Re: Greek Yoghurt

Is there a difference between Greek and Turkish yoghurt? I usually buy the latter one in Migros.

I was wondering that myself as I saw both the Yogos and a big tub of Turkish yogurt - I think it was called Hazal? I bought the Yogos because it was a smaller portion...

Re: Greek Yoghurt

The beauty of Hazal is that you can use it for sauces and baking too. Therefor the big pot doesn't last that long.

Re: Greek Yoghurt

If you live in Zurich, there is a great Greek restaurant that also does import of greek products and it has Greek Yoghurt.
The place itself from outside looks quite "cheap" but the food is really great.
I would say it is quite authentic.
I dont know the name of the place, it is located in Grubenstrasse. Near by an Aldi located a bit further in that same street.

Regards,
Jacobo.

Re: Greek Yogurt

Not sure if this meets your needs, but some coop stores sell fage total yogurt. Larger coops in your area might. Coop also has its own brand of greek style yogurt - ok in a pinch. Some Migros stores sell a turkish style yogurt in 1 kg tubs - hazal is the brand. There are also numerous turkish stores with turkish style yogurts that might suit you. Don't know where specifically in Olten, unfortunately.

When all else fails, i buy a regular plain yogurt and drain it. Not quite the same, but ok.

Re: Greek Yogurt

Try a search here on EF using the different spellings. Yoghurt, Jogurt, Yogurt. This has been asked many times, and there are some good suggestions including stores and brands.

Re: Greek Yogurt

I always get my Turkish yoghurt at Otto's Radikal discount store in Wohlen. I see they also have an outlet in Olten, have a look...

Re: Greek Yogurt

In Turkish it is called "suzme yogurt", I believe they sell them in Turkish shops.

Re: Greek Yogurt

I usually get this stuff from my local Coop. Is it not Greek yoghurt (well, proper Greek yoghurt)?

Re: Greek Yogurt

Actually really Greek yoghurt in Zurich?

apart from Total, we usually buy Turkish, we found by the litre, Hazel (name on packet) in Radical once. We do no go to Radical often & they do not always have it. Do not think we have seen in our Otto's but will keep looking.

Milk products are expensive in Switzerland, so maybe something to do with difficulty to find.

If you have any Greek or Turkish neighbours/work colleagues ask them.

Good luck

Re: Greek Yogurt

no this isn't real greek yogurt, its just yogurt with cream added to make thicker.. and the protein content is a fraction of what true greek yogurt is, thank you all for your suggestions!

Re: Greek Yogurt

The Migros in the zurich hb sells hazal, as does the zurich airport migros.

I once bought a turkish style yogurt in a turkish store and found plant oil as one of the ingredients! Ick! It wasn't hazal, and now i look at the ingredients carefully.

Re: Greek Yogurt

the hazal isnt the same, it is also higher in fat and lower in protein, i think i am just out of luck unless they start selling Fage again. Thanks again for all the input!

Re: Greek Yogurt

I buy it regularly at Globus (although they have been out this week which is unusual) or Jemolli (which is a bit more expensive). Unfortunately both only have the smaller containers.
