Functional whey proteins deliver premium quality with a clean-label dairy halo
That drinking yoghurt is a category in growth is something all market analysts agree on. But, with many competitors vying for space on store shelves, you need to make sure your products stand out. A clean-label dairy recipe could make that appealing difference.
Consumers around the world increasingly link a natural, clean label with a healthier choice – and many make an active effort to buy foods and beverages that make this claim. This is why our dairy specialists at Arla Foods Ingredients have worked on a whey protein solution that can give your drinking yoghurt a clear market boost.
Stable and smooth for 28 days
As always when producing a fermented dairy beverage, the challenge is to keep the product stable during shelf life, with a minimum of separation and sedimentation.
Our application trials have found a whey-based ingredient that works, keeping drinking yogurt with 2% protein and 1.5% fat stable and smooth throughout a 28-day shelf life.
The best taste and mouthfeel
Compared to a reference yoghurt made with skimmed milk powder and pectin, our solution gives the best stability and mouthfeel, with a less ‘dry’ feel.
The whey protein has a neutral taste that is undetectable in the final product. It’s also easy to add along with the other dairy ingredients and sugar at the start of your process.
