Which Yogurt Is Right for You? (Infographic)

How 4 dairy and non-dairy options stack up

Which Yogurt Is Right For You?

Yogurt is a popular snack that’s here to stay. Whether you’re trying to build muscle or lose weight, you’ve got more yogurt options than ever. Below, we compare dairy varieties — both Greek-style and regular — with non-dairy varieties. Some provide more protein, calcium and vitamin D. Others are better for vegans or those with dairy sensitivities. We explain which yogurts contain probiotics, and offer tips on incorporating yogurt into your diet.

A final note: Whatever yogurt you choose, avoid the empty calories in “fruit-on-the-bottom” varieties. Buy plain yogurt, and add your own fruit for natural sweetness that’s packed with nutrition!
