Bloo Moo Frozen Yogurt Opens in Tenleytown

Back in Feb. we saw Blue Moo was coming to the former Marvelous Market space at 4530 Wisconsin Ave. NW. Glad to see they opened.

Their Web site says:

Welcome to Bloo Moo Premium Frozen Yogurt Shop! We serve only the best of the best of frozen yogurts and toppings. All of our yogurts are labeled with the LAC seal. LAC stands for Live and Active Cultures, which means that all of our frozen yogurts contain at least 10 million cultures per gram! There are many benefits of live and active cultures.

Scientific research shows that the live and active cultures found in yogurt may offer many more health attributes, on top of the great nutrition basics. Researchers are exploring how live and active culture yogurt may have a beneficial effect on the immune system, the potential to lower cholesterol, and how it may help combat certain types of cancer-causing compounds, particularly in the digestive track. Few foods help meet your nutritional needs at every stage of life better than live and active culture yogurt. And because it comes in so many flavors and varieties, yogurt appeals to every member of the family!

You can see a list of their flavors here.

  • So is this basically probiotic yogurt, and might be helpful if you’re suffering from gastrointestinal distress of some kind? Might be good to eat for those fighting a C. diff infection, try to repopulate the large intestine with the appropriate flora.

  • I’m curious to know how the live cultures can survive freezing temperatures.

    • From AboutYogurt(dot)com, which is apparently the offical Web site of the National Yogurt Association:

      Does frozen yogurt contain live and active cultures?

      Frozen yogurt is a non-standardized food and, therefore, is not subject to Federal composition standards, as is the case for “yogurt.” In order to qualify for NYA’s Live & Active Cultures seal, frozen yogurt must be a product made by fermenting pasteurized milk (can include skim milk and powdered skim milk, plus other ingredients), using traditional yogurt cultures, until the proper acidity is reached. Many manufacturers, according to their unique recipes, will then mix this (the “yogurt” component) with a pasteurized ice cream mix of milk, cream, and sugar, plus stabilizers or other ingredients needed for desired consistency. This frozen yogurt base mix can then be blended with fruit or other ingredients and then frozen. The freezing process does not kill any significant amount of the cultures—in fact, during the freezing process the cultures go into a dormant state, but when eaten and returned to a warm temperature within the body, they again become active and are capable of providing all the benefits of cultures in a refrigerated yogurt product.

      Not all products termed “frozen yogurt” actually contain live and active cultures. Some so-called “frozen yogurts” use heat-treated yogurt, which kills the live and active cultures, or they may simply add in cultures to the mix along with acidifiers, and skip the fermentation step all together. To make sure that a frozen yogurt contains yogurt produced by traditional fermentation and has a significant amount of live and active cultures, look for the NYA Live & Active Cultures seal.

  • So, apparently, it’s actually frozen yogurt, unlike the soft-serve ice cream masquerading as frozen yogurt sold by places like FroYo.

    • FroZenYo’s website states that its frozen yogurts contain live cultures. That being said, FroZenYo is near the bottom of my “like” list. There’s something about the consistency of that stuff.

      I much prefer IceBerry in Georgetown or TangySweet in Penn Quarter

    • Seriously???? This upsets you?? Or anyone?? It’s dessert. Eat your dinner – you get dessert. Dessert is tasty, not healthy.

      • Did I say it upsets me? I actually eat at FroYo often because my kid loves it. I just think that we shouldn’t kid ourselves that we’re doing anything beneficial for our bodies just because it has “yogurt” in the name. It’s mediocre ice cream.

  • Anyone else think their logo looks like Blood Moo?

  • This place is really good. Great to have in the neighborhood!

  • Oh my god with the frozen yogurt chains. This town could really use a decent ice cream shop, ffs.

  • The frogurt is also cursed…but it comes with a free topping!

  • brookland_rez

    I guess the froyo trend is not dead yet.

  • Yay!! More $6-8 small cups of yogurt!!! Who buys this crap?

  • ate here 2 days ago. it was excellent, way better than frozenyo.
