A "Greek" Yogurt That's a Trojan Horse?

By December 11, 2012

Follow me on:

A lawsuit against General Mills foods was thrown out by a judge who suggested the consumer who filed the claim should take it up with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Apparently, the Greek yogurt in question was fortified with a milk powder which is not among the ingredients allowed in a "yogurt" product in the United States, Greek or otherwise.

Don't get me started - there are no "Greek" yogurts that I know of that are made in the United States that bear much resemblance to the ambrosial yogurts to be found in Greece. Even Fage, a Greek company now producing in the United States, had to reformulate to comply with FDA requirements, skips the sheep's or goat's milk, and has fallen for the "low-fat" craze. (I was a late convert to the joys of Greek yogurt, having fallen hard for it one memorable morning on a hotel terrace in Crete, so forgive my fervor on this point.)
