What is Greek yogurt?
- Both traditional and Greek yogurts start out the same — by fermenting milk with live bacteria cultures.
- Greek yogurt is created when the yogurt is strained so that the liquid whey is removed. When the whey is gone, the yogurt takes on a thicker, cheesier texture than traditional yogurt.
- For traditional yogurt, if a cup of milk is used to make the yogurt, one cup of yogurt is produced. In Greek yogurt, it takes more milk to create one cup of yogurt, sometimes up to four cups of milk. This is why true Greek yogurts can be more expensive.
