A fermented powder containing live cultures that mimic the qualities of yogurt is being promoted in the first of a series of dairy-based products.

Epilac Lowfat Yogurt Powder 48 features in Epi Ingredients’ SoFlexi powdered mix, which is aimed at the food-to-go market.

The powder can be used in a wide variety of foods, such as ice cream, frozen yogurt, and fillings and icings for bakery products, Epi said.

Same bacteria as in yogurt

It contains the same live bacteria (Streptococcus thermophilus​ and Lactobacillus bulgaricus​) as the ones found in yogurt, which are claimed to help balance the gut flora and strengthen the immune system.

Epi said that regardless of the chosen application, Epilac Lowfat Yogurt Powder 48 brings “natural acidity”​ and a “pleasant yogurt flavour as well as a smooth creamy texture”​ to the end product.

SoFlexi is the first product in Epi’s SoUnik range, designed to showcase its ingredients offer.

Epi is the dry ingredients division of French dairy co-operative Laïta.
