Quark is a cultured dairy beloved in Europe for its non-tart taste, thick texture, and high protein content — it’s like Greek yogurt, but better! Wünder Quark is our fresh take on this traditional dairy product.
Is Wünder Quark Different Than Greek or Icelandic yogurt?
While quark is certainly similar to both Greek yogurt and Icelandic yogurt (aka skyr), ours delivers a non-tarte taste. We also use a different blend of dairy cultures. Specifically, we use buttermilk cultures from France, which gives our quark a creamy taste and texture.
How Do You Make Wünder?
Each batch of Wünder quark is crafted in Upstate New York for over 13 hours, using a special blend of dairy cultures and grass-fed milk that we source from family farms. This differs from standard Greek yogurt which typically takes around 5 hours to make.
Are your cows grass-fed?
Our cows, which come from family owned farms in Upstate New York, are grass fed during the spring, summer, and autumn months. However, during the winter months, it is not possible to feed our cows grass without risk of their nutrients depleting. Therefore, in the cold months the cows eat foods like hay to sustain their body fat.
Is Wünder Organic?
Wünder Quark is not certified organic, however we use only simple, thoughtful ingredients including locally sourced grass-fed milk and absolutely no preservatives, stevia, artificial sweeteners, artificial flavors, growth hormones, starches, or gums.
Does Wünder Contain GMOs?
No, Wünder quark contains no GMO ingredients.
What is RBST?
rBST, short for recombinant bovine somatotropin, is an artificial growth hormone used to increase milk production in cows. Here at Wünder, we only work with farms who do not treat their cows with rBST.
Does Wünder Contain Any Artificial Sweeteners?
Nope! Our products are also free of Stevia.
Where does the sugar in Wünder come from?
The 5g of sugar in our Plain flavor are naturally occurring from the milk. Our flavored varieties contain naturally occurring sugar in the form of real fruit and cane sugar.
Why do I sometimes see liquid at the top of my container?
The liquid that sometimes is found at the top of the container is whey. Whey is just the remaining liquid from the straining process of all the ingredients and is completely natural. You can either mix it into your quark with a spoon or pour it out.
I’m Lactose Intolerant. Can I Eat Wünder?
Sensitivity to lactose varies by person, and kids and adults who experience discomfort from lactose may be able to eat Wünder Quark without negative effects due to our straining process, which removes about 95% of the lactose from our products. However, it’s best to consult your physician before making major changes to your diet.
Is Wünder Gluten Free?
All Wünder Quark varieties are naturally gluten-free and are certified by the GFCO (Gluten-Free Certification Organization). This means they contain no wheat, rye, barley or other gluten-containing ingredients.
Is Wünder Vegetarian-Friendly?
Yes! Wünder is free of gelatin and other animal-based thickeners. Wünder is a great source of protein for vegetarian diets.
Is Wünder Kosher?

Is the cup recyclable?
Our cup is made out of #5 plastic. You can recycle the foil on the top of the cup too depending on your local recycle program.
Where Can I Find The Expiration Date On My Cup Of Wünder?
