iögo: Resealable Yogurt Pouches Review

Diana Chan April 7, 2016 product


iögo has introduced their new resealable yogurt pouches.

One problem I hate about buying yogurt is that there can be excess waste especially if you buy the individual cups. All that plastic ending up in the trash. Larger tubs are an alternative, but because of the large lids, I’ve been known to be a bit clumsy and had it spill all over the counter. To ease all that, iögo created these pouches to solve that problem.

Imagine a super large drinkable pouch of yogurt. The shape is pliable so you can really squeeze it in a small crevasse in the fridge. The spout is small and resealable, so the yogurt will last longer. The whole pouch is recyclable too.

I’ve had their brand of yogurt since they first launched a few years ago. It’s available at most major grocery stores, the price is good, and tastes good.

The pouches come in:

  • iögo Original in Vanilla and Strawberry.
    This is their original line of creamy yogurts.
  • iögo Probio in Vanilla and Strawberry.
    This probiotic yogurt has 25% less sugar than the original flavours.
  • iögo Greek in Vanilla 2% and Plain 0%
    This thick and creamy yogurt has 18g proteins per serving of 175g.

You can easily just squirt the yogurt into the bowl and eat, but because these pouches are big, you can make a few easy treats with them.

Below are a few ways that I enjoy eating yogurt.

Morning Breakfast


I like to keep it simple especially in the morning since I have no brain cells to whip up anything special. Less ingredients the better.

I like their iögo Original or the iögo Probio as a morning snack as it is sweet enough. I personally prefer my yogurt a little sweet.


I pour out the Strawberry yogurt into the small 4oz mason jars and then add granola, chia seeds, and pistachios. Just some added texture to give it a nice crunch.

Very simple and if you are in a hurry, you can screw on the lid and take it to work.

M husband on the other hand likes his yogurt plain with no added toppings to it.

Mango Lassi


With the iögo Greek plain flavour, as it is not sweet, it goes well with blended drinks. Plain Greek yogurt is hard for me to eat alone, so creating an easy mango lassi was a way to add in extra sweetness.

I mixed in mango purée, the yogurt, and milk to create it. Very simple and you only need 3 ingredients.


If you have kids, its a great way to make them eat yogurt.

All 3 different types of iögo yogurt pouches are good for different purposes, but if I had to choose a type, it would be the iögo Probio Strawberry. I got a little bit of a sweet tooth.

I honestly do like the design of the pouches as there is less waste. I’ve even noticed my husband consuming more yogurt since we brought these home. As the opening of the pouches are small, I don’t have to worry about spoilage. With the yogurt tubs, I get easily weirded out when I see the clear liquid sitting on top even though its natural and safe to eat.

    I am trying to find out where the pouch is recyclable – as far as I can tell, my regular municipal recycling does not accept it and it advises it must go in the trash. You say it’s fully recyclable – do you know where it is accepted for recycling?

    I have a sinking feeling it is potentially recyclable, but impossible to do so in any practical way which kind of defeats the purpose and is a big step backward in terms of packaging

      I wasn’t sure if they were accepted, so I emailed RecycleBC and got the following reply:

      “Stand up pouches like the ones used for Iogo yogurt or GoGo Squeeze or are not accepted as they are a multi laminated plastic which is not compatible with the recycling process.”

      So there is our answer. Despite aspirational claims, they are not recyclable and should not be marketed as such.

        Hi Melanie, thanks for letting me know. I’ve actually put it in my recycling in Burnaby and so far no one has said anything. I’ll send a note off to Ultima foods to inquire what they mean when they say the pouch is recyclable. Thanks for checking!
