14 Of The Best Greek Yogurt Brands You Should Know About

Greek and regular yogurt are milk fermentation products with different consistencies, tastes, and nutrient profiles. The straining process for making Greek yogurt removes most of its liquid components as well as the milk sugar. What's left is a thicker, creamier mixture that contains nearly twice as much protein as regular yogurt. According to Medical News Today, Greek yogurt is protein-rich and supports muscle growth. It has probiotics that may help protect gut health, contributing to your overall well-being. You get calcium too, a crucial nutrient for bone health.

In the kitchen, Greek yogurt is a versatile ingredient for making salads, desserts, or dips. It's a great replacement for sour cream or mayonnaise, but you can also enjoy it alone. However, with so many options at the grocery store, it's difficult to identify authentic Greek yogurt. Some brands may have filler ingredients and excessive sugars, which reduces the potential health benefits. Therefore, we've compiled a list of the top Greek yogurt brands based on taste, texture, price, and nutrition to help you make the best choice.

1. Fage

In 1926, the Filippou family in Athens, Greece, set up a dairy shop, and by the 1950s, Fage yogurt became a household name. Nearly 100 years later, the family still makes yogurt and other dairy products using recipes passed down for generations. Fage total plain Greek yogurt comes in three varieties – 0%, 2%, and 5% milk fat – so you can find one that suits your diet. It's protein-rich, providing anywhere from 14 to 16 grams per serving, and a source of calcium and potassium.

Fage Greek yogurt is kosher, gluten-free, and made without added sugars. The company also makes a low-fat, lactose-free Greek yogurt called BestSelf for consumers with lactose intolerances.

Most consumers are pleased with the taste and texture of Fage Greek yogurt, and one reviewer on Influenster described it as the "Best Greek yogurt. The perfect texture. Rich and creamy, with the perfect tang." Another person reviewing the brand said, "I really enjoy the lactose-free Fage yogurt. I love Greek yogurt, but as someone with a dairy intolerance, it's quite hard to find good Greek yogurts or yogurts in general."

2. Chobani

The combination of great texture and delicious taste has consumers hooked on Chobani Greek yogurt. One person said, "Chobani is consistently good. It seems to have a smoother flavor than others."

You can get no-fat, low-fat, and whole-milk Greek yogurt from Chobani. It's an impressive source of protein, providing up to 16 grams per serving, includes calcium and potassium, and is low in sodium, which is especially important for heart health.

The company takes things further with its triple zero Greek yogurt, which has no added sugar, fat, or artificial flavors. Although it has stevia, it doesn't have an unpleasant aftertaste, and one consumer said, "With it being a triple zero, I was concerned that it'd of lost some of its creamyness [sic] or had an aftertaste to it, but it turned out that I didn't need to worry about that at all.

It's made from almond milk and soy and provides up to 17 grams of plant-based proteins. One reviewer said, "This is a good dairy-free yogurt when trying to increase your protein intake." Although soy is an excellent protein source, it's also a common allergen, so this ingredient excludes many people from eating this product.

9. The Greek Gods

In 2002, three friends with Greek ancestry came together to try traditional recipes and thus, created The Greek Gods brand. This company uses the pour-and-set method to produce Greek yogurt that's smoother but less tangy. One person described it as having an "Absolutely perfect, texture, and taste!" Sadly though, this technique produces yogurt with less protein than the straining method; therefore, you get 7 to 10 grams of protein per serving.

The cows graze on organic fields throughout the year, which the company claims helps them live healthier for twice as long.

Therefore, while it might make a delicious snack, it might not suit certain dietary restrictions. Available flavors include apple crisp, key lime pie, coconut cream pie, vanilla bean, Marionberry, passion fruit, and mango.

All Ellenos Greek yogurt is made without chemical flavors or coloring, staying true to the old ways. Although Greek yogurt is typically free from common allergens, this product contains wheat, and the company warns that its factory also handles eggs and tree nuts, so keep that in mind if you have allergies.
