Solgurt (Dairy Free Soy Yogurt) – Kosher Parve

Being lactose intolerant, I’m always on the look out for dairy alternatives and have tried many different soy based yogurt alternatives over the years. So when I spotted Solgurt from Sol Cusine a dairy free cultured soy product from a brand I had never tried before I decided to give it a try.

I purchased the unsweetened natural style in the 680g container instead of something in the smaller single serving size containers because it was just a better deal and there were no flavored ones available in the larger container available at the store.

To be fair, I’ve never been a fan of just plain natural yogurts so when I open it up and gave it a taste I was a bit taken back. The taste was very sharp and I started to wonder if it had gone bad on me. I then remembered, that it was suppose to taste like natural yogurt which in essence is sour milk. For my taste buds, I couldn’t eat it in its natural state (I’m sure some people would just love it), so I quickly added a couple of tablespoons of maple syrup and mixed it in. The result was something much more pleasing to my tastes.

So now, I’ll be experimenting with adding different fruits and flavors to to my Solgurt to find the one I like the best.

To Sol Cusine’s credit this product comes with with 7 Active Probiotic Cultures and PrebioticInulin (Chicory Fibre) making it an extra healthy item on my table. Being dairy free (Parve) means it is a great option for vegans plus if I find a meat recipe that calls for “yogurt” I now have a parve alternative.

Overall I’d give it 3.5 out 5 in the natural version and 4.5 once you add your own flavors.

I’m also curious of how good their flavored varieties taste.
