Plant-based yoghurts are becoming increasingly popular with consumers around the world and have a global CAGR of a whopping 18% from 2021 - 2026. However, To succeed in this competitive market manufacturers need to replicate the stability, mouthfeel, texture and creaminess that consumers love from their dairy-based counterparts and that can be a challenging process.
With stabiliser-blend Palsgaard® AcidMilk 310 in the mix, it won't be.

In Palsgaard's 2021 survey of 1,307 consumers in Mexico, France, Russia, the USA, and Vietnam we learned that water separation within plant-based yoghurts is a point of concern for consumers. More than seven in ten respondents (71.8%) said they had noticed water on the surface of their plant-based yoghurt products, with men being more likely to notice this than women. Of the people we surveyed, 90.1% of the men said they had noticed water separation compared with 69.2% of female respondents. Some countries were significantly higher than average here with 79.5% of respondents from the USA and 80.2% of those from Vietnam noticing this issue. While the products are still safe to eat (if consumed within the recommended timeframe), this phenomenon could potentially be off-putting for consumers.
Palsgaard® AcidMilk 310 can help to minimize this effect, thereby improving the visual quality – and the mouthfeel – of the plant-based yoghurt once opened.
Palsgaard is introducing a clean-label stabiliser blend to help ensure plant-based yoghurts can match their dairy counterparts.
