Palsgaard introduces a special stabilizer mixture for use in stirred yogurt products
Set and stirred (Swiss-style) yogurts put different demands on emulsifier and stabilizer systems, requiring their own levels of creaminess, firmness and viscosity. With that in mind, Palsgaard A/S is pleased to announce the introduction of Palsgaard AcidMilk 316, a special stabilizer mixture developed especially for use in stirred yogurt products produced from fresh milk. The new stabilizer system creates a very smooth and creamy consistency in stirred yogurt products, as well as a firm texture. It prevents whey separation during distribution and storage. Moreover, it is the ideal choice for producing clean-label stirred yogurt.
Based exclusively on clean-label food ingredients (carefully selected vegetable fibers and natural starch), Palsgaard AcidMilk 316 stabilizer mixture keeps a firm structure and upholds a smooth and creamy consistency in stirred yogurt without the need for any E-number food additives. In addition, the clean-label stabilizer mixture contains none of the following allergens: wheat, crustacean shellfish, egg, fish, peanuts, soybeans, milk or tree nuts.
Palsgaard AcidMilk 316 stabilizer mixture is a new addition to the company’s growing line of emulsifier and stabilizer systems specially designed for set and stirred yogurt and labneh. It should be sprinkled into milk while stirring and prior to pasteurization, homogenization and fermentation. Dosage depends on the composition of the yogurt and the texture required. General recommendations include 0.6 to 1.0% for standard yogurt made with whole milk and 0.8 to 1.2% for low-fat yogurt made with skim milk. In addition, its shelf life is a minimum 24 months from date of production when stored cool and dry in unopened packaging.
Palsgaard AcidMilk 316 stabilizer mixture is Kosher- and Halal-certified.
