Is Greek yogurt really better for you?……….

While regular yogurt tends to have fewer calories and more calcium, Greek yogurt has more protein and less sugar — and a much thicker consistency. Both types pack probiotics and support digestion, weight loss, and heart health.

 

Greek yogurt is considered a superfood partly because it provides more protein than regular yogurt. A 170 gram (six ounce) serving of Greek yogurt has just as much protein as 85 grams (three ounces) of lean meat, which makes it a great alternative source of protein.
