There are no dangers from growth hormones with this yogurt. It has low sugar content and is 1/3 lower in sodium when compared to leading yogurt brands. Calories in the sheep milk full fat yogurt are similar to most low fat yogurts on the market and has significantly fewer calories than full fat cow milk yogurts. It is gluten free. Sheep milk is higher in total solids than cow or goat milk, resulting in a natural, thick creamy yogurt made with only milk and active cultures.
