Ingredients / Additives
Milk, and therefore yoghurt, naturally contains lactose (milk sugar).
Our natural yoghurts have no added sugar, so they are unsweetened. They are available in 400g pots and 125g pots. The natural yoghurts are a wonderful alternative for all those who would like to do without sugar or sweeten them according to their own preferences or who would like to spice up the yoghurts themselves with fruit.
Likewise, no sugar is added to the milk and curd.
The fruit yoghurts are sweetened with organic beet sugar.
Yes, the live bacterial cultures are added after pasteurisation. They take care of the acidification process and remain in the product until the end of the best-before date.
Streptococcus Thermophilus and the lactobacilli Bulgaricus, Bifidus and Acidophilus.
Pasteurisation is necessary for product quality and especially for product safety.
Our products naturally contain calcium. We do not add calcium.
Sheep's milk contains about 198 mg and goat's milk about 127 mg calcium/100 ml.

Leeb Vital sheep and goat yoghurts contain the following probiotic cultures:
Lactobacillus Bulgaricus, Bifidus and Acidophilus.

The filling lines for our products are currently specialised for filling in plastic and are not suitable for glass as a packaging type. We recognise that packaging is environmentally problematic and presents a major challenge in addressing our environmental issues.
However, the issue of packaging is very complex and there is simply no such thing as the "most sustainable packaging" - opinions on the "most environmentally friendly material or system" vary widely. In addition, a deposit system for glass packaging of milk and yoghurt (alternatives) is currently hardly developed in Austria, and alternative packaging materials are often only in development or still in the test phase.
The decision to change our packaging is not an easy one and must be well considered, because it involves a system change in production as well as changes in other processes such as logistics.
However, we can assure you that we are dealing with the issue on a daily basis and are looking for a long-term solution in order to design our product portfolio for the future in accordance with all aspects of sustainability - social, ecological and economic.
