There’s an increasing demand for yogurt products, with the market focusing more on taking care of their overall health. According to a study released by Future Market Insights in July 2020, the global market is predicted to grow at CAGR of over 8% by 2030.
In response to this need, Arla Foods Ingredients recently launched the Nutrilac® FO-7875. This ingredient, when incorporated in yogurt and yogurt drinks, will bring up protein content. The average levels is range from 5 to 9 percent, but with Nutrilac® FO-7875, protein grows to 11 percent at 0.8 percent fat.
The product sports a smooth and creamy texture, without the need to add stabilizers. This also supports the push in the industry to manufacture more clean-label food items.
Ignacio Estevez, Application Manager, South America at Arla Foods Ingredients, said: “Nutrilac® FO-7875 meets a range of market needs. It can be used to create clean-label yogurts that are not only rich in high-quality protein, but also low in fat, as well as smooth and creamy. This combination of benefits will allow even more manufacturers to expand their lines to include premium products that enhance brand image. We’re particularly excited about the unprecedented opportunities it offers in South American markets, where manufacturers will benefit from reduced transit time and no import fees.”
