Chobani gets shown the door by Whole Foods

  • Whole Foods Market (WFM +0.3%) says it will stop selling Chobani yogurt in order to make more room for organic products without genetically modified organisms.
  • The development is interesting because Chobani is a juggernaut in the hotly-contested Greek yogurt market and frequently mentioned as a buyout or IPO candidate.
  • Danone (DANOY) owns the Stonyfield Farms brand which still makes the Whole Foods cut and could get a nice lift from the yogurt shakeout.
  • Related: Chobani to advertise at Super Bowl in push to go mainstream.

    Chobani has a very high sugar content: up to over 30 grams for 8 oz. Their serving size is 6 oz and has for some varieties 26 grams of
    sugar !! Some Doctor recommendation ask patients to limit sugar to 25 g per day - especially for cancer patients and borderline diabetics.
    One serving provides more sugar grams than whole day recommendations. All the beneficial benefits of probiotics are wiped out by the large amount of sugar feeding potentially bad stomach bacteria. This recommendation came from several naturpathic doctors while battling colitis / IBS - which improved significantly after watching diet and calming nervous system by meditation and yoga !!
