    Full Fat Greek Yogurt/Yoghurt

    I'm sure everyone already knows this but I just recently discovered ---

    Fage Full fat was starting to get harder to find in my area, as a few stores that usually carried it, now do not (which, oddly, coincided w/ them ADDING whole milk to their shelves, go figure).

    So I poked around at Trader Joe's and discovered that their Greek yogurt is higher in total fat than the Fage! Fage 11g and Trader Joe's 18g to the cup.

    FYI everybody, if you're not making it at home already, btw batches of bone broth

    Yeah, I discovered the TJ yoghurt a while ago. Then I discovered the Voskos Plain Original that has 20g of fat per serving. It's sold at the Berkeley Bowl (heads up all Bay Area residents). Now I'm shamelessly enjoying a small bowl of Voskos with fresh organic blueberries, blackberries and raspberries on my heavy lift days.

    So how does TJ taste compared to FAGE? How does the ingredient list compare? The culture profile?

    I'm not a fan of TJ in general, but will keep an eye out for Voskos. I love a good yogurt. I also love my yogurt topped with a dollop of sour cream.

    Whenever I look at yogurt at the store, usually only can find 0% fat, I notice the sugar is so high. I avoid it for just this reason and I really do like it.

    It takes some digging but brands like Wallaby and Dreaming Cow are pretty good.

    HEY LAURASB

    So I checked and Fage is 8 of sugar, Trader Joes 9 -- boo hiss

    Two other differences of note; Joes does not have Bificus culture (if that is important to you but has the other cultures) and oddly, includes nonfat amongst the Grade A Milk and Cream.

    The texture is a little thinner, only slightly, in the Joes version and I'd even say a wee bit zingy-ier in taste than Fage.

    We don't seem to carry those brands around here but I can keep my eye out for them. Do you know why yogurt is so high in sugar? I'm talking about the plain unflavored kind.
