Dip Into The Health Benefits Of Greek Yogurt
While consumers continue to seek out healthier items at the supermarket, retailers know that Greek-style yogurt has become one of the fastest growing categories in the dairy industry. Containing twice the protein of traditional yogurt and many active cultures that promote digestive health, rich and creamy Greek yogurt is quickly making its way into other products throughout dairy and deli departments.
Dallas-based Santa Barbara Bay rolls out Santa Barbara Bay All Natural Greek Yogurt Dips made with Voskos Greek yogurt in 12-oz containers. They are available in five flavor varieties including: Cucumber Dill (a traditional blend of Greek yogurt, light cream cheese, real cucumber, lemon juice and fresh dill); Thai Three Pepper (a spicy combination of Greek yogurt, light cream cheese, green pepper, roasted red pepper and cayenne); Roasted Red Pepper & Asiago Cheese (a bold, flavorful pairing), Zesty Ranch (an all-time favorite with a Greek twist); and Spinach (a melt-in-your mouth mix with fresh, tender spinach). They can be served with an assortment of crackers and crudités, making the dips a perfect addition to any snack or appetizer spread.
“Greek-style yogurt is all the rage lately among consumers because of its unique health benefits and its rich, creamy texture,” says Marketing Manager Emily Alfano. “With this in mind, Santa Barbara Bay is giving consumers what they want: a delicious alternative to traditional sour cream-based dips that today’s health-conscious consumer can feel good about serving to the entire family.”
