DSM’s new freeze-dried Delvo® cultures support sustainable production of set yogurt
Set yogurt is an appealing product for many consumers in the Middle East, because of its healthy appeal, naturalness and authentic characteristics. This new range of freeze-dried Delvo cultures was developed to address local and regional different taste and texture preferences. It provides more options for set yogurts with firmer textures and flavors, ranging from mild to authentic. An added benefit of this new range is that it results in no or reduced levels of undesirable liquid whey over shelf life, which contributes to improved consumer quality perception.
Producers of set yogurt also benefit from the production characteristics specific to these freeze-dried cultures. Handling these cultures is easier and more cost-effective. The cultures also deliver a fast fermentation result, allowing more flexibility in production and decreased processing time. Furthermore, the low post acidification properties result in a stable set yogurt that is optimally conserved during its shelf life, even in challenging storage conditions.
Rolando Saltini, EMEA Marketing Manager for Cultures at DSM Food Specialties, explains: “We are proud to deliver a range of unique, freeze-dried cultures which can target different consumer preferences within the Middle East region, while at the same time enabling yogurt producers to improve the environmental footprint of their set yogurt production. The cultures perfectly match consumer demand for natural and high-quality set yogurts, with limited undesirable liquid whey on the top of the yogurt, as well as a robust texture”.
