Greek Yoghurt Mislabeled?

Can't find where we had that yoghurt discussion, but heard this on the news the other day, and thought about it.  Just can't trust anybody any more but Fage seems on the up and up.  Will go look for that 4% fat content again, it has the cream on the top, which is the best part.  Like in the olden days . ;)

Another reason to stick with Cabot. A full fat Greek yogurt, totally delicious!

I think Whole Foods sells the full fat Fage, which I can't get at my local grocery store.

I think it's the full fat. I'm used to seeing the ones with 0% and 2% on the label, but this one didn't call out its fat. When I checked the nutritional label, it had more fat than the 2% so I'm assuming it's the full fat variety.


It really sucks that so many Greek yoghurts are proud that they are low- or no- fat.

I recall reading something a while ago (when I fat fat free - not that I was any thinner mind you ...) that showed just how much fat there really was in reduced fat milks like 2%, 1%, etc, would apply to other dairy products like yogurt.


This is pretty similar to that article, so misleading labelling is

Well, I notice I wake up really congested and grouchy when I eat yoghurt in the evening not sure but could I be allergic?  That would be very sad indeed. :(


I think I'm switching to Chia pudding for our evening treat, it's so healthy and easy to work with!

BarbinNJ,


Sometimes reactions are fleeting while your body is cleaning itself out.  Sometimes a sensitivity you hadn't noticed before surfaces.  Sometimes it is just an over abundance of the same kind of food (or food group) eaten in a short period of time. Sometimes it is an ingredient in the food.  You have to experiment on yourself.   Often, you can re-introduce these foods at a later date to see if you are still sensitive to them.  Your body will let you know right away!
