Is there a way to make Greek yogurt at home without any boiling fermenting or cooking involved?
My favorite method for making yogurt is to wrap the jar in a warm, moist towel, then setting it in the oven with the oven light on. The light will provide enough heat to ferment the yogurt! After sitting in a warm environment for a few hours, your yogurt is ready to eat!

Why Greek yogurt is bad for you?
1. Because Greek yogurt can be made with bones and bugs. As with many yogurts, some Greek varieties add gelatin, which is made by boiling animals’ skin, tendons, ligaments, or bones. Many also add carmine to make the yogurt appear to contain more fruit than it does.

About 30 times the healthy bacteria going into your tummy in one, delicious serve of homemade yogurt. Can’t argue with that! 24 hour yoghurt also has a higher probiotic count than commercial yogurt because it is fermented longer.
What is the difference between Greek and regular yogurt?

What’s the difference between sour cream and Greek yogurt?
Sour cream is made by adding lactic acid and bacteria to a combination of cream and milk and letting it thicken and sour. Greek yogurt, that thicker product which is more similar in texture to sour cream and creme fraiche is made the same way as regular yogurt, only the whey is removed to thicken it even further.
