Issue Summary

The largest growth category within the dairy market is yogurt, with a 7.4 percent increase in sales from 2015 to 2016, according to Euromonitor International. Achieving an appealing texture and mouthfeel is no small feat with a fermented, refrigerated dairy product. Whether set, stirred, drinkable or Greek style, seemingly simple yogurt is often the result of a necessarily complex formulation of ingredients such as gums, stabilizers, cultures, protein and fiber.
