‘Greek is superior’: Nicholas Jordan taste tests Australian supermarket yoghurts




Are you a fan of Greek yoghurt? Do you think it tastes better than ‘plain’ yoghurt?

Nicholas Jordan put yoghurt to the test to uncover whether Greek yoghurt is better than plain yoghurt and his results are in.

He decided to sample 17 different unsweetened, unflavoured yoghurts and experienced a culture shock in the process. His idea came about during lockdown, where he first trialled a project to test different types of muesli and then brands of yoghurt.

Recently, he did a blind taste test of 17 different yoghurts again, along with eight other yoghurt-loving reviewers who helped him rate them.

They all categorised the yoghurts by thickness, the amount of fat and the amount of protein in each, and then decided to rate the taste and texture.


These were the results:

  • The best Greek yoghurt overall: Farmers Union Greek Style Natural Yoghurt – 8/10
  • The best value yoghurt: Lyttos Greek Style Natural Yoghurt – 7.5/10
  • The best plain yoghurt: Jalna Biodynamic Whole Milk Yoghurt – 6.5/10

And the rest:

  • Attiki Greek Style Natural Yoghurt – 7.5/10
  • Bulla Australian Style Natural Yoghurt – 6.5/10
  • Barambah Organics All Natural Full Fat Yoghurt – 5.5/10
  • Meredith Dairy Natural Goat Milk Yoghurt Probiotic – 5.5/10
  • Yoguri High Protein Greek Strained Yoghurt – 5/10
  • Five: AM Organic Natural Yoghurt 1kg – 5/10
