Fun Facts

  1. Yogurt is a tasty and convenient part of many breakfasts, smoothies, shakes and snacks. It can be healthy to include either nonfat or full-fat yogurt in your eating plan, as both have significant nutritional benefits.
  2. Different brands of plain yogurt can have significant taste variation, but in general, plain full-fat yogurt is more flavorful than nonfat. It has a creamier texture in your mouth and tastes richer because of the fat. It also may seem slightly thicker than nonfat yogurt.
  3. Plain nonfat yogurt may taste a lot like thickened nonfat milk and may seem thin. One exception is nonfat Greek yogurt.
  4. Eight ounces of nonfat, plain Greek yogurt has 130 calories, 23 grams of protein, no fat, 9 grams of carbohydrates and sugar, and 250 milligrams of calcium.
  5. Whether you choose nonfat or full-fat yogurt may depend on how much protein and calcium you get from other foods.
