Adorable little girl eating delicious Tillamook Raspberry Yogurt

If you’ve ever tried Tillamook Yogurt you know that it tastes better, but how is Tillamook Yogurt actually made better?

Well, in most cases people don’t like hearing the word “NO”. However, I think we found the exception! When it comes to Tillamook Yogurt, you’re going love hearing the word “NO”…

NO artificial colors or flavors
NO artificial sweeteners
NO high-fructose corn syrup
NO artificial growth hormones
YES delicious!

You might remember from our last conversation about how Tillamook Cheese is “made better,” that Tillamook is committed to only using the highest quality milk from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones*.

Tillamook Yogurt is no exception.

The same quality milk standards used for our award winning cheeses are also used to make our delicious yogurt (and the rest of our dairy products, for that matter).

It’s simple! Our 21 delicious flavors of Tillamook Yogurt are “made better” because we take out the unnecessary “stuff” you don’t want (aka: artificial colors, flavors and sweeteners) and put in the great tasting natural ingredients (aka: vanilla beans, real berries, yogurt cultures) you do want!

Tell us what your favorite “made better” Tillamook Yogurt flavor is!

*The FDA has stated that no significant difference has been shown between milk derived from rBST treated and non-rBST treated cows.



While I love that you don't have any high-fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners or anything else in your yogurt, it is really high in sugar (more than 15 grams per container!). It would be really great if you could find a way to bring down the sugars to something more reasonable so that it could be enjoyed more regularly.

My kids had no preferences in yogurt brands until Tillamook came home. Now it is Tillamook or nothing! We love the vanilla bean, the Oregeon strawberry, lemon and mixedberry, blueberry is great, Marionberry is awesome, aw heck - all your flavors are wonderful!

Is tillamook yoghurt vegetarian?since we do not consume eggs/gelatin etc?

Hi Varuna!

Thanks so much for your comment! As of now, Tillamook does use a gelatin in the yogurt that is animal derived. The gelatin gives it a smooth texture, and prevents the yogurt from separating and becoming runny. Tillamook has been unable to find a non-gelatin stabilizer that maintains the texture our consumers love. Many of the Tillamook Cheese flavors you have come to love ARE vegetarian and I hope you continue to enjoy them!

What animal is the gelatin from?

Hi Brenda,
The gelatin in Tillamook Yogurt is derived from cattle. I hope that answers your question!

I've been recommended to eat a diet that includes yogurt that has 'live and active cultures'. Does Tillamook yogurt (original and/or lite) meet that standard? I know you're not on this list but I also realize that this may not be all inclusive:

Hi Tina,

Thanks for the question! All of the cultures in our Light and Low Fat Yogurts are live and active. The specific cultures are listed in the ingredients list. I hope this is helpful!

Your yogurt is very delicious, but why is the amount of sugar per serving so high? The vanilla bean flavor has almost 5 teaspoons of sugar per 6 oz serving. That seems very high to me. Would love to see the same flavors, in the regular, not light yogurt, with less sugar.

Hi Dawny,

Thanks for reaching out to us! I’ll be sure to pass on your request to the product development team. If you love the Low Fat Vanilla Bean flavor, but are looking for less sugar, you might be interested in the Light Vanilla Bean flavor, which has 16g of sugars. Have you checked the Where to Buy page to see if you can find it close to you?

Does your yogurt have carrageenen in it?

February 3rd, 2014 at 10:16 am

Tillamook Team

Hi Michele,

Thanks for asking! None of our yogurt contains carageenan. In fact, none of our yogurt contains any artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors, or growth hormones. If you'd like to see the ingredients for each flavor, please see our product pages. I hope this is helpful!

I need to eat more active live yogurt cultures. My favorite Tillamook yogurt is low fat Berry Patch. Do all of your yogurts contain active live yogurt culture?

Hi Jean,

Yep it tastes better because there are 31 grams of sugar per container. Just go eat like 6 teaspoons of straight sugar and you'll get the same effect. Gross. I would rather feed my children and family something healthy. I wish I could support a local brand, but unfortunately they don't leave you much choice!

Hi Christina,
Thanks for taking the time to leave your honest feedback with us here on the Tillamook blog. I think you'll be happy to hear that we're working on a new recipe that will reduce the overall grams of sugar and eliminate modified corn starch and gelatin. The new recipe will be even creamier and yummier than the current lowfat yogurt. Our goal is to get this new recipe to stores in early 2016.

All the best,
Amalya of the Tillamook team
