Sheep Yogurt

Sheep Yogurt

Delamere Dairy’s smooth, mild tasting Natural Sheep Yogurt offers similar ‘easy to digest’ qualities as goats’ milk products. The yogurt naturally contains 5g per 100g of protein, nearly twice the amount found in cows’ and goats’ milk, for customers looking for a protein boost as part of a healthy balanced diet.  Sourced from a single herd in Lancashire, our Natural Sheep Yogurt is a great source of vitamins and minerals and comes in a 450g multi serve pot.

It can be used in much the same way as any other natural yogurt, on cereal, with fruit, in sauces, soups and all your favourite recipes.

About our Sheep Yogurt

About our Sheep Yogurt

Our Natural Sheep Yogurt, sourced from a single herd in Lancashire, offers a highly nutritious, smooth and deliciously tasty alternative, particularly for those looking for a protein super boost, as part of a healthy balanced diet. 

Our Natural Sheep Yogurt is free from artificial ingredients. Available in a 450g pot, it’s perfect for breakfast (extra healthy with a fresh fruit topping), a midday snack (served with a sprinkling of seeds and nuts) or in the evening in a savoury sauce, as an accompaniment with a curry, or as a supper-time dessert (chef Nigel Slater makes a delicious Lemon sheep’s yogurt ice cream with nut crumble).

 

 

50% more protein!

Sheep milk, from which sheep yogurt is made, contains almost 50% more protein than cows’ or goats’ milk; and a protein-rich diet can help increase feelings of fullness, thereby reducing appetite and decreasing calorie intake. Protein is an essential building block to cell growth and regeneration, it is needed to keep blood circulating, skin regenerating, muscles repairing and bones strong.

While sheep milk is higher in total fat than cows’ milk, it is lower in saturated fat and richer in vitamins A, B and E, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, and magnesium.

High source of vitamin D

Sheep milk is also a high source of vitamin D and with 1 in 5 adults and 1 in 6 children in England having low levels of vitamin D, Delamere Dairy’s sheep yogurt is a great addition to the family diet. Vitamin D is also required for calcium absorption in the body, so the high levels of both of these essential vitamins and minerals in sheep milk products make sheep yogurt a more natural choice than taking dietary supplements.

Easy to Digest

Like goats’ milk, sheep milk is also easier to digest than cows’ milk as the fat globules in sheep milk are smaller than in cows’, so the human digestive enzymes can complete their breakdown much more rapidly. The proteins also form a softer curd in the stomach which helps digestion.
