vag, what's the REAL ISH?

I need to try some authentic stuff.



i'd probably be laughed at for considering this my favorite greek yogurt, but it's truly amazing:

http://www.plentiyogurt.com/oats-and-seeds/

it's worth trying.. it doesn't have as strong of a greek yogurt taste as some of the popular brands, but, it has this ultra clean/smooth/refreshing taste that has become addicting.



edit: I wonder if it's "strained" (authentic process)

Total by fage is one of my favs.

Here is a page with all the company international sites : http://international.fage.eu/

Of course the 1kg one:

http://usa.fage.eu/product/fage-total-2-353-oz


I'll search for others that are being exported and post.

Crosslinked from adarqui's journal:


have you ever had some "American brands"? I guess it's all about the "straining process":

http://www.nola.com/health/index.ssf/2013/10/is_your_favorite_brand_of_gree.html

There are two different yogurts here, the 'normal' one and the 'strained' one. And then there are the 'yogurt-based-deserts'. The strained ones are more thick, creamy and in most cases less sour.
From what i know , the 'truthiness' of the yogurt it is not in the straining or not, but in the bacterial fermentation.
I haven't had any foreign commercial ones, but i've had yogurt in various hotel breakfasts abroad, you can't really tell the difference by taste.
Also, i can't answer which is real and which is not, i know the FAGE ones are real for sure. Here it is forbidden to label them 'yogurt' if they are not 'real' ( fermentation-wise ).

bringing mine over from adarqs journal too

The prices here ( at the source ) per kg/lt are ~3,5 euros yogurt, 1,2 euros milk. So almost triple price for yogurt indeed but also almost triple protein ( i am referring to 2% both, yogurt is around 9g/100g protein , milk is around 3,5g/100ml ). So about the same price per protein g here. Also, yogurt has all the milk nutrients and extra probiotics , plus it is ok ( or at least milder ) for lactose intolerant people.
Yogurt FTW!  :highfive:

i thought it would be much cheaper for you! the only real 'greek' stuff you see a lot here is like fage - which i believe is actually made in greece and stuff, the rest is 'greek style' which has nowhere near the macros - way more sugar + less protein. in fact 'natural yoghurt' is better than the greek style' from what i gather.



on the topic of dairy products - anyone had quark? that also has awesome macros and i found some pretty cheap

I love cottage cheese. I remember being afraid of it growing up, then I had a spoon full in my 20's, and devoured a tub. I'm someone who easily gets addicted to dairy products ;f

lol, cant describe how kitsch the label is for a Greek that sees it. It would be the exact equivalent of an American product with the freedom eagle and Lincoln and idk mount Rushmore  on it  :wowthatwasnutswtf:
Don't judge the book by the cover though, glad the product delivers.  :highfive:

so SKYR - Icelandic yoghurt just started being mass marketed in the UK, I basically lived off the stuff in iceland, it's amazing. Better than Greek, really thick and great flavours. And nearly 10g protein/100g, I had no trouble polishing off a 450g tub in one go.
