My Yogurt

My Yogurt

Consumers appreciate yogurt as healthy product. While yogurt is an ancient food “invented” to increase stability and health benefits of milk, product innovations are on the horizon addressing the following consumer needs: 1) Improving sustainability: GHG emission saving by reducing milk use in new processes, repl. milk by plant proteins and lower eco-footprint of milk using novel feed ingredients. 2) Improving health & nutrition: new bio-ingredients promise fat and sugar reduction with winning taste experience; pro-and prebiotics promise health benefits by microbiome modulation. 3) Improving consumer trust: Involvement of consumers in product development, catering towards their preferences. The My Yogurt activity, with the connected "Digital Twin Management" and Food Solutions Program turns these promises into innov. products (incl. non-yogurt) produced at pilot scale, validated by consumer studies focusing on the specific needs of Millennials and our growing elderly population.
