Yogurt: what's the difference?
After sharing with you some recipes that feature Greek yogurt several people have asked me what the difference in the Yogurt is. I learned about Greek yogurt in a nutrition class I took recently. Greek yogurt is thicker and creamier. I have both types in my refrigerator, so I thought it might be good to compare them for you. Both have fat free labels and both are plain, no flavoring.
The Fage Greek yogurt does not use the word organic.(pictured below)
