“Greek yogurt is really just sour cream”

Greek yogurt has been compared to sour cream. There are differences: yogurt is made of fermented milk, while sour cream is made of fermented dairy cream.

“so ‘greek yogurt’ is a fancy description 4 sour cream?” was posted on Twitter by • ROSALINDA • on May 31, 2009. “yeah, I’m pretty sure this thick Greek yogurt is sour cream. you proud of yourselves, Greeks?” was posted on Twitter by notfiredyet on September 18, 2009. “Greek yogurt is sour cream!!!” was posted on Twitter by T on October 25, 2011. “Plain Greek yogurt is basically sour cream” was posted on Twitter by Retro Ruby Doll on August 9, 2013. “Okay, people, level with me. Greek yogurt is really just sour cream and this is all a big practical joke, right?” was posted on Twitter by Adam Clark on November 12, 2013.

“Greek yogurt is just sour cream that joined a fraternity” and “Greek yogurt is just sour cream that’s joined a sorority” are related jokes. “Sour cream is just savory yogurt” is a related saying.


Wikipedia: Strained yogurt
Strained yogurt, Greek yogurt, yogurt cheese, sack yoghurt, or kerned yogurt is yogurt that has been strained to remove most of its whey, resulting in a thicker consistency than unstrained yogurt, while preserving yogurt’s distinctive sour taste. Like many types of yogurt, strained yogurt is often made from milk that has been enriched by boiling off some of its water content, or by adding extra butterfat and powdered milk. In Europe and North America, it is often made from low-fat or fat-free milk. In Iceland, a similar product named skyr is made.

Strained yogurt is generally marketed in North America as “Greek yogurt” and in Britain as “Greek-style yoghurt”, though strained yogurt is also widely eaten in Levantine, Eastern Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, Central Asian and South Asian cuisines, wherein it is often used in cooking (as it is high enough in fat content to avoid curdling at higher temperatures).

Wikipedia: Sour cream
Sour cream (in North American English, Australian English and New Zealand English) or soured cream (British English) is a dairy product obtained by fermenting regular cream with certain kinds of lactic acid bacteria. The bacterial culture, which is introduced either deliberately or naturally, sours and thickens the cream. Its name comes from the production of lactic acid by bacterial fermentation, which is called souring. Crème fraîche is one type of sour cream with a high fat content and less sour taste.
