Benefits of Greek Yogurt

"What makes it greek yogurt and why is it better?"

This leaves the yogurt more concentrated and packed full of nutrients like protein and calcium. This straining process is also what gives the greek yogurt its healthy edge, unique texture and slightly different flavor than regular yogurt.
