Stonyfield Oikos Organic yogurt to be specific.
Now, if you’re anything like the Ren Man, you may be wondering what on earth is Greek yogurt?!
(is he really as living under a rock as I teased? have you not yet heard of the Greek ‘Gurt either?! please to chime in below.)
Here’s some info from the Stonyfield peeps:
Oikos Organic is the only nationally distributed organic Greek yogurt on the market today.
Called “yiaourti” in Greece, Greek yogurt is thicker than regular yogurt. Authentic Greek yogurt like Oikos Organic owes its lavish texture to a centuries-old straining process that removes the whey (liquid) from the yogurt.
For hundreds of years, Greeks have prized strained yogurt for its richness and creaminess. Before the time of mechanical refrigeration, Greeks also knew that yogurt stayed fresh longer with the liquid strained off. Today we know that straining makes Greek yogurt naturally richer in protein than regular yogurt, and lower in carbohydrates.
Oikos Organic Greek yogurt reflects that tradition as a tangy, incredibly lush yogurt with twice the calcium of the leading Greek yogurt.
