Why does dr. Oz like greek yogurt when it has 13+ grams of sugar in it? And he feels so strong about sugar in the diet

That: That is a great question. I can’t answer for dr. Oz but I can provide some basic information about greek yogurt.

This is because it is made with bacteria cultures, which feed on the lactose to make acids which turn milk into yogurt. Yogurt does not cure lactose intolerance (there is no cure). However, lactose intolerant people can eat yogurt with no problems. ...Read more
