This category includes milk products like yogurt or kefir. Fermented milk products may or may not be acceptable on a Ketogenic diet for those with severe insulin resistance, depending on personal tolerance levels.
While these products are made from milk, the sugar content of the end product is greatly reduced. During fermentation, microorganisms feed off the lactose in the milk and leave behind lactic acid as waste (the increased acidity is what gives these products their tang), thickening it in the process. In fermented milk products that are made from whole milk, the vast majority of the milk sugar is “eaten” during this process, leaving a relatively low carbohydrate count. A one cup serving of full fat, plain Greek yogurt contains approximately 8 grams fat, 22 grams protein, and 8 grams sugar.
As long as your yogurt or other fermented milk product is made from full fat milk and does not contain added sugars or flavorings, the typical ketonian may enjoy these foods in small quantities."

Hey @wabmester, what have they added to the low fat Greek yogourt to increase its protein? They probably add to thicken and increase the richness of the mouthfeel, I guess. We don't have Fage here. I must say I'm having a heck of a time finding any unsweetened plain yogurt whatever fat content (nevermind full fat Greek) while we're travelling in the States. Maybe in Whole Foods? but I haven't checked there on this trip.... Over 3 weeks w/o yogourt of any kind is making me a sad girl.

Maybe it's just where I live, but even Safeway stocks Greek yogurt these days, including the full-fat variety. And it's often on sale.
