Greek yogurt

Yogurt is a bit like coffee; it doesn't actually taste good, but some is less bad than others. Today I'm having fresh blueberries (lightly cooked to a sauce using Splenda) on top of Stoneyfield Organic fat free Greek Yogurt with cinnamon sprinkles. Yummy. Greek yogurt doesn't seem to get so weepy and runny. So of course, I looked it up.


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.
