Refer to the basics page for lemon juice substitute.

Greek yogurt can be made from plain natural yogurt by straining it.


 “Fresh yogurt, natural, plain or vanilla” is listed in the 2011 version of the RPAH Elimination Diet Handbook as low chemical. The previous 2009 version listed “Yogurt” as moderate in Amines. The definition of “fresh yogurt” in the 2011 version is not clear.  All recipes on this site use the moderate amines rating for yogurt. If you are using fresh yogurt then the amine level may be low.
