You probably have noticed that Greek yogurt has soared in popularity over the past couple of years. There are many health benefits associated with yogurt. You’ve probably heard the term “probiotic.” These are active cultures found in yogurt that is a friendly bacteria to aid our stomachs in digestion.
Non fat Greek yogurt is rich and creamy because it is triple strained, most commercial yogurts are strained only twice. This means that most of the watery whey is removed, resulting in it’s rich texture. Greek yogurt is also higher in protein and lower in sodium than other commercial yogurts.
There are many brands to choose from. My favorites are Chobani and Fage. Stonyfield Farm Organic and Yoplait make nice Greek yogurts as well.
Have a great day!
