Muller yogurt, Quaker Oats

HillJ Aug 18, 2012 05:55 AM


I haven't seen this new product on the shelves yet. 3 yogurt styles, 16 flavors.

Has anyone tried it?

        Wow, I had no idea. And the heading of the other thread would have been hard to find w/out the mention of the yogurt brand in the subject title so thank you for linking it here.

              I think I said something like "People may be lazy to click on the thread Steph...apparently the yogurt contains tilapia"

                LOL..oh the horror. I didn't see that comment but I also didn't know about the gelatin. I would consider that an odd choice in ingredients for yogurt as well.

          Tried the Greek style, two compartment container...apricot flavor. Not as tangy as Fage, but the fruit "goo" was good. I still like Fage better.

            Apparently the tilapia removes some of the tang factor.

            As far as I can see, the "Frutup" product appears to be made just for the American market. We don't seem to have the product here in Europe (unless under a different name and packaging).

              I've never seen Frutup here in Italy, but I am totally hooked on Müllers yogurt so ran to the fridge to read the ingredients. Nothing remotely like tilapia or even gelatin (though admittedly I didn't use a magnifying glass to read the tiny print). In any case, this is the first time I've heard of Müller in the US, and believe me, I look every time I go, nor have I found a US yogurt anywhere near as yummy (sorry, it's the only word). I believe they are introducing other yogurt-like products here, but I haven't been paying attention. Next time I go to the supermarket, I'll read all the ingredients.

                the comment made to me on our last trip home to the US "Mom -- this yogurt is CRAP. If we ever move back, you have to get a yogurt maker"

                Made me laugh -- but none of it is wrong. And I will, if we go back.

                  I have Type 2 diabetes and the "Light" yoghurts are one of two brands (the other being Weightwatchers) that have a sugar content that fits my diet. And they're rather tasty too and always on offer at the supermarket. I've also recently discovered "Rice", accidently putting it in my trolley instead of Light - really nice, except the sugar is a bit high at 13g per 100.

                  "Light" isnt suitable for vegetarians - it's the gelatine.

                I found Muller yogurt all 3 styles on the dairy shelf at Stop & Shop today. Gelatin is definately included in the label of ingredients but I did not see the word : talapia.

                I didn't buy any this trip but I'll likely take one for the team soon.

                  You all know that gelatin is more typically made from cow hooves, horn, and skin, right?

                  There are some gelatins made from agar-agar (seaweed) -- but most gelatin is made from inedible bits.

                  Not sure which is better -- hooves and horns, or fish....

                    Yeah, I recognize that all sorts of interesting stuff winds up in various foods. I'm not a fan of yogurt with gelatin in it at all usually but I'm willing to try just about any brand ONCE to learn for myself.

                      I'm with you -- I avoid it, just because I don't like jello-textured yogurt.

                  Fruit Up is actually very good. The whole tilapia issue is ridiculous--they use trace amounts of fish-based gelatin (as opposed to beef-based gelatin) to the fruit mousse to make it set. It doesn't taste like fish, just like "regular" gelatin wouldn't make it taste like beef or seaweed.

                  Having the fruit on top as a mousse is almost a revelation--isn't that the part most of us love anyway? For previous posters, no it doesn't have the consistency of Jell-O, it's a smooth, airy fruit puree that is slightly set so you don't get that icky yogurt-water on top. My favorite flavors are raspberry and peach passionfruit. Try it!

                    I did try it and I didn't like the texture. I also tried Chobani Flip in Chocolate Raspberry and dislike that even more-super sweet.

                    I just had the "frütup" (very German with the ümlaut, you know?) from my local Stop and Shop today and loved it. There is no tilapia in the ingredients label. It just says in the warning at the bottom that it contains tilapia.

                    The mousse is smooth, and conceptualizing the frütup as a dessert made it better! I had the "luscious lemon" and it tasted like a lemon tart without the crust.
