Greek Yogurt versus Regular Yogurt
Greek yogurt is known for its unique creamy texture. Greek yogurt is strained while still warm, which allows most of the whey to be removed. The end result is a thick and creamy yogurt that is high in protein, low in lactose, and tolerates heat well. Even the low-fat versions of Greek yogurt have the thick and creamy texture.
