DuPont Nutrition and Health has recently unveiled its new yogurt starter culture, Yo-Mix M11, to offer a new solution to texture and mouthfeel issues faced by yogurt manufacturers.
The new starter culture creates a consistent, creamy texture by allowing for a longer brewing time in the fermentation tank before the cooling process begins. This preserves texture and allows for a more flexible approach to yogurt processing.
Featuring a blend of selected strains, Yo-Mix M11 includes Streptococcus thermophilus and Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus for direct vat inoculation of manufacturing milk to retain the creamy texture for final yogurt products. This combination of bacterial strains has been selected to address customers’ specific needs in terms of acidification, texture and taste.
The ingredient will also allow for excellent post-acidification control. Yo-Mix M11 is well suited to manufacturers based in countries where the temperatures naturally fluctuate.
