Low-Fat Greek Yogurt

Published May 1, 2011. From Cook's Illustrated.

Overview:

Low-fat Greek yogurt can be a nice compromise between the über-rich full-fat version and the leaner nonfat style. We sampled four brands of plain, unflavored low-fat (2%) Greek yogurt, comparing them in blind tastings straight from the container and mixed with cucumbers, garlic, and herbs in our recipe for tzatziki sauce. While all four brands received “recommended” scores from our tasters, our favorite was “super-creamy” with “great dairy flavor” in both applications. Other brands fell short for being slightly too tangy or even sour and sharp. (Note: For comparison, fat and protein levels are shown for a 6-ounce serving.)
