High fat Greek Yogurt? Edmonton

Hi all,

Where can I purchase the highest fat content Greek yogurt? Higher MF% than 10% preferably. Any suggestions or brands would be appreciated. Most dairy is obsessed with low fat but i want some real creamy fatty Greek yogurt.

The highest fat percentage we've been able to find is Krema Greek Style at 11%. Can someone beat that?

Thank you!

    Hmmmmm...have you tried the Italian Centre? Not sure of the fat content, though, but it may be worth a try.

      Liberté Méditerranée Plain is really good. It is 10% MF (the flavoured versions are lower), and has great texture and flavour. I eat it on its own and it is available at most supermarkets. Availability is sometimes erratic on the Plain flavour, but you can always get it at Planet Organic for a premium.

        I tried Krema. I like Liberté Méditerranée a lot more. The Krema was too gelatinous and didn't have as much tang to it imo.

        How high does it go? Highest I have ever seen in the Edmonton area is around 10%.

          Yeah, I was going to say that I think the Krema at 11% is the highest you can get here.

          Also recommend itwillmakeaturd 's idea to go to Planet Organic to get some, they often have a variety of full fat brands and flavours.

          You might also want to try labneh (basically a strained, high fat content yogurt). I have gotten it from middle eastern grocery stores like Elsafadi brothers, and the one (name escapes me) on 163 St. and approx. 95 Ave. It's really nice and creamy, with a thick texture. I'm not sure exactly what the fat content is though.
