Greek yogurt has been hugely popular over the last few years. Epigamia has introduced it in India and the company claims it to be the first Greek yogurt of India. How epic is Epigamia Greek Yogurt really is?
Greek yogurt is made by straining excess liquid whey, lactose and sugar out of the regular yogurt. This straining results in lesser calories and more protein. Additionally the good bacteria provides more health benefits. I tried the of this yogurt recently and found it quite impressive. It is creamy, thick and a little tangy.
Epigamia highlights the below features:
- Purest cow’s milk used
- Protein good for muscle building
- Source of calcium
- 100% vegetarian
- Good bacteria help in digestion and lowering bad cholesterol
- Contains no added colour or flavor
- Pasteurised double toned milk
- Milk solids
- Stabiliser and thickener pectin E440
- Added active cultures: S. Thermophilus, L.Bacillus Delbrueckii Subsp. Bulgaricus
A 100 gm serving has protein content of 8.21 gm, calcium of 175.52 mg, Vitamin C of 2.2 mg.
It is available in seven flavors.
Natural flavor has no added sugar. Few other flavors that I saw had some added sugar, although minimal.
Epigamia Greek Yogurt can be eaten directly or used along with other foods such as smoothies, spreads, etc. It is also a good option for a snack in between the meals and can be had without any guilt. It needs refrigeration and needs to be eaten as soon as it is opened.
Each bottle contains 90 gm and it can be comfortably eaten in one sitting. Also at Rs.35 per bottle (Rs.38 for flavoured ones), it is a good value for money. I would definitely buy it again. It has a rare combination of being both delicious and healthy.
