    Hi

    Just wondering if anyone has tried both of these and how they compare in taste and in amount of carbohydrates?

    I've always picked up the Greek style and overlooked the Turkish style...whats the difference should I switch?

    Greek Style (per 100g: 3.2g Carbs, 10g Fat)
    Turkish Style (per 100g: 4.2g Carbs, ??g Fat)

    Not sure there is. It may just be a matter of taste.

    I love the Greek one but never seen the Turkish one before. I'll have to look out for it. How many carbs per 100gms?

    The one on the left is really nice, its creamy and delicious and has only 3.7g of carbs per 100g, it also excellent value for money.

    Says 3.2g of carb of my bucket of Greek style yoghurt in the fridge..I agree though, the Greek Style one is creamy and delicious....I just want to know if the Turkish one is even nicer :)

    It probably is 3.2g as I was just going from memory. Before using the Milbona brand I was using Onken yogurt in my morning porrige, that is also creamy and delicious too but doesn't compare price wise with Lidl's yogurt.

    I've tried both and they seem the same. Perhaps it's just so they appeal to different consumers,

    The Turkish one is higher fat I think? I buy the Greek one, mmmm, it is lovely.

    I make my own then I know precisely what's in it - skimmed milk and skimmed milk powder for thickening in a Lakeland yoghurt maker . No fat , no sugar just add vanilla , fruit , cinnamon , nuts , sweetener or whatever you fancy

    I like them all. I was told the Turkish one helped the high fat element of the low carb high fat I am trying to follow.

    I make my own too:
    Full fat milk, starter culture and that's it!
    Later I add nuts/ berries/herbs/spices cheap & delicious!
    Sometime make it with 50/50 milk/cream!

    the turks wouldn't eat greek yoghurt and visa versa..hence the two names :) ..both should be around 10% fat and 4 g carb

    Checked the nutrition label on the Turkish one ...it comes in a little higher on the carbs 4.2g per 100g. OP editted to reflect this
