Fiber One only has 50 calories, why was this brand not included?

I don't understand why Chobani's plain, no-fat Greek yogurt wasn't included, as it's the BEST I've ever found.

Was unaware that some yogurts have an abundance of fats and sugar. Thankyou for keeping me informed about something else!

Good article, but there are errors in the chart. The chart claims that Dannon, Stonyfield Farms and Trader Joe's plain yogurts contain sugar. They do not. I checked at the three companies' web sites to confirm. The sugar content for these three is the same as for the 'any brand' yogurts listed in the table -- 15 grams per serving.

Make your own "greek yogurt" for a fraction of the cost.!

Place an extra large paper coffee filter in a colander, place colander over a bowl, pour plain yogurt into filter, cover and place in fridge. After 3 hours, pour whey that has collected in bottom of bowl out (or save to use in cooking), pour (or dump ... it will be much thicker now) yogurt back into container. Now you have thick, creamy (if you stir it), plain yogurt to use in savory cooking (works great in place of sour cream) or add fruit, honey & nuts for a delicious snack, breakfast, or dessert.

I use greek yogurt and add a few splenda packets and cinnamon and eat it for dessert, and a bit of vanilla if you'd like

I love yogurt, plain, w/o sugar, w/fruit and cereal. Can you add Mountain High Yoghurt to the grid? It contains no sugar, only pectin, plus all the active cultures currently advertised for Activa. And it tastes great.

Loved the article. I recently had an acupuncture treatment for the first time. While the girl asked qestions about my health and diet. I told them I eat a lot of yogurts expecially for breakfast with fruit. They warned me that yogurt is very hard to process first thing in the morning. Is this true? I feel great when I have yogurt.

vickid55: I use greek yogurt a lot in my cooking. I put it in my oatmeal, mix it in salad dressings for a creamier texture, in smoothies, and use it when making tuna or egg salad as a substitution for mayo. So if you find that you want to use it for more dishes there are yogurt strainers available on line that are inexpensive, and more convenient than using the cheesecloth method.

My usual breakfast includes yogurt. I prefer to buy the bigger sizes of plain--less waste for the landfill. Then I can control how much sweetener. Just a teaspoon of honey usually does it. If i have time, I might put a dash of cinnamon and vanilla and usually fresh fruit--bananas are the most common, but strawberries, blueberries and a ripe pear are really good. Sometimes I make my own yogurt, too. It's tasty, but usually a little more runny. Lots cheaper and even less for the landfill.

I love the non-fat Greek yogurt Chobani. It's thick and creamy and is wonderful added to soups. And there no added ingredients. Just milk and cultures. I'm wary of the other ingredients added to yogurts in general. Cheers.

I have been eating Dannon Yogurt (vanilla) low fat. in the large size. They carry it at Target for $2.09 where as the major grocery stores charge $2.70 or more.

That's insane. I am considering making my own. Not sure if it is difficult, doesn't sound like it is.

I add it to smoothies, fiber cereal, etc.

I started making yogurt cheese but have a question about nutrition. I first thought the nutritional content would be the same as yogurt, only concentrated. However the liquid that drains out is whey and whey is used to make protein shakes etc so I'm worried that I'm draining out the good for you stuff.

Anyone know how to estimate the change in nutrition from yogurt to yogurt cheese?

My favorite is Trader Joe's European Style Thick & Creamy Organic Plain Nonfat yogurt = for 1 cup it has 120 cal, 0 g fat, 10 mg Cholesterol, 160 mg Sodium, 540 mg Potassium, 17 carbs (1 g fiber, 10 g sugar), and 14 GRAMS PROTIEN!! - only milk and live cultures - nothing else. Love it with apples and raisins for a creamy sweet (but not too sweet) snack.
