The world of cultured dairy is a big one and the shelves are crowded. Health experts continue to tout the many benefits of consuming cultured dairy, including gut health and weight management. This past year some interesting trends have emerged that are poised to help grow and diversify the category even more — bold flavor innovation (including savory flavors), a growing interest in drinkable yogurts and an increase in whole-milk cultured dairy products.
These trends have sparked plenty of product innovation over the last year. Look down the dairy aisles and you will find a slew of new options — drinkable yogurts and kefirs in unique flavors, creative yogurt mix-ins, flavors that play with sweet and spicy, and several whole-milk yogurts, kefir and cottage cheeses.
