    I love your yoghurt. Absolutely fantastic. The vanilla is sublime. I am also giving it my baby as it is possibly the only yoghurt with no colouring or flavouring and he loves it too. It would be great to see a product for babies with full cream milk.

    I have been buying your plain yogurt for a couple of years now. Hijke is the ONLY yogurt I will eat and will go out of my way to buy it. (Sadly there seems to be only one stockist in Somerset West) I was thrilled to find Hijke cheese in Pick and Pay at Waterstone Village yesterday. Now this will become the ONLY cheese I will eat. It's delicious.

    I am following the Dukan diet which advocates eating virtually fat free quark. I managed to find some at Thrupps, but the label on the container does not give any nutritutional information. Can you please supply me with the details?

    I would also like to know about your fat free, flavored yogurts. Are they sweetened with fructose and sucrose?
