New Yogurt Innovations

Whether they are focusing on healthful toppings, new flavors or the microbiome, nouveau yaourt manufacturers are coming out with a steady stream of innovations. And consumers are responding with vigor, as shown by the yogurt category’s healthy growth, outpacing overall food sales.

Yogurt’s nutritional benefits are hard to deny. Its base of milk delivers a wealth of nutrients, including calcium, potassium and vitamin D. Two-thirds of Americans don’t meet the dietary guidelines for dairy, but even a modest increase in daily consumption of low-fat or nonfat yogurt could go a long way toward filling that gap.

Consumers are also embracing the fact that yogurt can be a vehicle for novel bioactive compounds designed to treat specific conditions, such as heart disease and diabetes. Several of these compounds, such as soluble fiber and phytosterols, have been successfully introduced in spoonable yogurt products, and others, like g-aminobutryic acid (GABA), have shown promise.

One example of this is Chobani Zero Sugar*, a new full-fat yogurt with no added sugar. The brand starts with milk that has been filtered to reduce naturally occurring sugar, then uses a combination of traditional fermentation and cutting-edge natural sweetener technologies to get rid of what remains. The result is a yogurt that has no added sugar and a range of flavor options, from strawberry and mixed berry to mango hibiscus and bourbon vanilla. Our tasters loved this option for its creamy texture and delicious flavors. It’s available in 5.3oz single-serve cups.
