Kosher Non-Dairy Almond Dream low-fat yogurt lined labeled OU D?

cappucino Jun 20, 2013 07:27 AM

I just saw these. Don't know if it's old news. The line includes mixed berry, vanilla, strawberry and coconut. It did not say DE so I don't understand why it is being labeled D. Does anyone know? I will also try to find out.

    OU doesn't give a DE certification.

      Yes, if something is made on dairy equipment, the OU will label it OU-D even if it contains no dairy at all. You can email them to ask what's really DE (eg most Haagen-Dasz sorbets, Oreo cookies).

        Specifically, the normal Oreos and Double Stuf. The OU won't commit to anything other than those two varieties being DE.

          They won't commit even to that, since it could change at any time. All they'll tell you when you ask is that *at the moment* these two varieties contain only pareve ingredients, and are D only because of the equipment they're made on.

            I had wanted to make a "yogurt sauce" for grilled chicken with these yogurts.

              If I recall correctly, I have seen totally parve yogurts. I think they are coconut milk based. If it helps, I would have seen them in Fairway (Douglaston).

                Thank you. I will look for them. I tasted the Almond Dream. Not a fan.
