希望彻底改变饮食、让饮食变得更健康的人通常会把含糖量高的甜酸奶呢换成希腊酸奶。

市面上的酸奶琳琅满目,消费者要选出适合他们的品牌还真是有点难。

所以为了帮消费者一把,澳洲消费倡权团体Choice对22个知名的希腊酸奶品牌进行了口味、脂肪含量和蛋白质含量的测试。

To help shoppers out, Australian consumer advocacy group CHOICE put 22 well known Greek yoghurt brands to the test based on taste, fat levels and protein levels

为此他们请来了五位在食品标准、乳品教育和“调味产业”具有专业背景的专家,从至少一家大型连锁超市找出了包装上含有“希腊”或“希腊风格”字眼的产品进行测试。

随后,专家们以随机顺序对酸奶样品进行盲试,对其作出独立判断,并对产品的“外观、香气、口味和口感”打分,满分是100分。口味和口感占的权重是85%,外观和香气分别占10%和5%。

那么哪些品牌被评为“最美味”呢?

The Coles Greek Style Natural Yoghurt ($3.90 per kilo) came out on top with a score of 86 per cent

排名前三的品牌得分均超过80分,分别是Coles Greek Style Natural Yoghurt(3.90元/千克)、Farmers Union Greek Style All Natural Yogurt(5元/千克)和Tamar Valley Greek Style All Natural Yoghurt(6.30元/千克)。

Coles酸奶被形容为“顺滑”,有“纯净的味道,很浓稠”,Farmers Union酸奶被形容为“拥有浓稠和奶油般细腻的”口感,有“柑橘般的余味”,Tamar Valley酸奶则被认为“令人愉悦”,“口感光滑、浓稠”。

Coles Light Greek Style Natural Yoghurt还被评为最美味的低脂酸牛奶,价格是3.90元/千克,总得分是78分。

In terms of protein levels, however, it was the Chobani Greek Yogurt Plain Whole Milk that was named number one

而在蛋白质含量上,获得第一名的则是Chobani Greek Yogurt Plain Whole Milk。

这款酸奶的价格是6.30元/千克,虽然不是最便宜的,但专家称它是“高蛋白希腊酸奶的优秀典范”。

另一方面,有三款希腊酸奶的得分低于60。

Woolworths 99% Fat Free Pot Set Greek Style Yoghurt的得分只有53分,排名垫底,倒数第二名和第三名分别是Black Swan Low Fat Greek Style Yoghurt(54分)和Easiyo Unsweetened Greek Style(57分)。

With a score of just 53, the Woolworths 99% Fat Free Pot Set Greek Style Yoghurt fell at the bottom of the table, just below the Black Swan Low Fat Greek Style Yoghurt at 54  With a score of just 53, the Woolworths 99% Fat Free Pot Set Greek Style Yoghurt fell at the bottom of the table, just below the Black Swan Low Fat Greek Style Yoghurt at 54

Jalna Pot Set Greek Yoghurt Natural的脂肪含量最高,达到10%,脂肪含量最低的是Chobani Greek Yogurt Plain。

含糖量最高的Lyttos (Aldi) Greek Style Natural Yogurt Thick & Creamy,为8.6%,含糖量最低的是Chobani Greek Yogurt Plain Whole Milk,为2.7%。

'As a general rule of thumb, Greek style yoghurts are higher in protein, thanks to the straining process which sees excess whey removed, and results in thicker, stronger tasting yoghurt,' Susie Burrell said 

那么,希腊酸奶真的是更健康的选择吗?

澳洲营养学家苏茜•伯瑞尔(Susie Burrell)说,酸奶品牌之前的最大区别是,希腊风味酸奶越来越多,而低脂酸奶减少了,通常低脂酸奶会用甜味剂来降低卡路里和含糖量。

“一般来说,希腊酸奶的蛋白质含量更高,这要归功于它的过滤过程,这能去除多余的乳清,使酸奶更浓稠,味道更浓厚。”

“从营养上讲,这是一种更好的产品,同时也给酸奶生产商带来了压力,因为他们需要降低所有酸奶的碳水化合物和含糖量。”
