FAQ

We are happy to answer any questions you might have about our products, here
are a few of those most frequently asked, but if yours isn’t here please feel free
to leave us a comment in the contact section.

What’s the sugar content in your yoghurts?
The sugar content in our yoghurt varies from flavour to flavour but we strive to always keep it as
low as possible. For example, our Raspberry yoghurt contains 8.7g of sugar per 100g, and our
natural yoghurt contains 3.7g per 100g. Most of the sugar is naturally occurring in the forms of
lactose in the milk, and fructose from the fruit. However, we do typically add a maximum of 5%
sugar to our fruit yoghurts to ensure a great taste.

Do you have sugar free yoghurts?
Yes, our natural range contains absolutely no added sugar. This range currently includes Natural
Live Yoghurt, Natural Live Yoghurt with Seeds, and Natural Live Yoghurt with Seeds & Fruit.

Do you have dairy free yoghurts?
All our yoghurts are made with dairy milk.
How much calcium is in your yoghurt?
Typically, our natural yoghurt contains 120mg calcium per 100g yoghurt. This means a 125g
portion of our natural yoghurt contains almost 20% of an adult’s recommended daily intake
of calcium.

Are your products gluten free?
All our yoghurts are gluten free. However, they are made in the same factory as our cheesecakes
which contain wheat, and therefore we do not specifi cally say gluten free on our packaging.

Do any of your products contain nuts?
No, our factory is a nut free area.

Are all your products pasteurised?
Every dairy product produced on the farm is pasteurised.

Are your products safe for pregnant women?
Yes, all our products are completely safe for pregnant women, as our milk is pasteurised
before use.

How is yoghurt made?
Healthy live bacteria are added to our pasteurised milk and then incubated at a specifi c
temperature to allow the bacteria to covert the lactose into lactic acid, which thickens the milk
and transforms it into yoghurt.

Is your yoghurt organic?
Our products are not organic, but they are all made with local Irish milk from grass fed cows.

Where is Glenilen Farm?
Glenilen Farm is located in the rolling hills of West Cork, Ireland, just outside the small
village of Drimoleague.

Is Glenilen Farm a real farm?
Yes, in fact a lot more happens on Glenilen Farm aside from just making yummy yoghurts and
dairy products. It is a hive of activity with pigs, chickens, dogs, cats, gardens, vegetable patches
and much more!

Are your cows grass fed?
We get all our milk from grass fed cows in the local area. The cows are free to roam in the
Summer months grazing the green grass that West Cork has to offer and are kept indoors during
the very cold parts of the year and fed grass in the form of silage.

Where can I buy your yoghurt?
In Ireland, our yoghurts are available in SuperValu, Tesco, Dunnes Stores, Spar, Centra, and
a wide selection of other shops. In the UK, you will fi nd us in Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Ocado,
Wholefoods and again a selection of other independent stores and farm shops.

Can I buy your yoghurt outside of UK/Ireland?
Although we do occasionally supply to stores outside of Ireland and the UK, at the moment
most of our business remains in these areas. However, we do hope to expand in the future.

Can you freeze your cheesecakes?
We know that some of our customers regularly freeze our cheesecakes and they are perfectly
safe to consume after freezing. However, we do not recommend freezing as we feel the texture
of the product is just not as nice when defrosted.

What are the black bits in your M&P cheesecake/yoghurt?
We often get queries as to what the black bits are in our mango & passion fruit products, and
they are in fact, passion fruit seeds. They add a crunch to this particular fl avour and we feel they
really contribute to the authenticity of the product.

How can I get the cheesecake out of the packaging?
Many people don’t realise that our cheesecake packaging actually has a push up base making
it easy to get the dessert out of the packaging in one piece. The handiest way to do this is to
remove the outer sleeve and fi lm covering the top of the cheesecake, before sitting the dessert
on top of a cup or can. Then, simply push down gently on the sides of the packaging and you
should be left with a free-standing cheesecake. Remove the plastic disk from the bottom of the
cheesecake and you can easily pretend that you made the dessert from scratch!

Can I recycle your packaging?
All of our packaging is recyclable. It’s made with either glass, paper or plastic. The type of
plastic we use is stated on every item we sell. Our large yoghurt pots, for example, are made
using PP5 plastic which is one of the safest and most recommended for food storage.

What does ‘live’ mean?
Live cultures refer to the micro-organisms found in foods such as yoghurt, which are benefi cial
for human health. These living organisms convert pasteurized milk to yoghurt during
fermentation.

What live cultures does our yoghurt contain?
Lactobacillus Acidophilius and Bifi dobacterium Lactis
Are live cultures the same as probiotics?
Probiotics are a type of live culture, but live cultures are not always probiotic. The cultures used
in our yoghurt are probiotic

What are some benefi ts of consuming live yoghurt?
• Helps digestion
• Boosts immunity
• Lower cholesterol
• Source of protein
• Rich source of calcium (the live cultures further help absorption of calcium already found in dairy).
