(1) Greek Yogurt vs (5) Whole Wheat Bread

Mar 30, 2016

Tale of the Tape

Greek Yogurt (1 container): 1g Fat, 6g Carbs, 17g Protein

Whole Wheat Bread (1 slice): 1g Fat, 13g Carbs, 3g Protein

Two very opposite foods. Here we go again with two foods that compliment each other quite well. Here we have a great Carb as it is filling and relatively low in Carbs with a decent amount of Protein (for a Carb) vs a great Protein with a low enough amount of Carb to not ruin your meal. By that I mean you can still eat almost any other healthy Carb and not have to adjust the serving size based on their being too many Carbs in the Yogurt. At this point Carb to Protein they are basically dead even.

On the micro-nutrient front Greek Yogurt provides a bit of calcium and vitamin B-12, where Whole Wheat Bread does offer a solid amount of fiber. Whole Wheat Bread contains Gluten, whereas, Greek Yogurt contains Lactose. It seems for every positive there is an equal positive and for ever negative there is an equal negative.

Both of these foods are great. I think everyone should enjoy both, however, there is one discovery that puts me in favor of the other and only because it is so neck and neck. The FDA does not apparently have regulations for "what Greek Yogurt is," thus manufactures can use anything to make "Greek Yogurt." When buying Greek Yogurt, make sure the main ingredients are milk and live active cultures.

Greek Yogurt is made by straining the yogurt to remove the whey which in turn creates a thicker yogurt. Companies may try and add stuff to regular Yogurt to create the appearance and thickness of traditional Greek Yogurt.

Verdict: (5) Whole Wheat Bread defeats (1) Greek Yogurt

Next Match Up: (2) Spinach vs (3) Shrimp
