RD TOOLKIT

Health professionals—including dietitians, nutritionists and health educators—as well as medical professionals can reference health and nutrition benefits of Greek yogurt mapped back to everyday realities. For you. For your clients. From us.

LESS SUGAR

Since day one Chobani Greek Yogurt has had 40% less sugar than regular fruit yogurt.* The sugar in Chobani Greek Yogurt comes from natural sources—fresh milk, fruit and natural evaporated cane juice. Rather than solely focusing on the amount of a singular food component —such as sugar — public health advocates urge a broader approach to nutrition.

SNACK SMARTER

Cravings happen. But swapping a snack for a more nutrient-intense option can have positive effects. We've charted how common snacks stack up, and it's definitely worth checking.

*Chobani® Greek Yogurt (excluding Plain), 13-17g sugar per 5.3oz (150g) serving; regular fruit yogurt, 29g sugar per 5.3oz (150g) serving based upon most recently reported USDA category data.
