DSM launches stirred yogurt culture

DSM has introduced DelvoFresh YS-140, a new culture in the company’s range for stirred yogurt that is designed to create premium, creamy yogurts with a mild taste. The company says that the new culture lines up with consumer demand for premium yogurts which offer all the health and nutrition they expect with an indulgent, creamy taste for a special treat.

In addition to the nutritional benefits of yogurt, taste and indulgence are becoming increasingly important to modern consumers, DSM believes. Yogurts that are marketed as providing “double indulgence” or having a “soft and creamy texture” are said to be increasingly popular and evidence of opportunities for further differentiation in the yogurt market. DSM says that the new DelvoFresh YS-140 culture for stirred yogurts has been carefully selected to produce a creamy yogurt with a velvety mouthfeel and mild taste that consumers are after in today’s market.

“Yogurt has quickly become a mainstay in the diets of many people,” said Rolando Saltini, Business Manager for Fermented Milk Products at DSM Food Specialties. “Yogurt can be a healthy breakfast, a high-protein pre- or post-workout snack, and it can be an indulgent snack or dessert. Our new DelvoFresh YS-140 is the culture in our range with the best balance between high creaminess and mild taste, delivering to the desire for more indulgence and enabling more yogurt moments in the day.”

The new DelvoFresh YS-140 culture for stirred yogurt is described as a high-performance culture with a fast fermentation time and limited post-acidification at 5°C, meaning it maintains a mild taste during its entire shelf life. It is claimed to be suitable for all types of stirred yogurts, including flavoured or plain yogurt, as well as yogurts with added indulgent flavours such as fruit. DSM says that DelvoFresh YS-140 also offers an attractive cost-in-use.
