Siggi's Releases Plant-Based Yogurt With More Protein Than a Clif Bar
Siggi's just launched a new plant-based yogurt that has more protein than any other plant-based yogurt brand on the market—and more protein than certain protein bars.
The Icelandic company is known for its low-sugar, high-protein yogurt, and it just announced that it will debut a plant-based yogurt that has a whopping 10 grams of protein, which is more than what's in a chocolate chip Clif Bar.
The flavors of this plant-based yogurt line will include:
- vanilla and cinnamon
- mixed berries
Another health perk? Siggi's plant-based yogurt will also contain about 40 percent less sugar than other yogurt alternatives, with just 8 to 9 grams of sugar in each 5.3-ounce cup.
Here's how siggi's yogurt compares to other leading brands:
- siggi's plant-based yogurt (5.3 ounces): 8-9 grams of sugar, 10 grams of protein
- Chobani vanilla coconut-based yogurt (5.3 ounces): 11 grams sugar, <1 gram protein
- Forager vanilla cashew-based yogurt (5.3 ounces): 12 grams sugar, 3 grams protein
- Kite Hill vanilla almond-based yogurt (5.3 ounces): 18 grams sugar, 4 grams protein
- Ripple vanilla pea protein-based yogurt (5.3 ounces): 15 grams sugar, 6 grams protein
- Stonyfield vanilla soy-based yogurt (5.3 ounces): 18 grams sugar, 6 grams protein
- So Delicious vanilla coconut-milk based yogurt (5.3 ounces): 15 grams sugar, 0 grams protein
Made with a blend of coconut, macadamia, and pea protein, this yogurt undeniably stands out from its competitors as far as nutrition. Siggi's dairy-based yogurt is also higher in protein and lower in sugar than other yogurt brands. The vanilla & cinnamon 2 percent yogurt, for example, contains 11 grams of sugar and 15 grams of protein per 5.3-ounce cup. For comparison, Chobani Vanilla Greek Yogurt has 12 grams of sugar and 12 grams of protein.
"Like our dairy products, our plant-based products are rich, creamy, lower in sugar, and higher in protein than what's available on the market today. Nearly 15 years ago, we started a low-sugar, simple ingredient revolution with our signature skyr, and now continue to deliver on that commitment in plant-based as well," said siggi's Founder and Chairman Siggi Hilmarsson in a press release.
We're excited to give this plant-based yogurt a shot—we love siggi's line of skyr yogurt, so it will be interesting to see if the plant-based variety mimics its creamy texture.
