Greek yogurt, which is a type of low fat yogurt which is well-known for its very thick and creamy texture, has recently become more increasingly found in the United States, due to the flavor and absence of bitterness making it a wonderful treat.
However, when people hear of yogurt, the first thing that comes to mind is a nicely packaged sweet and creamy dairy filled with fruits. According to Adam, there is one type of yogurt that is available in the market and this is Greek yogurt.
Now that begs the question: “What really is Greek yogurt?”
Otherwise known as strained yogurt, yogurt cheese or Labneh, Greek yogurt is made from sheep’s milk having a creamier texture and more sour taste as compared to the typical yogurt that you often see in the groceries. It is traditionally made from sheep’s milk although those made in the US are made from cow’s milk.
The consistency of Greek yogurt could be classified as somewhere between that of cheese and the typical yogurt mainly because of a straining process which eliminates the presence of whey. The removal of whey also helps in lessening the amount of carbohydrates and sugars while increasing the amount of protein found in Greek yogurt.
Besides its consistency, Greek yogurt is quite well known for its nutritional content. What is Greek yogurt’s nutritional value? Greek yogurt is known for its protein content which is double that of regular yogurt. Aside from the protein content, it is also known for having low carbohydrate content. This, along with the high protein content, makes it perfect for those who are into low-carb diets.
For a lot of people, women most especially, Greek yogurt is an excellent source of calcium. For those who are intolerant to milk, it becomes a great alternative, especially for those who are prone to bone diseases such as osteoporosis.
The best thing about Greek yogurt though is that it contains live bacterial cultures which can help boost the body’s immune system.
