Besides texture, here are some other differences between regular and Greek yogurt:
- Protein - Greek yogurt has almost double the protein of regular yogurt.
- Fat - Unless you're using the nonfat varieties, Greek yogurt has about three times the saturated fat than regular yogurt.
- Sodium - Greek yogurt contains about half the sodium of regular yogurt.
- Carbohydrates - Greek yogurt contains roughly half the carbohydrates of regular yogurt, but remember that adding sweeteners to either one will increase the carbohydrate count.
