As you might have noticed we at KARIKAAS have launched a totally new label for our range of Fresh Products and to mark the occasion South Island stores selling the products will be offering them at special prices.
The new label will have a distinctive 'wave', as shown below, and will also display the number of 'Health Stars' the Ministry for Primary Industries has awarded to the product. Health Star Ratings have been designed for most packaged foods and will have a top rating of 5.
Packaged foods are given a number of stars based on:
- the overall amount of energy they supply
- their saturated fat, sodium (salt) and sugar levels
- the quantity of healthy nutrients and ingredients they contain (fibre, protein, fruit, vegetable, nut and legume).
Foods that are low in saturated fat, sugar or sodium (salt), or high in fibre, protein, fruits, vegetables, nuts or legumes will have more stars. The more stars, the healthier the food.
The KARIKAAS team is very proud that it has done extremely well with the number of stars that each of its yoghurt products have been awarded. The following ratings have been awarded to KARIKAAS Yoghurt:
The fruit used in KARIKAAS Fruit Yoghurts is 100% New Zealand grown and sourced directly from Barkers of Geraldine. The only sugar that is added to the Natural yoghurt comes from the fruit pulp.
KARIKAAS' yoghurt is not only very tasty, it also contains ''probiotics''. Probiotic, which literally means ''for life,'' refers to living organisms that can result in a health benefit when eaten in adequate amounts.
We would love you to call in to the KARIKAAS Cheese factory shop in Loburn and our friendly staff will help you sample our Yoghurts, and of course also our cheeses.
All five yoghurts can be ordered directly from our website: www.karikaas.co.nz
- Fruit Yoghurt - 3.5 health stars
- Natural Yoghurt - 4 health stars
- Low Fat Yoghurt - 5 health stars
