The recent launch of Yo-Flex® - a new generation of yogurt cultures from Chr. Hansen - offers exciting possibilities to dairies worldwide. As part of this launch, the company announces the latest launch of a new probiotic yogurt culture called Yo-Fast 20.

New consumer trends create a demand for new products and solutions. Changing times means changing tastes. The most important characteristics of Yo-Fast 20, the latest range of yogurt cultures from Chr. Hansen, are:

  • Mild flavor: Yo-Fast 20 develops a very mild flavor and has high-texturing properties, which make it possible to reduce or even replace the use of additives like stabilizers or gelling agents. This is particularly attractive in children's products. Furthermore, minimal post-acidification guarantees longer shelf life of products.
  • High mouth feel in low-fat products: Yo-Fast 20 offers a high mouth feel and creaminess to low-fat products. These attributes have been very difficult to obtain with traditional cultures.
  • Probiotic: For the last decade some of the most successful products within functional foods have been probiotic fermented dairy products. As part of this growing market, Yo-Fast 20 contains the very well known probiotic strains Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium and L. casei.
