Addressing the growing demand for functional yogurts, Chr. Hansen (Milwaukee) has announced two new ranges of probiotic cultures, YoFlex and Nu-Trish, which aim to deliver ideal texture in low-fat drinking yogurts.

The company states that its new cultures have the potential for avoiding the use of starches and thickeners, which are often an extra cost to producers.

Available in three flavors-mild, classic, and twist-the cultures can provide for a simply yogurt that still imparts the benefits of the company’s Bifiodobacterium BB-12.

“Consumers want the health benefit provided by the probiotic BB-12®, but this must be in combination with good taste and texture, and this is exactly what the new cultures ensure,” says Sarita Bairoliya, global marketing manager for probiotics at Chr. Hansen.

“In addition to the benefits described, our new cultures address a number of problematic areas traditionally linked to producing drinking yogurt such as graininess and off-flavor from thickeners,” says Morten Boesen, marketing manager for fermented milk cultures at Chr. Hansen.

To learn more about the company’s probiotic endeavors with yogurt and its Probio-Tec range with immune and digestive probiotics, check out the company at booth #26047 at SupplySide West in Las Vegas later this month. Samples of probiotic sticks and chewable probiotic tablets will be available.
