Chobani Greek Yogurt FAQ

Where do you source your ingredients from?

Chobani Yogurt is made right here in Dandenong South, using fresh Aussie milk sourced from local farmers.

Since fruit supply is dependent on seasonal variation and environmental factors, we use a combination of local and imported sources to ensure our supply. These sources change depending on availability and where we can get high quality, affordable fruit from.

Regardless of the source, the real fruit blends that we use in our Chobani Yogurt range have been processed and pasteurised using heat treatment to ensure they are safe from bacterial and viral contamination.

What makes Chobani yogurt different to regular yogurts?

We make our yogurt the authentic way, never adding any thickeners. Instead, we use a centuries-old straining technique to remove excess liquid.

Whilst most regular yogurts require one cup of milk to make one cup of yogurt, it takes three cups of milk to make one cup of Chobani! This is why Chobani is so thick, creamy and has almost two times more protein per serve than most regular yogurts.

How do you pronounce Chobani and what does it mean?

Chobani, pronounced “CHO-BAHN-KNEE,” means “shepherd” in some Mediterranean cultures and is symbolic for a gift that comes from the heart. Say it a few times out loud. We promise it will roll right off of your tongue in no time!

How do you pack so much protein into Chobani?

We strain Chobani Yogurt, resulting in the 13-16g of protein you’ll find in every 170g cup. But that’s not the whole story…

All yogurt starts from the same basic recipe: you add cultures to milk and voila, you’ve created yogurt. Here at Chobani we take it one step further.

We use an authentic straining process to remove excess liquid whey from our yogurt, resulting in its deliciously thick and creamy consistency.

With its protein content, Chobani is the perfect pre- or post-workout recovery fuel.

Can I freeze Chobani?

Yes, frozen Chobani (or FroCHO™ as we like to call it) can be stored for up to three months. While frozen, the live and active cultures present in Chobani become dormant. But once thawed, either in the refrigerator or by your body heat when eaten, they become live and active again.

FroCHO™ will have a slightly different texture, whether eaten frozen or thawed, but makes for a refreshing treat.

Is Chobani Yogurt organic?

Here at Chobani, our goal is to price our products so that everyone, regardless of income, can enjoy our high-quality, good-for-you yogurt that tastes delicious too. As a result, Chobani isn’t organic. Producing it as such would force us to raise our prices, making Chobani accessible to fewer people.

What are “live and active cultures”?

Live and Active Cultures are living organisms, or “cultures,” added to milk to make yogurt.

These are often called “starter cultures” because when added to milk, they convert the milk into yogurt during fermentation. This fermentation process is what creates yogurt, with its unique taste and texture.
