Is Labneh healthy?
Of course Labneh is healthy. And! You can safely eat labneh when pregnant. But in the Zuivelarij, taste is our main concern. The nutritional value of our labneh consists mainly of proteins, fats, minerals and vitamins. For people with lactose intolerance there is good news: Labneh contains very little lactose because the milk is almost completely acidified during the production process.
And there is even more good news: because the milk is pasteurized you can safely eat our Labneh if you are pregnant.
We make our Labneh with full fat sheep’s milk. Sheep’s milk naturally contains already a lot of nutrients.
The best possible Labneh
When it comes to making our products better, in the Zuivelarij we are not averse to technological aids. Our Labneh contains a small amount of the completely safe potassium sorbate, a preservative against fungi and yeasts that occurs in nature in the rowan berry.

Source of proteins and fats
Even more than yogurt – because it’s concentrated! – Labneh is an excellent source of proteins and fats. The nutritional value of labneh is also in the vitamins and minerals such as B12 and calcium. In addition, our labneh has less lactose than yogurt, because it acidifies longer. Our labneh is vegetarian, but not vegan.
If you eat our Labneh with vegetables, fresh herbs and bread then you immediately eat a full-fledged and healthy meal.
