Greek Yoghurtein - Greek yogurt powder, fibers, whey and micellar casein | Jarrow Formulas
Jarrow Formulas Greek Yogurtein combines Greek Yogurt with additional high-quality proteins and is optimized with dietary fibers from coconut and isomalto-oligosaccharides as well as apple pectin.
Greek Yoghurtein is a great tasting (lacto) vegetarian protein, calcium and fiber source. The proteins in Greek Yogurtein are highly bioavailable.
Moreover, the inclusion of quick-digesting (whey) and slow-digesting (micellar casein) proteins provide added support for sustained energy levels and muscle replenishment.
The dietary fibers promote digestive health and microfloral ecosystem balance.
Greek Yogurtein is easily mixed with your favorite beverage, to deliver a delicious flavor with a rich and creamy texture.

Jarrow Formulas Greek Yogurtein combines Greek yogurt,whey and micellar proteins with dietary fibers. It is a great tasting lacto-vegetarian protein, and is rich in calcium and fiber. The proteins in Greek Yogurtein are high quality proteins and support sustained energy, and muscle maintenance and synthesis, while dietary fibers promote digestive health and microflora ecosystem balance. Greek Yogurtein has a smooth, creamy texture and mixes easily with liquids.
More Protein than Regular Yogurt
Greek yogurt has gained an increasing share of the US yogurtmarket because of its high protein content. Greek yogurt is made by filtering out water and some of the whey from the rest of the milk proteins to leave a thicker, higher protein product.
The resulting Greek style yogurt also contains less carbohydrates. A 180g serving of Greek yogurt supplies as much protein as 60-90g of lean meat.
Jarrow Formulas’ Greek Yogurtein further fortifies the basic Greek yogurt by supplying 15 grams of protein per serving. This blend provides the taste and creaminess of Greek yogurt plus additional proteins from whey and micellar casein.
By including both fast-digesting protein (whey) and somewhat slower digesting protein (from both Greek yogurt and micellar casein protein), GreekYogurtein helps to support satiety and to sustain muscle synthesis.
Greek yogurt powder also contains immune-supporting metabolites produced by its original fermentation.
Benefits of Whey Protein
Recent research has shown that mixtures of proteins are superior for some purposes because of different digestive and release characteristics; amongst these mixed proteins, research continues to bolster claims that whey be a candidate amongst protein combinations. Whey is a valuable by-product of cheese manufacturing. It provides a good amino acid profile as well as other beneficial factors such as alpha-lactalbumin, beta-lactoglobulin, serum albumin, lysozyme, and immunoglobulins.
Whey protein also tends to provide a higher concentration of essential amino acids than other protein sources. Typically about 25% of the amino acids in whey are branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). BCAAs are readily oxidized as an energy source duringand after stress and exercise.
Whey protein is also rich in cysteine, a precursor to the vital intracellular antioxidant glutathione (GSH). GSH is depleted by oxidative stress that occurs during exercise, immune defense, and healing. In fact some researchers think that whey protein may help play a role in promoting immune health by providing GSH (glutathione) precursors and increasing levels of GSH in the tissues.
Fiber for Balance
Each serving supplies eight grams dietary fiber from Vitafiber™ (isomalto-oligosaccharides) and apple pectin. VitaFiber is FDA-GRAS and Health Canada approved for use as a food ingredient throughout the entire spectrum of food and beverage applications.
It is a soluble prebiotic dietary fiber for human digestive health.
An increased consumption of fiber is associated with support for blood pressure and blood sugar regulation. It is theorized that fibers bind cholesterol and toxins and promote their removal from the system with obvious importance for optimal health.
In addition, maintenance of weight control and satiety are otherbenefits often associated with higher fiber intake as dietary fibers support regularity and intestinal balance.

Add 2 level scoops (or 1 sachet) of powder to 120-180ml water, milk, almond milk, rice milk, soy milk or your favorite beverage.
For a protein smoothie, blend with water and ice, and add fruit to optimize taste.
For a thicker consistency, mix with less liquid as desired.
