Yogurt

Good morning all! I am new to lchf, but not not to low-carb eating in general. But I was wondering what kind of yogurt you all eat and how do you count the carbs? Thank you in advance :-)

Welcome to LCHF!! I make my own yogurt for the most part and use whole milk and hwc. I strain it to remove as much of the whey as possible. I count 3g carbs for .5 cup.

When I buy yogurt, I get the highest fat and plain (no additives) and strain it at home. Again, I count 3g for 1/2 a cup.

Oh, I am sorry ~ I should have explained that the majority of carbs hang out in the whey. It is also nice to have a very thick yogurt!

Overnight as a minimum.

If you buy whole milk Greek yogurt it's already "strained". If you have a Trader Joe's nearby they have a very nice full fat Greek yogurt and if you want you can stir in some heavy cream for more fat.

Clackley makes her own yogurt so straining is just another step in the process. But not many people strain their store-bought yogurt.

Hi, I make my own out of heavy whipping cream. I inoculated the first batch with regular off the shelf plain yogurt, then used the rest as a face/hair treatment (yes, you can!). There are recipes online. Whole fat heavy whipping cream makes ultra good yogurt. If you like it sweet, the berries are the way to go, perhaps some sugar-free coffee syrup.

I like Elli brand's Whole Milk (Full Fat) Creamy German Style Quark. It's technically not yogurt...it's a kind of cheese). I like that it's (usually) lower in carbs and higher in protein than yogurt.

When I do buy store bought yogurt, I do strain that as well. The reasoning is that I will effectively remove some of the carbs from the whey. It is surprising how much whey is in store bought Greek yogurt.

Seems I read on here years ago about the culture in yogurt attacking some of the carbs. Does this sound familiar to anyone? I was thinking there was a different way to calculate the carbs in yogurt.

Yes. The carbs are consumed by the bacteria. I arrived at the compromise of adjusting the carb count to half after removing the whey ( where those carbs have gone).

Greek

I find most traditional greek yogurts are the best for high fat content and low carbs and additives. Although as always you should read the nutritional facts on the back becomes some brands can be tricky.

I eat homemade plain whole-milk yogurt 4-5 times a week. I don't worry too much about the carbs.

"Therefore, you can eat up to a half cup of plain yogurt, buttermilk, or kefir and only count 2 grams of carbohydrates (Dr. Goldberg has measured this in his own laboratory.) One cup will contain about 4 grams of carbohydrates. "

From "The Yogurt Exception" on Low-carb luxury site.
