Greek yogurt is the biggest thing to happen to yogurt since, well, yogurt. On the off chance you've been hiding in a cave for the past five years or so, we'll explain. Greek yogurt is not necessarily from Greece, but its origins do lie in that part of the world. It is yogurt that has had most of the liquid drained out, so while it retains the tangy flavor of yogurt, its texture is closer to that of sour cream. It's also higher in protein than other types of yogurts—Trader Joe's Organic Greek Style Nonfat Yogurt has 23 grams of protein in each one cup serving!
Each 32 ounce container of Trader Joe's Organic Greek Style Nonfat Yogurt contains just cultured pasteurized organic nonfat milk, with live and active cultures like s. thermophilus and l.acidolphilus. It's made for us by a respected organic yogurtery. Enjoy it as you'd enjoy any other yogurt, use it as a replacement for sour cream in dips, or add it to recipes—it holds up to heat really well, because it is less likely than traditional yogurt to separate when heated.
We're selling Organic Greek Style Nonfat Plain Yogurt in 32 ounce containers for $6.99, a terrific everyday value on this plainly delicious yogurt.
