Why our yoghurt ingredients are at the leading edge
Knowing and anticipating consumer desires in a fast-growing sector like this is essential. So our product range and innovation efforts are focused around some of the key consumer trends worldwide:
‘Better for you’. Less fat, less sugar in regular products
Our ‘better-for-you’ ingredient range delivers yoghurts with familiar taste and texture, but with less fat and/or sugar.
Fewer ingredients, clean label
Consumers increasingly check the label of their yoghurt, looking for products without artificial ingredients. Our advanced range of dairy ingredients has been created with functional properties that reduce the need for additions.
Use our range of functional proteins for a rich, superior taste and texture to improve your existing yoghurt portfolio, or create new products, to meet your consumers’ needs for ‘treat’ or indulgence products.
High protein, low fat with no compromise on flavour or texture
Yoghurts that are high in protein and low in fat are the fastest growing product segment in this category. But they still have to be delicious, and that’s possible with our range of ingredients.
They’ll enable you to deliver creamy texture to low-fat yoghurts, or create Greek-style stirred, spoonable or drinking yoghurts with over 10% protein and low stringency or sourness – and so much more.
We’ve developed a range of ingredients that will let you improve productivity and ease price pressure on yoghurts that might have little differentiation.
From stirred, set and drinking yoghurts to fermented milk drinks, Greek, quark and petit Suisse, our ingredients have your needs covered.

Casein for food and non-food applications in acid or rennet process options. Casein is the largest single protein found in human and cow’s milk. It aids efficient nutrition and plays a valuable role in nutritional products. Our rennet casein also has a range of other uses, including processed cheese production.
Caseinates suitable for a wide variety of uses from nutritional beverages to soups and sauces. High in protein, caseinates are the water-soluble version of caseins, and some of our caseinates offerings can provide slow release of amino acids.
