The Difference Between Greek Yoghurt vs. Greek-Style Yoghurt

The Important Difference Between Greek Yoghurt and Greek-Style Yoghurt


The cost of maintaining a healthy diet can sometimes be expensive, and while we're happy to swap certain items for cheaper alternatives, there are some things we wont compromise on, like Greek yoghurt. If you're thinking of scrimping on this healthy fridge staple, think again. There's a considerable nutritional difference between real Greek yoghurt and cheaper alternatives that are usually marketed as Greek-style yoghurt. Although both variations start out the same, Greek yoghurt goes through a straining process that gets rid of excess watery-whey to leave behind a thicker, more nutrient-rich version, while greek-style yoghurt is thickened with added milk powders to replicate the texture of the real thing — without the nutritional value.
A 170-gram portion of fat-free Greek yoghurt contains 5.5 grams more protein, half the salt and 2 grams less sugar than a regular store-brand Greek-style version. Though they may taste similar, a serving-by-serving comparison reveals how much more beneficial the real thing is.
