Clean-label, plant-based yogurt alternative
Date 01.15.2019 | Category: News
Yofix Probiotics Ltd., the winner of PepsiCo’s European Nutrition Greenhouse Programme 2018, has launched its first dairy-free, soy-free yogurt alternative line with three fruit flavours.
The products are based on a unique, clean-label formula made from just a few natural ingredients. It is traditionally fermented and contains live probiotic cultures plus the prebiotic fibers that feed them. The new product line is environmentally friendly and vegan, and leaves a low carbon footprint since there is no use of cow's milk and, unlike almond or cashew, does not require a great amount of water. Most importantly, the production process is carefully designed to ensure zero waste. All raw materials utilised in production remain in the final product.
Yofix offers a new-generation yogurt alternative that hits all the marks for flavour, texture, nutrition, and eco-friendliness. It has no added sugars, flavours, colours, or preservatives.
Says Steve Grun, CEO of Yofix: “Yofix will be launched globally and we will be developing new plant-based dairy substitutes for milk, yogurt drinks, cream cheese, coffee creamers and even ice cream. Our proprietary manufacturing technology and formulations are highly flexible and require minimum investment for versatility.”
The company launched the plant-based yogurt line with Strauss Dairies in Israel last month under the ONLY brand in three flavors to target the rapidly expanding demand for vegan, flexitarian, and lactose-intolerance populations. The start-up was the first company to join The Kitchen, the leading food-tech incubator and seed investor in Israel, and part of the Strauss Group Ltd., the main investor in Yofix.
