    Zoi Greek Yogurt?

    Primal Fuel
    I found this at a nearby store, but I don't know whether I should purchase it ... here are the ingredients:

    Traditional Plain Zoi Greek Yogurt Quarts

    Why is there cream in the yogurt?
    feel free to take a look at my journal!

    fage isn't organic though, is it?

    the page says this on zoi:

    Grade A whole milk and cream that never contain artificial hormones like rBST or rBGH

    what's up with the cream, though? what is cream? lol.

    There's cream in that yogurt because that's how the manufacturer achieves stable fat percentage -- by combining proper amounts of skim milk and cream to get to whatever fat % it wants. That's very common in dairy products.

    I'd be more suspicious of milk protein concentrate, but all in all this looks like your normal dairy product, nothing out of ordinary...

    Yeah, it's just that I need to spend my dining account money ... and this is the only plain one that looks decent.

    There's a chobani fat free one ... but I don't think I should go for that, right? For some reason, it didn't even show vitamin D on the nutrient label? How is there 0 percent vitamin D?! o.O

    Well, if it's me I will not buy it. If you get chance to make you own homemade yogurt, you will never go back to buy the store bought.
    You can strain the homemade plain yogurt to Greek yogurt. I took some of my own made to my office, those ladies said it tasted like real yogurt no corn starch, Lol. That's true. All I had over there were milk and yogurt starter (from the last time batch).
    Also it is save money.

    This. Invest in a yogurt maker, some culture, and a bottle of grass fed cream. You can thank us later!
    My recipe for Creme Bulgare (yogurt made with cream only):

    and a link to yogurt maker:

    poor excuse. My husband & I got through college just fine on $20k/yr (we own our own house to boot). Use some common sense, set aside $5-$10 every month and save up for the things you want.

    And what's to be done about the desire to consume Greek yogurt in the meantime?

    Thriftiness is a good thing, but there are times when expediency can trump it.
