My all time favourite yogurt!
Does anyone remember all the flavours this yogurt used to come in? Apricot, passionfruit, peach, strawberry, wild berry.. they were SOOOO delicious, just yogurt and real fruit, with a tiny bit of honey I think. They stopped making all the flavours a long time ago but the plain yogurt was still wonderful. Now I can't find it anywhere. Does anyone know how to contact the people who make it? I'd love to contact them and encourage them to keep going! There is no other yogurt like it on the market and most of them are so packed with sugar they are inedible.
Genuine yoghurt: fos, sugar=custard!!
Real yoghurt is just clabbered milk, and should indeed be sour for the right gut bacteria. As soon as you add sugars or fruit juice concentrate you no longer have yoghurt, but rather, just custard - a 'pudding'!! These sugars actually feed the less desirable bacterias, ala Candida!! And people think they're being healthy eating sugared 'yoghurt'. Ha, think again!! Also, 'Greek' yoghurt has far too much fat in it, rendering it hard to digest, or if you suffer the likes of IBS!! (Nor is it sour enough to be classed a clabbered milk; not what pla...insmen like the Cossacks or Genghis Khan's men could've survived on, nor considered GOOD - food!!) Shame, shame, shame on Woolworths & Coles! Suggest we will have to learn to make our own!! Google Natasha Trenev for her book on Authentic (Bulgarian) Yoghurt! (www.Natren.com). Should be an eye opener for those interested further. Works of Bernard Jensen will also prove helpful in this regard. Good Hunting!
Bring back the bornhoffen!!
Have loved the yoghurt for many years - healthy and delicious with a refreshing zing that you don't get these days with most yoghurts just tasting the same kind of sweet. I noticed it was not at my local woolies and was going to check out the nearest coles so am dissappointed to hear it wont be there either. I like Bornhoffen yoghurt more than I like woolies or coles and am going to spend my money accordingly.
Bring Back Bornhoffen
I buy 2 tubs every shop per week for many years. Coles firstly discontinued then bought it back for a short time. Now Woolworths do not stock it. Perhaps these stores want us to buy their own brands - which I refuse to do. I too am searching furiously and next step is to check Dairy Farmers for their stockists. & plead with IGA East Brisbane.
April 6th 2017 Update: Bornhoffen Is Back
My original Bring Back Bornhoffen product review is interesting. In Queensland ask your local IGA and they may oblige. Most Brisbane IGA have been most obl...iging. Agreed this is an acquired taste, less sugar, and is great 'dobbed' in curries. i consume 2 tubs per week on the advice of my surgeon following a bowel resection. I think i now have a most healthy 'gut'. Thanks IGA. September 5th 2017 Update: 2nd UPDATE of my Bring Back Bornhoffen review dated 5 September IGA MILTON is the place to go for Bernhoffen. Very clean shop and most helpful staff at Milton. Thanks to IGA East Brisbane who did trial this product but did not get the sales to continue..
Bye bye Borhoffen.The best natural yoghurt now gone.
Nutritionally supreme and a kitchen all rounder we were very disappointed that we can't get Borhoffen natural yoghurt in Coolum any more. We cooked with it, substitued it for sour cream, smoothied it and just plain enjoyed it. Coles and Woolies say they can't justify it on the shelf anymore. It was a true cultured yoghurt avaiable commercially.We have stocked this product in our fridge for 20 years. Very sad to see it go. We will try to track it down on the Sunshine Coast and post any success.
Loss of another quality product line.
As a regular shopper with Woolies and Coles in Ashgrove I am fed up with quality products such as Bornhoffen Yogurt being dumped from their in store product range. IGA or Aldi will continue to get more of my business until the Duopoly wake up and treat customers needs with respect. Ron
Available at IGA Cleveland
After a long search I have found it available at an IGA store close to me. Prior to that I called Dairy Farmers - the man I spoke with thought that some Woolies stores still carried it (this is not the case) so he suggested I speak to Woolies Customer Service on 1800677852. The woman I spoke with was keen for me to make an 'official' request for it - she said she has had many many people asking for it. I guess they may start to re-stock it if the numbers are great enough. So give them a call people.
Best yoghurt ever made
I can not understand why Coles and now Woolworths have deleted Bornhoffen yogurt. My whole family have been eating it for breakfast for 20 years at least! What is wrong with these 2 supermarkets. When I ask the staff, they say they don't know why it is deleted and that it was always very popular! I hope it keeps being made and I will go to what ever supermarket stocks it.
Questions & Answers
Why is this yoghurt not in stores anymore?
I called dairy farmers and they advised that they ceased to make this product 3 weeks ago due to lack of demand full stop apparently both Coles and Woolworths advise them that the product did not sell. I provided feedback to them that I had always had to ask at my local Woolworths for them to bring the yoghurt from the back of the store as they very rarely replaced it on the shelves. They advised that if demand increased they won't consider making the product again. There's no other yoghurt compares favorably to bornhoffen in my opinion.
As other questions, I have always used Bornhoffen Natural Yoghurt now I can no longer get it in either Coles, Woolworths, or other supermarkets for ages. Researching yoghurts it seems that Bornhoffen comes with a 4 1/2 star nutritional rating beatingo ALL other yoghurts (except one which is a boutique one not readily available anywhere). I want to buy Bornhoffen. Where should I go? Maureen Jefferies
Please tell me when you find out where you can buy Bornhoffen Natural Yoghurt.
I would like to know why Dairy Farmers took it off the market.
From what I have gathered the marketing department of Lions that owns Dairy Farmers have made an uninformed decision to discontinue Bornhoffen yoghurt which beggars belief. Clearly they have little understanding about this Epic product and the point of difference it offers super markets and loyal buyers alike that enjoy the unique healthy characteristics of this product that has been on the market as long as I can remember 20+ yrs. These type of decisions promote junk food type of yoghurts and in the end Australia becoming a nation of obese people like what can be observed in the U.S.
I cannot believe it! This is a decision made by the uninformed and the non-shoppers. Bornhoffen Natural yoghurt was given 4 1/2 out of 5 stars in a health review of 10 other yoghurts and was second on the list behind a boutique make.(unavailable on the general market). Unfortunately the majority of people are 'sugarphiles' (catered for by the majority of yoghurts) hence the obesity. Perhaps the manufacturers need expert opinion on how to market this particular Bornhoffen yoghurt. Yoghurt ain't just any old yoghurt! I think I will boycott all other Dairy Farmer products as obviously producing a healthy product is no9t their main priority. More sugar means more money for the manufacturers, bad health for the consumers!
