I saw Oikos (Stonyfield Farms) yogurts for the first time at a local store yesterday. Since I have had trouble with Dannon yogurt in the past and don't care too much for most Yoplait, I emailed Stonyfield Farms. Not one hour after I emailed them, I got this:



Hello Monica,

Thanks for contacting us about our gluten-free products. We know that
choosing foods can be difficult for those with celiac disease, and well
try to make it a little easier for you.

Yes, our Organic Oikos Greek yogurt is certified gluen free. All of our
products (except YoBaby Plus Fruit & Cereal, YoKids Squeezers, and our
Frozen Yogurt and Ice Cream) are certified gluten-free. Our certification
tells folks with gluten intolerance (celiac disease) that they can enjoy
these yogurts without worry. All of our gluten-free products have a small
Certified Gluten-Free Symbol printed on the container (on the side or back
panel of cups and smoothies, and on the top of the multipacks.)

About GFCO Certification:
GFCOs gluten-free certification assures that a product contains less than
10 parts per million (ppm) of gluten (5 ppm of gliadin) and similar
proteins from rye and barley as measured by testing methods accepted by
analytical associations such as the Association of Analytical Communities.

Before certifying our yogurts, GFCO reviewed our recipes, ingredients, and
testing procedures, and conducted a thorough on-site inspection. We also
remain subject to future, unannounced GFCO inspections.

The GFCO was developed in cooperation with the Orthodox Union (OU), the
worlds largest and oldest kosher certification agency. The OU uses nearly
500 field representatives all proficient in modern food production
techniques and chemical and biological processes to conduct plant
inspections and product reviews for the GFCO.

Were always happy to get comments and questions from our yogurt lovers, so
thanks again for contacting us!

Sincerely,

The folks at Stonyfield

Yeah that was kind of the trouble. It was one of those products that, right after my diagnosis, I figured couldn't have gluten in it... then I sent an email and found out that most flavors did in fact have gluten. Now I've gotten in the habit of emailing or calling when in doubt.

After receiving this email I did try vanilla flavored Oikos... it was good (but not as good as Chobani)! :)

I wanted to thank you for your post about Oikos Greek yogurt.  I bought it for the first time and could not find the gluten-free symbol. 

So I called Dannon (877-326-6668) and learned that there are 3 divisions of Oikos,  Stonyfield and Dannon greek yogurts are both

gluten free,  Not sure about the 3rd division.  My concern was that in southern California, Oikos yogurt is not marked gluten free.

The nice voice at Dannon told me that they got their gluten free cert a few months ago but the packaging hasn't caught up yet.

That was good enough for me. 

Thanks again.

Oikos yoghurt is definitely gluten-free.  I have been eating it for a long time and I am very sensitive.  The gluten-free symbol is extremely small and easily missed but it's there.

They have a caramel flavor that is vanilla with a caramel based bottom......tastes just like creme brulee.  Yum!
