LOMIRA, WIS. — Grande Yogurt Powder is a new product introduced by Grande Custom Ingredients. The powder may be used in the formulation of coatings, dips, candies, snacks, smoothies, nutrition bars and cereal bars, according to the company.
The product has a high viscosity, water binding capability and the ability to reduce the need for starches and gums.
“Through our proprietary process, we are able to deliver an ingredient that provides a truer, fresher yogurt flavor profile than we can find in the market today,” said Jeff Banes, applied technology manager at Grande Custom Ingredients Group. “In addition, it also has the ability to create a thick creamy texture when mixed with cold liquids, which makes it ideal for smoothie and dip mixes, where no heat is applied.”
