Greek Yogurt

Greek Yogurt

In the past five years, Greek yogurt sales have skyrocketed. Greek yogurt satisfies consumer needs for health, convenience and taste. Greek yogurt has a number of health benefits.

• Great source of protein which promotes fullness. A typical serving has 15-20 grams of protein, about the same amount as two to three ounces of meat.
• High amount of probiotics
• Lower levels of lactose.
• Fewer carbohydrates than regular yogurt
Greek yogurt is being sold by a number of companies. It is tangier, less sweet and creamier than regular yogurt. It is creamier because it is strained extensively to remove liquid. Give Greek yogurt a try.
