Wallaby History

Crafted with a bunch of Aussie good vibes.

Back in the 90’s—when it was cool to wear neon colors, animal prints, baggy pants, and fanny packs—our founders took an adventure trip to Australia. As most people who travel there do, they fell in love with the landscapes, laid-back ‘tude, friendly people, and—obviously—the yogurt.

Upon their return to California, they quit their day jobs and started crafting Wallaby.

Today, after more than 20 years, we are still inspired by our roots in how we make our yogurt: slowly (you’d be surprise how long it takes), with carefully selected cultures, the best organic fruit and milk, and a bunch of good vibes.

That’s the Aussie way, a world away from complicated.

Product Descriptions

Why did you change your packaging?

In August 2020 we redesigned our packaging to feature our Aussie influence, our amazing organic ingredients and craft, and to bring back our beloved Wallaby logo—we know you love it, and we do too.

Aussie Smooth:

How is it different from conventional yogurt?
  • We use organic ingredients and a slow culturing process to create our smooth and creamy Australian-inspired yogurt. The smooth texture and mild taste—the result of our slow culturing process—is what makes Wallaby Organic Aussie Smooth so deliciously different and unique.
    Aussie Smooth is available in Whole Milk.

Aussie Greek:

What makes Wallaby Aussie Greek yogurts so good?
  • Wallaby Organic Aussie Greek yogurt is traditionally strained. By following this method, our Greek yogurt is rich in protein and has a deliciously thick texture. We also use our own signature, slow culturing process. This gives our Greek yogurt the distinct, creamy and mild flavor that we’re known for.

What does traditionally strained mean?
  • It’s how we produce our Greek yogurts. Straining is the process by which excess whey (liquid) is removed from yogurt and is the traditional method for producing Greek yogurt. The straining method is what makes our Aussie Greek yogurt deliciously thick and rich in protein.

No Sugar Added* Aussie Greek:

What makes No Sugar Added Aussie Greek different?
  • Our No Sugar Added* yogurt is sweetened by the naturally occurring sugars in milk and organic fruit. It contains 0g of added sugar*, and no artificial sweeteners.

    *Not a low calorie food. See nutrition information for sugar and calorie content.

What is the incubation temperature of Wallaby Organic?
  • We wish we could tell you. That’s our little secret.
How long do you incubate your yogurt?
  • We can tell you that the incubation process takes a long time, but the precise amount of time it takes is a little Wallaby secret.

Nonfat vs Lowfat yogurt:

Why does the nonfat yogurt have more calcium than the lowfat yogurt?
  • Nonfat yogurt has more calcium because we use a higher concentration of milk solids in our nonfat yogurt, which results in a higher calcium content.

Cholesterol Nonfat yogurt:

Why does your nonfat yogurt contain cholesterol? The nutrition facts for your nonfat yogurt show that it has no fat in it, so how could it have cholesterol?
  • Since yogurt is an animal-based product, it will contain some cholesterol.

Vitamin D:

Are your yogurts fortified with Vitamin D?
  • We currently do not fortify our yogurts with Vitamin D. Our yogurt is not a significant source of Vitamin D.


Do you your yogurts contain Lactose?
  • Yes, Wallaby products contain lactose.

Locust Bean Gum:

Why does your yogurt contain Locust Bean Gum?
  • This ingredient is a component in our fruit purees. Once our yogurt has been pasteurized and cultured, we mix in the fruit puree containing this ingredient.
    If you are looking for a yogurt that does not contain Locust Bean Gum, we suggest our Plain yogurt.

What is the origin of the Locust Bean Gum used in Wallaby Organic?
  • Locust Bean Gum is extracted from the seeds of the carob tree.

Where does Wallaby source its milk?
  • Wallaby sources milk from USDA certified organic farms. These farms share Wallaby’s commitment to producing organic products of the highest quality.
What does pasture-based mean? How often are the cows out to pasture?
  • Per the USDA National Organic Program standards, in order for the farms to be certified organic, livestock must graze on pasture a minimum of 120 days during the grazing season; and obtain a minimum of 30 percent dry matter intake from grazing pasture during the grazing season.


Do your products contain Genetically Modified Ingredients (GMOs)?
  • According to USDA National Organic Program (NOP) regulations, the use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and their products are prohibited in organic production, processing or handling.

    All Wallaby products are certified organic by USDA National Organic Program. This means that our products are produced without the use of GMOs, antibiotics, synthetic growth hormones* and persistent pesticides.

    *No significant difference has been shown between milk derived from rBST-treated and non-rBST-treated cows.

Additional Notes:

  • We strongly support transparency in labeling and the right for people to know what’s in the food and beverages they eat and drink.
    • Our products are certified organic
      • People know the certified organic label means their food is produced without the use of antibiotics, added growth hormones or GMOs. Products labeled as “organic” and “made with organic” are regulated by the National Organic Program (NOP) and certified by an independent, third party certifier.

Ingredients / Flavoring:

Sweeteners (Stevia and Xylitol):

Do your yogurts contain sweeteners like Stevia and Xylitol?
  • We don’t use these ingredients in any of our products.

Specks in Vanilla Yogurt:

What are the specks in my Vanilla yogurt?
  • The specks in Wallaby Organic Vanilla Bean yogurt come from the vanilla pod/seed which looks dark brown and can range in size from a small dot to a splinter.

Natural Flavors:

Do your yogurts contain natural flavors?
  • Our natural flavors are developed specifically for each product. We cannot provide specific information on the flavors because this information is proprietary to our suppliers.


Do Wallaby yogurts contain Pectin?
  • If you are trying to avoid pectin, we recommend our Plain Aussie Greek yogurt in nonfat, lowfat and whole milk. Our flavored products do contain pectin to enhance the texture of our yogurt.


Do your yogurts contain whey?
  • Watery layer on top of Yogurt – It’s normal to find a little bit of liquid on top of the yogurt upon opening. The watery layer found on top is whey—a component in cultured yogurt. Stir it up and enjoy!

  • Greek Yogurt – It’s normal to find a little bit of liquid on top of the yogurt upon opening. The watery layer found on top is whey—an inherent, component in cultured yogurt. Even though most of the whey is strained out of our Greek yogurt, there could still be a small amount present upon opening due to the yogurt settling. You can just pour off the whey if you prefer to keep your yogurt very thick, or you can stir it in.

Can Wallaby packaging be recycled?
  • Our cups and tubs are made from polypropylene (plastic #5). Though this material is recyclable in many communities, it is important to check locally to ensure that your municipality accepts polypropylene in curbside recycling or drop-off recycling. If the cups/tubs are recyclable in your community, discard the foil seal before recycling the cup/tub. For more information, visit

Shelf Life:

Shelf life after opening:

What is the shelf life of Wallaby yogurts?
  • In general, our yogurt should be good within 7 days after it has been opened. Our 5.3-oz. containers should be consumed in one sitting.

Unrefrigerated product:

What if I leave my yogurt unrefrigerated?
  • We cannot confirm the quality of the product if left unrefrigerated for an extended period of time.


Can I freeze your yogurts?
  • Aussie Smooth: While it’s fine to freeze our yogurt, freezing (and thawing) may change the yogurt’s look and texture. Freezing (and thawing) may also destroy some of the cultures.

    If you decide to freeze our yogurt, we recommend that you thaw the product under refrigeration. We also still recommend that you consume it by the “Best By” date printed on the container.

  • Aussie Greek: We do not recommend freezing our Greek-style yogurts, as this can adversely affect the texture. We have learned that freezing and thawing our Greek-style yogurt causes the texture to turn to liquid or become very grainy.
