TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
Using only pasteurized milk from farms surrounding their dairy and fromagerie in Machecoul, Beillevaire makes traditional yogurt that is creamy and rich with a satin texture and delicate taste. You may avail of the signature plain yogurt but the latter is also offered enhanced by the addition of berries—both jams and fresh pieces—to the bottom of the pot. It’s all natural and simply delicious, and you get the following flavors to choose from:

All flavors come in sets of 2 pcs per flavor.
PREPARATION OR PAIRINGS
Each cup of this delicious creamy yogurt comes in the perfect snack size for you to enjoy it as is. But if that doesn’t convince you, top it with some fresh berries to add an extra boost of tart sweetness or add in some granola or nuts for a nice little texture crunch. If you’re in a smoothie kind of mood, do pop this yogurt into a blender with a bit of whole milk, banana slices, and more fruit for a rich, delicious drink any time of day!
AN ANCIENT DELIGHT
Yogurt has appeared in many cuisines over the centuries. The Greeks, Romans, and the people of the Indian subcontinent considered yogurt the only safe way of preserving milk for millennia. Genghis Khan of the Mongol Empire was reputed to have fed his army yogurt to make them braver warriors. Yogurt found its way to France in the 16th century when King François I of France was introduced to the dairy product by Turkish allies as a cure for diarrhea. Mixed with honey, cinnamon, and fruit, it eventually became the dessert that we know and love today.
Immediately store your yogurt in the back portion of the fridge, never the door, at 4°C or below. Once out of the fridge, do consume it immediately! Do not leave yogurt at room temperature for more than 2 hours. When stored properly, the shelf-life of yogurt is seven to 14 days.
