Review of Better Whey of Life Nonfat Yogurt

Food Review: Better Whey of Life Yogurt

You know I love a good pun, and I love yogurt, so how could I not try this new yogurt called Better Whey of Life? Made with whey protein — a favorite of weight-lifting types — each six-ounce cup of the creamy nonfat yogurt contains 15 to 17 grams of protein. That's significantly more than most other yogurt brands, which typically contain five to eight grams of protein, but on par with many Greek yogurts.

The whey base is not only supposed to keep you feeling full and full of energy, but it's also designed to help you slim and tone your figure. I can't really vouch for the latter claim, but I definitely noticed this yogurt stayed with me well until lunchtime. To see what I thought and what a serving looks like,


Better Whey yogurt comes in five flavors, including peach mango and vanilla; I tried plain, strawberry banana, and the trendy acai mixed berry. All of them have 0.5 grams of fat and 145 calories, aside from the plain, which has just 130.

I am not usually a fan of sweet yogurt, but with this brand, I preferred the flavored to the plain. They were just barely sweet, and the base flavor (I'm guessing from the whey) has a slightly sour, earthy taste, like sour cream or even cottage cheese. In the plain version, it wasn't terribly appetizing, but with the fruit flavors, it was a perfect way to cut the sweetness. I'd imagine the effect works equally well in vanilla.

The texture is thick and hearty but not as creamy as Greek yogurt, so if you want the protein of the Greek stuff without the distinctive texture, Better Whey is an excellent option. It's a highly satisfying and full-bodied yogurt. You can buy it at Whole Foods and other natural and specialty stores, so find one near you.

Or you could just strain your plain yogurt to get rid of the extra water in helps concentrate the protein as well. It's a lot cheaper than buying expensive yogurts...just put a coffee filter in a strainer over a bowl, dump the yogurt in (plain works best), and use it the next day.
