What is it about?

The fortification of yogurt with different plant additives such as fruits pieces and plant extracts becomes a common strategy to fight the deficits of nutrition-related diseases. However, this solution can lead to changes in the structural properties of the product as well as its consistency and sensory attributes.

Why is it important?

As plant extracts can affect the physiological activity of yogurt bacteria and the textural and rheological properties of the product, the design of plant extract-fortified yogurt formulations forms an important process key for controlling the quality attributes of the product. Yogurts produced with bioactive compounds using plant extracts can be regarded as a functional food.


We hope this study can help dairy manufacturers for optimizing the formulation of their plant-extract yogurts.
