Enzymes for yogurt
Unlock your yogurt's hidden potential
Consumers focus on health when they shop for food, and yogurt is no exception. That’s why many opt for low-fat, low-sugar, and high-fiber yogurts. But amidst all these claims, consumers also look for cleaner labels, which is a challenge when healthier yogurt profiles demand additional ingredients.
With enzymes, uncover the natural qualities of your raw dairy while delivering delicious and healthier yogurt to your consumers.
Lactose-free yogurt with low sugar
After infancy, an estimated 65% of the world's population is less able to digest lactose. That means that a large part of the world's population could benefit from lactose-free dairy. There are also growing numbers of health-conscious consumers who see lactose-free as a healthier option.
Our lactase enzymes convert lactose into two easily digestible sugars, glucose and galactose. That allows you to develop yogurt that is both low-sugar and low-lactose.

Low-fat yogurt with great texture
Low-fat yogurt is prone to syneresis. Adding modified starch or gelatin is one way to prevent whey separation in low-fat yogurts. But these stabilizers lengthen products’ ingredients lists, which is not a consumer-attractive option. The alternative is to add dairy proteins such as skimmed milk, but these will impact your cost.
Galaya® Prime is a liquid transglutaminase that helps build a stronger protein network during acidification. The result is a firmer, more viscous texture with improved water-holding capacity. That means you can replace stabilizers and texturizers and still get the creamy texture consumers want in low-fat yogurts. Download the Galaya® Prime application sheet to know more.
High-fiber yogurt with low sugar
59% of consumers are more likely to buy dairy products with higher fiber content, according to a Novozymes/Lindbergh study. At the same time, consumers want to cut their sugar intake. One way to meet those needs is to reformulate with sweeteners and fiber ingredients. But these ingredients may impact label-conscious consumers' perception of your products. Our enzymes can help. By converting sugar into dairy-based fiber, they help you give consumers more fiber, less sugar and a clean label.
