Natural yoghurt = Ford Fiesta
Fage Greek yoghurt = Rolls Royce

​so Rolls Royce cost more to buy more to maintain more to run but it looks better, is this the comparison?

just explain why it is nutritionally better

No one claimed that it was, however...


The process for making regular and Greek yogurt starts off the same: milk is first heated, then cooled to the desired fermentation temperature (106-114°F) before bacterial cultures are added. The mixture is then left to ferment until the bacteria grows, produces lactic acid, and gels the milk proteins to produce regular yogurt.

To make Greek yogurt, regular yogurt is strained extensively to remove liquid whey and lactose, leaving behind a thicker-textured yogurt.

What Are The Differences?
Besides texture, here are some other differences between regular and Greek yogurt:

Protein - Greek yogurt has almost double the protein of regular yogurt.
Fat - Unless you're using the nonfat varieties, Greek yogurt has about three times the saturated fat than regular yogurt. (this is 0% fat version)

Sodium - Greek yogurt contains about half the sodium of regular yogurt.
Carbohydrates - Greek yogurt contains roughly half the carbohydrates of regular yogurt, but remember that adding sweeteners to either one will increase the carbohydrate count.

I'm not sure about this 0% version, however, the full fat Fage Total is on another level to other yogurts. It's the thickest yogurt I've ever had - a spoon will stand upright in it! Really creamy, filling for breakfast with berries, or as a substitute for double cream; great with apple pie. Mmmmm!

I wouldn't say it's not great quality, if you say so - not having tasted it - but is it worth paying a lot more more than £1/ kg? - would be my question.

​yes, it is totally worth paying more. Fage total Greek yoghurt is amazing, and eating Greek yoghurt has been shown to have more benefits than natural yoghurt.

Yes it is, I love this stuff, the best yogurt in my opinion. The quality is so much better than the cheaper brands, I've tried and tested many.

is it national? cheers

It's worth a try at least once whilst it's on offer, I'd think. It really is one of the best yogurts available in the UK (in my opinion). For anyone wanting a more budget friendly Greek style yogurt, which is both better quality AND cheaper by weight than most others, I highly recommend Lidl's Milbona Greek Style (the full fat one). It's a 1kg tub for £1.45, is very thick (not as thick as Fage, but thicker than most other Greek style offerings), & tastes creamy and not sharp or tangy. Great with muesli & blueberries for breakfast!

OK for that price I will give it a go

Low fat yoghurt is crap.

Fage used to be good, but they changed the formula a while back. A proper Greek yoghurt should have 10% fat - whole milk is approx 4% and after it has been strained and therefore concentrated the fat content will be 10%. Now normal Fage is the only Greek yoghurt on the market with a 5% fat content. Even the rubbish supermarket own brand gloopy slimey 'Greek Style' yoghurts are still 10% fat.

Yes, I know this post is about a 0% yoghurt, but for those of us who aren't interested in the dubious, unproven, diet benefits of zero fat milk products and prefer to eat proper, unfiddled-with food, then avoid Fage.
Waitrose do an own-label, made in Greece, proper 10% fat yoghurt that is superb: waitrose.com/sho…542

I quite like the Greek yogurt from lidl.... £1.29 per kilo pot

I've never seen so many people discussing the ins and outs of Greek yoghurt... Sheesh.

If you like this product, this is a steal. I do like this product so hopefully I'll be able to find some at this price!

If I want 10% fat Greek yoghurt, then I'll go find 10% fat Greek yoghurt... (_;)

Tesco finest Greek yogurt 500 grams for about £1.75 is as good as Fage. Actually I prefer it and has similar protein.

It's made in Greece also by company kri-kri.

Loving this thread lol

Fage is very good Greek yogurt but a cheaper excellent alternative is Lidl and they also do a good Turkish yogurt. Not sure of the differences. Heat added to post as this is a good deal for Fage.

Co-op has also started doing its own real Greek yoghurt. Cost is about £1.90 so £1.80ish with the Co-op card and even less with NUS Extra.

Decent Greek yoghurt is nothing like the rubbish "Greek style" yoghurt. Similarly, once you've tried real crème fraîche, as sold in Tesco and Waitrose as Crème Fraîche D'isigny, you won't believe that the other producers of the foul, artificial, watery, tasteless crème fraîche aren't prosecuted under the Trades Description Act.

apparently you pronounce if fa-hey

gives your innards the urge to go 'blurt! wa-hey!'

​ really call it rolls Royce buy Greek does taste better than normal but u get Greek style from.lidl at 1.38 per kg which tastes a lot better than fage yoghurt didn't realise it was that expensive I use to get it from cool trader for around 35p wen on sale for 500g but it wasn't as nice as lidls

I love Fage, put it on everything. Use it as a substitute for sour cream on chili and casseroles. Mix a bit of horseradish in it for a bit of kick and use it on top of roasted beetroot or carrots. Giggidy. Zero fat, low carbs, high protein and yum.
