Put your brand in a class by itself with yogurt innovation

Bring indulgent texture, nutrition and clean labels together in innovative yogurt products your consumers will love. Work with us to develop authentic yogurt products, starting from great ideas and selecting the right ingredients that match your processing conditions, all the way to scaling up the concept in your production facilities.

Take advantage of our expertise and capabilities to address yogurt trends such as clean labels, enhanced nutrition, reduced sugar content, low calories and indulgent new textures.

Whether your goal is to improve mouthfeel in a light yogurt, increase viscosity in a premium version or achieve better stability, your yogurt processing conditions are a key factor in choosing the right ingredients. Find the just-right solutions you need in our broad range of starches for downstream or upstream processing conditions.

Consumers have more choices than ever when it comes to yogurt, and manufacturers need to stand out not only in the dairy case but during consumption to help drive purchasing behaviors. Ingredion recently conducted extensive proprietary research and sensory mapping to find out just what consumers want in a yogurt – and why – in order to better understand preferred yogurt texture among different groups of consumers. In addition, we mapped more than 35 commercial yogurt varieties from the North American market, and evaluated 25 preferred texture attributes relating to appearance, taste, flavor and texture. From this research, Ingredion uncovered just how important texture is in motivating consumer liking of yogurt.

Texture is key

Ingredion also conducted three different consumer studies to find out what consumers prefer in a yogurt, and why they purchase the yogurt they do. Texture was found to be a strong driving influence in yogurt preference, and that consumers are willing to pay more for a yogurt with better texture. One key discovery: A smooth and creamy texture with rapid meltaway is preferred by most consumers. By identifying such “sweet spots” of consumer liking, Ingredion can help create the specific textural experiences consumers crave.

Consumers want authentic tastes and unique textures, and they want to recognize the ingredients they read on the labels. You can deliver it all with NOVATION® functional native starches. For example, try new NOVATION® Endura 0100 functional native starch, which withstands the hardest processing conditions, delivering excellent stability and mouthfeel in your final product.

Whether your goal is to minimize calorie content or reduce added sugars while maintaining a clean label, explore our broad range of sweeteners, including ENLITEN® Reb A stevia sweetener. Formulate the perfect sweetness profile using our DIAL-IN® Sweetness Technology or validate your results leveraging our sensory team. Find your sweetness solution at Ingredion.
