A problem has arisen in the popularity of Greek yogurts in America and it may open the way for new jobs creations. Specifically, the industry creates too much acid whey waste to dispose of properly and methods of recycling and disposal are needed. This will likely result in more jobs, especially in New York State, which is one center of production.

Many small farmers describe feeding whey from home-made yogurt to their livestock and this works well. However, Greek yogurt’s acid whey is as acidic as orange juice and contains lots of sugar. This is not good for cows especially.  Cheese whey is also usually fine for livestock, because it is not acidic, but what is termed sweet whey (meaning high pH).

Som Greek yogirt made in America is not even greek style and is fulll of additives and filler. Compare the most famous brands of American-made Greek yogurt HERE. You may be surprised.
