Oikos Greek Yogurt

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,

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!

    • Well, I would strongly recommend seeing a doctor (maybe an endo if your PCP is not thyroid savvy, but I have always used my PCP).   Are you sure you had the hypo-related thyroid antibodies tests (3 of them)?     It looks like you are hypothyroid.  You probably need thyroid replacement, but I am not a doctor!    Thyroid replacement will help you feel better.  My TSH is best at around a 1.  Anything over a 5 and I am wearing flannel PJ's and napping.  Ask for a physical examination for your thyroid to check for nodules and enlargement too.  You can be hypo, but not have Hashi's.  Get that endo appointment, if you can.    
    • On a gluten-free diet, my low iron resolved within months with supplementation.    I would ask your doctor to re-check your ferritin levels and antibodies at the three month mark since you can not judge by symptoms.  I would also ask for a bone scan.  I fractured two vertebrae doing NOTHING two months into my celiac disease diagnosis.  Found out I had osteoporosis.   I would think that if you were dairy intolerant, you would experience all the classic symptoms of gas, bloating, etc.  If you are not, I would not worry about dairy.  Not all celiacs are dairy intolerant.   Go eat some cheese!   Follow-up testing recommendations: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/how-often-should-follow-up-testing-occur/
    • Elk is gluten free like all unprocessed meat.  Okay, everyone said that, but extra validation never hurt.    You should ask who butchered it though.    Lots of my family members hunt (yes, they work and are dedicated to the National/Federal Parks and Land, but culling herds is a necessity in time of drought and over population).  Their butcher is local and does not use gluten in their seasonings (e.g. Sausage).  So ask to be safe.  
    • Studies have shown that saturated fats are not unhealthy and are an important part of our diet for hormonal health, don't avoid fats only because they are saturated because they are safe and usually healthy.
    • Thx so much Cycling lady, I appreciate your feedback!. My issue is that I don't have GI issues, just weight loss and low iron. I understand low iron takes ages to fix (I'm on prescription iron) What do you mean each person has to determine what is safe or not. How can I tell? I drank the beer initially and no symptoms but I'm sure my Villi are suffering if this beer isn't good for me. I have stopped drinking it, but concerned about other things. This is one tough disease. People ask me if I'm dairy intolerant, how do I know? I'm worrying about what I don"t know.
