Greek vs. Regular Yogurt

The difference between Greek and regular yogurt is simple. Sadly, many people are unsure what Greek yogurt is and are hesitant to even try it!

Greek yogurt is regular yogurt that it has gone through a special straining process during which the whey (liquid portion of the milk) is removed. Because the whey has been removed, Greek yogurt contains less lactose and less carbs. Greek yogurt has a lower sugar content and is thicker and richer than its cousin. Because it is more concentrated, it tends to contain more protein, which can help you feeling fuller longer.

When choosing Greek yogurt, opt for low-fat or non-fat varieties. If Greek yogurt is just not your thing, no problem. Both Greek or regular yogurt are healthy options and will provide you with beneficial calcium and probiotics.
