When it comes to dieting and healthy eating, yoghurt is something that gets brought up a lot with much of the focus and emphasis on Greek yoghurt. But what about the difference between Greek and regular? Is one better than the other or are both equally positive to add to your daily routine? Some people might say that yoghurt is just yoghurt, not matter what type you are eating, but that isn’t really the case! Let’s take a look at some of the main differences between Greek yoghurt and regular yoghurt. Is one better than the other?
1. What Are the Differences?
Plain yoghurt is a great source of calcium and also a great source of protein. It’s versatile and easy to find in most stores these days which makes it a simple addition to any diet. Pure, natural Greek yoghurt is sometimes a little harder to find, but what you get for your extra shopping effort is about triple the amount of protein! This is down to the straining process which results in the thicker consistency and more sour taste. Something to consider though, is that plain regular yoghurt does tend to contain more calcium than Greek on average.
