Q: Why is White Mountain Foods yogurt so tart?

A: The high level of beneficial bacteria present and the lengthy incubation period causes the tart flavor of our yogurt. Specifically, the bacteria consume lactose in the milk and produces lactic acid, hence the acidic tart flavor. Traditional yogurt is tart. The modern yogurt industry has altered yogurt to obtain a more marketable taste and consistency. Mild yogurt coupled with added sweeteners, stabilizers and thickeners have produced a much more widely acceptable tasting product. Modern yogurt has become more of a pudding or ice cream like dessert instead of a staple food product.
