Maia Yogurt Review

Hi Guys. Such a beautiful day in New England today. I can hear the peepers as I am writing. Love that sound.

Liz, the Marketing manager at Maia Yogurt contacted me a few weeks back and asked if I would like a sample of Maia Yogurts. Liz was super enthusiastic about the product she was promoting. I could feel her passion about Maia through her e-mail. Her enthusiasm really made me want to try and like the product.

 

Here was how Liz described the yogurt in her e-mail.

“I wanted to take a minute to introduce you to Maia Yogurt, a new, local Greek Yogurt startup.  We are a small business hoping to introduce the health conscious greater Boston community to our product.  We feel Maia is the nutritional answer for anyone seeking to eat healthy and helps you feel great as well!   “

Maia is:

* A less sweet Greek Yogurt with only 2-4g of added cane sugar and real fruit blended in

* All-natural, Non-GMO, and pesticide free

* Crafted with hormone & antibiotic free, grass-fed cow’s milk

* Packed with 25+ billion Probiotics Mothers & their Families Need

* Filled with 3 grams of prebiotic dietary oat fiber

 

Although I am not a huge Greek Yogurt fan I said sure. I have been trying to eat it more because I know how good it is for you. I also like that they are a small business trying to get a start in being healthy.

About a week later Liz actually dropped off about a half dozen yogurts herself to my house for me to try! At home delivery at its finest! I wasn’t expecting a house call but it was cool that she took the time herself and dropped them off. I wasn’t home at the time, but I wish I was so I could have met her.

This week I sampled the Pineapple flavor yogurt. It definitely wasn’t that sweet and it had a mild pineapply flavor. I liked the flavor and I did like that it wasn’t overly sweet, but I might have liked a little bit more pineapple flavor. Now keep in mind I don’t love Greek Yogurt so I like to have the flavor of something to offset Greek Yogurt’s tanginess. I didn’t want to add anything to it because I wanted to get the full flavor of the yogurt.

The consistency was a little thinner than a normal Greek Yogurt. That was ok as sometimes the thickness of Greek Yogurt turns me off. If it is too much like wallpaper paste I can’t get past it. Maia definitely was not.

All in all I liked the yogurt. I would recommend this to anyone who wanted less sugar in their yogurt and a healthier Greek Yogurt.

    Huge fan. I got a big pile of coupons from the company and a couple of tee shirts with a handwritten note! Every time I go to my local market I leave a few of those coupons on the shelf next to the Maia.

    I just tried your pineapple greek yogurt and it was really good…however i expected more to be in the cup..i was dissappointed in that..but over all.. you have a great tasting yogurt and will ccontinue to buy it…keep up the good work…

    Yechh! I had a coupon & tried the blueberry & the pineapple flavors but they were both chalky & nasty. The fruit is pureed & mixed in. Lowfat plain yogurt with fruit mixed in tastes much better The best about this yogurt is the low sugar & the many varied live cultures. While I applaud them being GMO & all the flavor & texture needs major improvement.

  4. Dawn Morgan says:

    I agree with Donna…yuk!! I tried the vanilla, and also found it to be chalky and gross. I also really disliked the thin consistensy…to me, Greek yogurt should be thick and creamy, or what’s the point?! No other greek yogurts are superior to Fage, my favorite. Won’t be buying this brand again!!

  5. V Meinzer says:

    Thickening the yogurt with oat flour may be a cheaper way to get the density of Greek, but since it just leaves wet oat dust in the product, the smooth creaminess of Greek is lost to the pasty feel one would expect from flour mixed in.

    Yes, I know that they don’t call it oat flour, they call it oat fiber, but same thing. And calling it “probiotic” means nothing other than marketing hype.

    I’m not against fiber in yogurt, but if I want it I will mix in cereal or wheat germ or something nicer to eat than wet oat flour.

    Nasty stuff, made on the cheap with marketing hype. Not again.,

  6. Love the website– very user friendly and whole lots to see!|
