Greek Style Yogurt
Greek-style yogurt is strained to reduce the whey, making it creamier in texture without adding extra fat. This yogurt is also more stable as a cooking ingredient because it is less likely to curdle when heated. Per serving, there is more protein and less carbohydrate in Greek-style yogurt than in standard yogurts. Because of the reduced carbohydrates, there is more “room” in your carbohydrate count to eat fresh fruit with it. Definitely stick with the low-fat option—the whole-milk version has 20 grams of fat per serving! Nutritional Facts
