Hey,

So I bought a tub of Greek yoghurt over the weekend because I really wanted to try it out, but when I got home and scrutinized the label for the few words I understood, I doubted what I bought was really Greek yoghurt. I don't live in an English speaking country and I just know enough of the local language to get by, I recently added some diet words to my vocab so I can examine the labels of the stuff I buy.

So my question is even if the label says Greek yoghurt on it, what should you check to make sure you not just getting a sugary filled normal yoghurt that's trying to pass itself off as Greek yoghurt thanks.

    Korean it said Greek in English though and yoghurt in Konglish, from what I could gather from the label the nutritional info on it wasn't drastically different to a drinking yoghurt I had in the fridge.

    The good stuff will have 2 ingredients: milk and bacteria unless it has added fruit or herbs and spices. The ones that are just for marketing band wagon popularity will have added milk proteins and various thickeners, sugars, coloring etc.

    Try Turkish yoghurt instead. :-) it's thicker and fattier but is so good, I take instead a little less.
