Indulgent, thick and creamy options
DSM is to launch Greek Legends – a range of new yogurt cultures for Greek yogurt and any other indulgent, thick and creamy yogurts. The distinct cultures can, on their own or in combination with each other, deliver the desired tastes and textures to meet consumers’ preferences.
Greek yogurt has experienced a substantial growth in the U.S. While a decade ago, it only made up 1% of the sales, it now contributes more than half of yogurt sales. Profiting from this trend are new local varieties going global such as Skyr and Australian-style yogurt. Consumers are attracted to yogurt as they can have it all in one product – indulgent, yet healthy with high-protein and attractive taste and sensory characteristics.
Based on DSM’s proven Delvo®Fresh Pure range, these next generation yogurt cultures support yogurt producers to create or reformulate Greek yogurt and expand into the growing range of more indulgent yogurts that are thick and creamy. The cultures provide more options to create high-protein, sweeter or creamier yogurts, with firmer textures, ranging from mild to authentic tastes. Moreover, they offer very high pH stability, adding further value to producers looking to extend product shelf life. In addition, DSM offers a complete solution of probiotics for added digestive health benefits.

“The Greek Legends cultures addresses the market’s needs to develop more flavorful, creamier and protein-rich products to help manufacturers diversify their ranges, while enabling them to improve product quality and shelf-life stability in one solution”
