogurt specifically to meet the health and energy needs of athletes and the active lifestyle, we created a high-protein yogurt with more protein than other yogurts. There are two reasons for this – our larger serving size and our unique Greek yogurt recipe.

    More yogurt: Powerful Yogurt also has 50 percent more yogurt than most yogurts on the shelf today – 8oz instead of the usual 5.3oz. It’s a man-sized serving designed to keep guys fueled better and longer.

    Better taste: Natural always tastes better. That’s why we use real fruit for the freshest taste possible and a proprietary Greek yogurt straining process that not only gives you more protein, but a great texture that’ll keep you coming back for more.

    More cultured: We also add seven live active cultures to aid in healthy digestion and immune system function whereas a lot of the other guys just include five.

  3. What kind of protein do you add to get the high protein content?

    NONE — we think natural is always the way to go. We have a proprietary Greek yogurt straining process that allows us to get 21-25 grams of protein per 8 oz. serving.

  4. Who needs protein?

    Everyone needs protein to help build, maintain and repair muscle tissue but because guys tend to be bigger, they need more protein. To calculate your specific protein needs, use the Powerful Yogurt protein calculator.

  5. Does Powerful Yogurt have GMOs?

    No. We only source non-GMO ingredients for our products.

  6. Is it organic?

    Powerful Yogurt is made with all-natural ingredients and we’ll always keep it that way. In our research with consumers across the U.S., they told us that an product made with all-natural ingredients was most important to them; the vast majority weren’t interested in paying a premium for a certified organic product. You can always count on us for a great-tasting product using the highest quality and all-natural ingredients we can find.

  7. I see corn starch in the label. What’s up with that?

    We never use corn starch in the yogurt itself, however we do use non-GMO corn starch in the all-natural “fruit-on-the-bottom” mixture in the five fruit flavors of Powerful Yogurt. The high-quality, all-natural corn starch we use in the fruit flavors is critical for ensuring the thick, smooth consistency that Powerful Yogurt is known for and for keeping the fruit fresh and full of flavor. We did extensive research in order to find an all-natural, non-GMO corn starch that would live up to our high ingredient standards.

  8. Where does the sugar content in Powerful Yogurt come from? Do you add sugar?

    We're committed to keeping sugar as low as possible, which is why we use a blend of natural cane sugar and stevia in the fruit flavors of our Powerful Yogurt line. Stevia is an ideal sugar substitute because imparts a smooth, natural sweetness without boosting our insulin levels or adding calories.

    Sugar occurs naturally in milk in the form of lactose, which accounts for the sugar content that you see on the nutrition facts label of our plain yogurt.
