Total 2%

staff comment "Full-bodied, rich, almost like crème fraîche."
interesting bite This Greek yogurt is thicker than American-made yogurt because the whey is strained off.

Horizon Organic Fat Free

staff comment "Creamy, with a slightly tart, lemony flavor."
interesting bite Horizon’s founders lobbied to pass the Organic Standards Act, which came into effect in October 2002.

Dannon Premium Lowfat

staff comment "Silky, with a pleasantly mild taste."
interesting bite The company recently downsized its single-portion cups from 8 ounces to 6—and dropped the price, too.

Old Chatham Sheepherding Company

staff comment "Lovely thick consistency and a sharp, tangy flavor."
interesting bite Old Chatham yogurt is made with sheep’s milk, which is higher in protein than cow’s milk.
