Difference between Greek Yogurt and Regular Yogurt
Greek yogurt is produced by straining the liquid whey from regular yogurt, leaving a thicker and creamier product. This process produces higher protein and lower sugar content than traditional yogurt. Greek yogurt has a tangy flavour that comes from the lactic acid produced by the bacteria used to ferment the milk.
Greek yogurt has become more prevalent in recent years due to its thicker and creamier texture and higher protein content than regular yogurt. It is also often used in recipes as a substitute for sour cream or mayonnaise and is a popular option for smoothies and dips. In terms of taste, Greek yogurt is tangier and less sweet than regular yogurt. However, this can vary depending on the brand and the flavour. Some people prefer the taste of Greek yogurt, while others prefer the taste of regular yogurt. Ultimately, the choice between Greek yogurt and regular yogurt comes down to personal preference and the specific use case.
