DSM-Firmenich has announced the launch of DelvoFresh Pioneer starter cultures for pH stability throughout mild yogurt production and shelf life.
The launch is designed to address yogurt manufacturers’ need for high-quality ingredients, stable production processes and consistent mildness throughout shelf life.
With the new cultures, yogurt pH is “extremely stable” for up to 60 days in cold storage, which DSM-Firmenich says is a “significant improvement” compared to other cultures for mild yogurt recipes.
DSM-Firmenichs new cultures lead to significant and measurable reductions in post-acidification compared to other mild cultures and pH stability is apparent with more challenging storage conditions, such as higher temperatures. The new cultures are ideal for high-value recipes such as smooth, creamy yogurts and mild, reduced sugar yogurts with BFY appeal.
Karoline Kjaerulff, global business development manager, fermented milk and plant, DSM-Firmenich, said: “We’re investing heavily in culture development as we know the possibilities are near limitless, and more taste, texture and health benefits are out there to discover. These new cultures complement our fermented dairy toolkit of starter, bioprotective and probiotic cultures, enzymes, hydrocolloids and nutritional solutions.”
She continued: “The new DelvoFresh Pioneer cultures give yogurt manufacturers the tools needed to produce delicious, mild yogurt – consistently. The ideal pH stability enabled by these new cultures is what sets them apart, and for dairy manufacturers consistency and flexibility really are key to success. This launch was made possible by our biotechnology powerhouse which brings together renowned scientists, application experts and cutting-edge technology to solve the food industry’s biggest challenges.”
