Idaho Company Uses Greek Yogurt for Flavored Salad Dressings

February 28, 2021

Greeks put olive oil on their salads and maybe a little vinaigrette and rightfully turn their noses up at the concoctions in American supermarkets posing as salad dressings, most of them filled with preservatives and names of chemicals.

Now an Idaho company, Litehouse, is offering Purely Balanced, a new line of Greek yogurt-based refrigerated salad dressings with only 45 calories per serving and no added sugar.

They also come in five flavors: Garden Ranch, Tzatziki Ranch, Garlic Caesar, Cilantro Lime, and Basil Lemon, touching further on its Greek theme, borrowing from the community's know-how.

“We know that today’s consumer is more conscious about the food they consume and seeking products that fit with their lifestyle and diet,” said Krystle Turnbull, Product manager for Litehouse Purely Balanced, reported FoodBusinessNews.

“We developed these everyday dressings to help consumers meet some of their dietary preferences and restrictions without sacrificing a delicious eating experience.”

The company said its Greek yogurt-based products are glute-free and don't contain high fructose corn syrup or artificial colors, flavors, preservatives or sweeteners and come in nine-ounce plastic squeeze bottles. They might even win over Greek-Americans.


He's in Austin, Texas for now but Nick Nanakos thinks his ZIKI – short  for tzatziki – concept for restaurants could become a template for the world in the industry and he even got investors from Tesla owner Elon Musk's backers.
