It's been nearly 100 years since Elie Metchnikoff first described yogurt as a health food. Since then, manufacturers have added everything from phytosterols to flax to yogurt, hoping to make a good thing even better. They've trimmed the fat and cut the sugar. They've made it drinkable and squeezable.
One of the best things that yogurt manufacturers can add to yogurt is a healthy dairy ingredient that was once considered a byproduct. Yes, we're talking about whey. With careful selection of the right whey ingredient, yogurt processors can improve texture, boost nutrition and enjoy manufacturing benefits.
