INFORMATION

 Is Greek yoghurt gluten free?

Almost all natural dairy products are gluten free. This includes Greek yoghurt in its purest form, also called plain Greek yoghurt. So in theory, Greek yoghurt is gluten free but read the label as some brands use additives, which results in their plain Greek yoghurt containing gluten.
