Stonyfield's O'Soy is made with organic soy milk vs. dairy. While we don't add any milk to our O'Soy soy yogurt, the live active cultures in O'Soy are grown in milk. The overall milk content of O'Soy is extremely low. However, because it's in the form of milk protein, if you're highly allergic to dairy, we don't recommend O'Soy. We can still assure you that O'Soy is lactose-free, so folks who are lactose intolerant and not allergic to milk can safely enjoy O'Soy. Stonyfield's traditional yogurts, because of the culturing process, are lower in lactose, but are not lactose-free. Our Oikos Greek yogurt is lowest in lactose because more lactose is removed during the straining process. People with lactose intolerance have varying degrees of intolerance. Some can tolerate yogurt and some can't. Sometimes, because lactose intolerance is the result of a deficit of the lactase enzyme, a lactase supplement can help to tolerate foods that contain lactose.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are you looking for?
Does Stonyfield make a yogurt that is dairy-free for people who are lactose intolerant or who have milk allergies?
How can I figure out calcium content in milligrams rather than percentages for Stonyfield yogurt?
Calcium is the easiest value to figure out on the label. The Daily Value (DV) for Calcium is 1000 mg so simply multiply 1000 by the percent listed on the label. If a label says there is 30%, it means there is 300 mg of calcium. 25% is 250 mg. That's true with any label.
