Fat has found its way back to the yogurt aisle. Look for code words like “indulgently silky” (Liberté Méditerranée), “traditional” (The Greek Gods), “authentic” (Fage Total), “reminiscent of the old days” (Brown Cow Cream Top), and “hand-crafted” (Noosa).
The buzzwords are warm and fuzzy, but the yogurt is made from whole milk or whole milk plus cream. That means some 170 to 250 calories and 5 to 10 grams of saturated fat in a 6 oz. serving.
What’s more, Brown Cow Cream Top Greek and The Greek Gods have about half the protein of other greeks. That’s because neither is strained, and cream has less protein than milk.
With so many creamy 0% greeks (or icelandics) out there with roughly half the calories, going “indulgent” seems like a lose-lose.
