I've got a question about German quark in comparison to Greek yogurt. Does anyone know whether they are more or less the same? German quark ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quark_%28food%29 ) is produced by fermenting milk with bacteria and then straining the whey. Since I can't find real Greek yogurt here (I've found out that what they call Greek yogurt is not real Greek yogurt, but normal yogurt with cream added), especially not organic one, I was wondering whether I could eat quark instead. It looks and tastes like Greek yogurt, but I'm still not sure whether it is the same and whether it is ok to eat on the diet.
The German wikipedia article states that quark is usually made by fermentation under the addition of lactic acid bacteria OR rennet. I don't know about Greek yogurt.

I think it is not sold in the U.S., since I remember from a stay in the U.S. that I could not find it in any store when I wanted to prepare a dessert with quark. Therefore I also don't know what would be the right translation into English. Can anyone help?

Its called cottage cheese in the US...

I believe since its a cheese it isn't allowed, but I am no expert on this one.

Now I'm even more confused - we have cottage cheese as well here, but that looks completely different! It looks like this: http://www.marions-kochbuch.de/index/0960.htm

Does anyone know about the difference between quark and Greek yogurt?

Chloe;

I’m sure you have a lot more knowledge about ‘quark’ than I do, but from what I remember, quark is a fermented food such as kefir and considered to be a health food in Germany. If this is the case with yours, it just might be worth a test. If you do decide to try it, remember to test if first eating only a few bites the first day, and I would wait for two full days before eating a few more bites, and watch for reactions, either die-off or Candida symptoms.
