Greek Yogurt Labeled ‘Super Food,’ Offering Health Benefits And Versatility To Any Meal
LOS ANGELES, Sept. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Consumers in the Northeast United States are now able to enjoy the thick, creamy, great taste of VOSKOS® Greek Yogurt. Sun Valley Dairy, producers of the quality and award-winning VOSKOS® Greek Yogurt, has extended its offering to Stop & Shop, Giant Food Stores, Martin’s Food Markets and Peapod in the Northeast United States.
Greek yogurt has been labeled by many as a ‘super food’ due to its health properties and its versatility in the kitchen. Health benefits range from being a valuable source of protein to helping the absorption of other nutrients. Greek yogurt has twice the amount of protein of regular yogurt and an 8-ounce cup contains almost as much protein as 3 ounces of chicken. Other health benefits include fostering a healthy colon, helping boost immunity and aiding in weight loss.
“Protein consumption is important in order to maintain lean muscle mass and overall physiological functions in the body, ” said Nikko Generales, Certified Fitness Trainer and VOSKOS® “What’s Fresh Blog” contributor. “Greek yogurt is an excellent source of protein and the perfect snack for pre and post workouts.”
Because of its health benefits, consumers use Greek yogurt as more than just a snack. People can enjoy it with fruit in the morning, use it in a salad dressing for lunch, add it to a smoothie for a healthy snack or use it in recipes instead of sour cream at dinner. There are no limits to its use and can be used as a replacement for other high calorie, high fat items like sour cream, mayonnaise and creams. Consumers can find a variety of healthy and delicious recipes at: //www.voskos.com/recipes/
VOSKOS® Greek Yogurt uses a proprietary ProStrain™ method that yields two times more protein, more probiotics and less lactose than regular yogurt. What does that mean for consumers? That means that they can enjoy a delicious snack that is healthier for them with more protein per sugar serving and less guilt! It is also a great option for people who are lactose intolerant since VOSKOS® Greek Yogurt is made with active and live probiotic cultures, which convert lactose to lactic acid, making it more easily digestible. VOSKOS® has now increased its distribution to include the Northeast United States.
