What is Oui?
Oui is a French style yogurt by Yoplait that is made with simple ingredients like whole milk and real fruit that are poured and set in each glass pot. The recipe is inspired by our traditional French recipe. With a unique, thick and creamy texture, real fruit on the bottom and subtly sweet, fresh taste, Oui brings a new offering and experience to the yogurt aisle.
What makes French style yogurt “French style”?
It isn’t just one thing, it’s our holistic approach to French style yogurt. It starts with simple ingredients like whole milk and real fruit, artfully poured and set in individual glass pots for eight hours. This creates a satisfyingly thick, subtly sweet, fresh tasting yogurt and a moment of pure enjoyment in every spoonful.
Is Oui by Yoplait French Style Yogurt considered Greek?
No, French Style Yogurt differs from Greek yogurt in many respects. Therefore, it is not considered Greek-style yogurt.
How is French Style different than Greek Yogurts?
French Style Yogurt is made in a different way and yields a different texture than Greek style yogurt. Greek yogurt is made by extensively straining the yogurt to remove much of the liquid, giving it its thick consistency. French Style yogurt is made by starting with simple ingredients and pouring them directly into the pot and letting them set for 8 hours. The milk turns into yogurt via the fermenting/culturing process, giving the yogurt its thick consistency.
What is the right way to eat Oui?
Oui is best experienced without stirring to enjoy the unique, thick and creamy texture. It is made to be enjoyed slowly. We encourage consumers to dig in with their spoon and get some yogurt and just the right amount of fruit from the bottom to enjoy the full Oui experience.
Does Oui by Yoplait offer blended yogurt?
Yes, Oui has five blended flavors: Vanilla, Honey, Maple, Raspberry and Blackberry.
Can the cups be recycled?

Can I reuse the glass pot?

Does it have corn starch?

Q: Can I eat Dairy Free Oui if I have a dairy sensitivity? / Q. Is Dairy Free Oui made on a line that also produces dairy?
Though our ingredients are inherently dairy free, we don’t rely on that alone. We have a very rigorous process in place to ensure our Oui Dairy Alternative is dairy free. These process controls span from the ingredient suppliers through the finished product. We work with each of our suppliers to confirm there is no cross contamination at their manufacturing plant or in the storage or transportation of the ingredients. In addition, we employ rigorous processes in our own manufacturing plants. Although the product is currently produced in a manufacturing plant that also produces dairy products, the Oui Dairy Alternative manufacturing plant has robust allergen programs with validated cleaning practices, pre-start-up inspections, and testing on the finished product for the presence of dairy. With these controls in place we are confident that our products are dairy free.
Q: Is dairy free yogurt better for you?
Dairy free yogurts offer a solution for those who are lactose intolerant, have a dairy allergy or who may be eliminating dairy as part of a weight loss regimen or plant-based diet. The nutrition of dairy free yogurt in the market varies. Some dairy free yogurts have been fortified to have similar nutrition to dairy yogurt through the addition of calcium and vitamin D. Some may have additional vitamins added like vitamin B12. Calories and fat will vary depending on the type of dairy free yogurt – an almond based yogurt may have a different nutrient profile versus an oat based yogurt. However, some products do not have the same nutrition as dairy and; therefore, may not be a replacement for dairy unless the consumer has a dairy allergy or is lactose intolerant.
If you have a question about whether dairy free yogurt is right for you or your family, please consult with your healthcare provider.
