Spoonable Yogurt Alternatives

The appeal of plant-based products continues to grow as consumers continue to seek out more protein options. As a result, the market for yogurt alternatives is evolving quickly. However, creating and fortifying a spoonable yogurt alternative with plant-based protein can be a challenge. Solubility varies as the plant proteins can be hard to hydrate. Unwanted flavor notes can give yogurt alternatives a “beany” taste or make them lumpy, starchy or watery, lacking the structure of dairy yogurt.

Whether you are using soy, pea, coconut, oat, almond or a blend of plant protein sources, delivering that familiar, rich and creamy, dairy-like taste and hug-the-spoon texture is key. CP Kelco can help you achieve your desired viscosity, reduce syneresis and maintain texture over shelf life.
