  • What makes your yogurts so thick and creamy?

    In non-scientific terms: chickpea magic! Really, though, the unique qualities of chickpea protein paired with our yogurt-fermenting process create that thick, luscious creaminess.

  • What are your yogurts made of?

    Our star ingredient is chickpeas! (Chickpea protein, to be exact.) It’s the base of our yogurts, and all of our other ingredients are simple, familiar things too. Head to our products page for detailed info.

  • What makes your yogurt… “yogurt”?

    The process of making CHKP yogurt is almost identical to making dairy yogurt! We ferment our chickpea mixture exactly like you’d ferment milk for traditional yogurt, and the result is a plant-based yogurt with all that thick, creamy, live & active culture goodness – just made from nutritious, superfood chickpeas instead of dairy 🙂

  • What are the nutritional benefits of your yogurt?

    CHKP yogurts contain 5 – 6g of protein per cup and all 9 essential amino acids. (And chickpea protein is actually more bioavailable – i.e. more easily absorbed by our bodies – than many other plant-based proteins.) Our yogurts also contain high quality carbs and fatty acids, creating a perfectly balanced and nutritious yogurt. Mm, mmm.


    Yes! All of our products are vegan.

Our Ingredients

Our Protein

  • What kind of protein do your yogurts contain?

    CHKP yogurts contain chickpea protein. We have lots to say about how special these little plant-based powerhouse legumes and their high quality protein are – so if you’d like to learn more, head here. 🙂

  • What’s the difference between different sources of protein? Are they all equally good for us?

    There are so many different plant-based protein sources these days that it can all get a bit confusing. But the main distinctions are: how bioavailable each protein is for our bodies (i.e. how readily we can absorb it), how the protein tastes, and what level of allergenicity it has. We’re happy to say that chickpea protein has one of the highest bioavailability scores (PDCAAS) among plant proteins, is neutral in flavor (and perfect for yogurt!), and is not a common allergen like soy, nuts, and dairy.

  • What does it mean that your yogurts “contain all 9 essential amino acids”?

    There are 9 amino acids that our bodies don’t make themselves, so they have to come from our food. The chickpea protein we use in CHKP yogurts contains a strong level of all 9 of these essential amino acids.

Our Packaging

  • Are your cup and lid recyclable?

    Yes! CHKP yogurt cups are made of 100% recyclable Polypropylene, and the lids are made of recyclable aluminum. (And all of our raw ingredient packaging is either reused, recyclable, and/or made of post-consumer recycled materials.)

Our Philosophy

  • Why is it important for plant-based yogurt to contain protein?

    At CHKP, we believe that opting for a plant-based yogurt shouldn’t involve sacrifice or compromise – on craveable taste and texture, or on nutrition. We wanted CHKP to fit right into your busy life and be the perfect, convenient breakfast or snack that would leave you feeling nourished and satisfied. So that’s exactly what we created 🙂
