Yes, it is true that condiments often make a meal, but they are also the source for a number of hidden calories that can bring a would-be healthy meal option into the caloric “danger zone”.  Mayo and sour cream are two common “hidden calorie” offenders.  Sure, they add flavor, but they also bring along unnecessary calories and cholesterol.  Today, I will introduce you to Kronos Fat Free Greek Yogurt – a perfect substitute that will enhance some of your menu items by keeping the calories down, without sacrificing flavor or texture.

Greek yogurt’s popularity has been on the rise with consumers.   In today’s age of menu transparency, Greek yogurt is a wonderful alternative that provides a number of health benefits without sacrificing flavor.  Kronos Greek Yogurt contributes twice the amount of protein found in “regular” yogurt, and is great source of calcium.   It also contains live active cultures and probiotics, which play a significant role in healthy digestion.

So you might be asking yourself, what makes Greek yogurt “Greek”?  In order to achieve that distinctive thickness and tart flavor found in authentic Greek yogurt, the milk protein solids must be separated or strained to remove the whey (liquid).  This process leaves behind a beautiful thick, silky product that now contains twice the amount of protein found in typical yogurts – with zero percent fat.

Kronos Greek yogurt is a perfect 1:1 substitute for mayonnaise and sour cream – providing the same creamy texture and flavor, with only a fraction of the calories.  Try our Greek yogurt in your favorite chicken, potato or pasta salad recipes.  Kronos Greek yogurt is also heat-stable, which means it works perfectly in cake batters, pancakes and even macaroni and cheese.

As you can see, the possibilities are truly endless.  So enjoying your favorite recipes can now be done so guilt-free, by removing those high calorie condiments and substituting Kronos Greek yogurt.  Please visit our website for more delicious recipe ideas.

    Thank you for the explanation on Greek v. regular yogurt. So is the Whey the fatty/calorie part of yogurt? Is Kronos selling their Greek Yogurt to the retail market? If so, where in the Chicago area?

    Thank you.

      Thank you for your question. We use only non-fat skim milk to manufacture our Greek Yogurt, so fortunately we don’t have the need to remove any “fatty or high calorie parts”. The whey is simply the liquid that separates from the milk curd (solids). The whey may be used to make ricotta and/or brown cheeses. It is also commonly used in sports drinks containing “whey protein concentrate”.

      Our Greek Yogurt is only available to the foodservice channel at this time. Thank you for your interest in Kronos and our products.

    Hi, we currently own a restaurant and use many of your products. Gyros, baklava tzatziki,pita,your phyllo for spanakopita etc. Recently the past six months we & our customers have noticed a change in the texture & flavor of your tzatziki sauce. Same packaging so I know we get the right product but it does not look or taste the same. We do prefer your old recipe and we would like to know if you will be bringing back the best tzatziki sauce there ever was? Please!!!
    Thank you for your time
