In recent years, Americans have discovered what the Greeks have known for centuries – there is nothing like the taste and versatility of Greek yogurt.
Naturally rich in protein and low in fat, Greek yogurt is a world away from what many people in the U.S. know as “yogurt.” That’s because Greek yogurt is strained yogurt, a natural straining technique that removes excess water, dissolved salts and sugars. The result is a thick, creamy yogurt with more protein and less carbohydrates than common yogurt.
Authentic Greek yogurt is also plain yogurt. True to the Greek heritage of fresh ingredients and simple preparation, plain Greek yogurt is the most popular type of yogurt in Greece.
Try it and you’ll see why. Few foods are as delicious or as versatile. In Greece, it’s eaten at all hours of the day. Tossed with cucumbers and garlic, it’s the traditional dish of tzatziki, and a perfect complement to lunch or dinner. And drizzled with honey, it’s a simple yet indulgent dessert.
FAGE Total is part of that heritage and versatility, offering you plain yogurt in our Classic, 2% and 0% varieties. All are made the authentic Greek way – with a few all natural ingredients and simple preparation. It’s how our family has done it for 85 years.
