As food science advances, a very common and important question that is often asked, and should be asked is ‘What’s in our food?’ As consumers, we would all like to know exactly what we are purchasing. As a mom, I know that having food labels that are clear and honest would make me feel a lot better about what I am feeding my family.

With all of this being said, progress is being made, specifically Dannon’s yogurt is striving to make changes because they care about what we consumers think.


Dannon Pledges to Help You #KnowYourYogurt Better


I love yogurt. My family loves yogurt. I enjoy Dannon’s Fruit at-the-Bottom cups while my kids enjoy Danimals. As healthy and harmless as yogurt may seem, it too can be made with questionable ingredients. That is one of the many reasons why Dannon has committed themselves to be better.

Dannon has pledged to move some of its top selling brands such as Dannon, Danimals, and Oikos toward being made without genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Dannon recognizes that most cow feed has GMOs and so they have begun working to get non-GMO feed planted. As soon as cows are being fed non-GMO feed then the mentioned Dannon brands will be made with the GMO free milk. Dannon is the first yogurt brand to commit to transitioning to non-GMO ingredients. They have pledged to have all Dannon brand products made with non-GMO ingredients by the end of 2017.

It is comforting to know that Dannon cares about families. Even though they genuinely believe that the GMOs are safe, they listened to us as we asked for more non-GMO products and decided to make the change.

As I mentioned earlier, we have what the labels tell us. We want labeling to be clear and honest so that we can make informed decisions about the foods that we put into our shopping carts at the grocery store. Dannon recognizes this and respects us as the consumers who support them, and that is why they have also committed to honestly labeling all of their products with or without GMOs by December 2017.

With their actions, Dannon has really showed that they care about what we think as consumers. Thank You Dannon.
