What differentiates greek yoghurt from the regular kind is the preparation which involves straining of whey lending it a thicker consistency and some health benefits too. Straining whey removes some part of lactose, fat and sugar which decreases its calorie content. For those obsessed with Protein, Greek yoghurt contains twice the amount of yoghurt than the traditional variety. Sodium content in greek yoghurt is half that of the traditional counterpart and hence makes it suitable for patients suffering from hypertension or kidney disorders.
