DuPont’s YO-MIX Prime yoghurt cultures receive recognition from the China Dairy Industry Association

DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences has clinched the first prize Technology Progress Award for its YO-MIX Prime yoghurt cultures at the 26th Annual Conference of the China Dairy Industry Association (CDIA).

The YO-MIX Prime yoghurt cultures were developed to create ultimate mildness and premium texture for consumers, and provide a new level of indulgence in yoghurt. The cultures are said to allow yoghurt manufacturers save on formulation costs by reducing the amount of skimmed milk powder added to enhance yoghurt texture, enable them to add less sugar while keeping the same sweetness perception, and maintain product quality throughout challenging distribution channels with variations in storage temperature.

Susan Jin, region industry leader, Asia-Pacific for cultures, probiotics, fibres and human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs), DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences, explained: “With ultimate post- acidification control and excellent fermentation performance, our awarded YO-MIX Prime cultures can effectively help yoghurt manufacturers in different regions to overcome post-acidification issues and uncertainties in distribution channels while bringing a mild, clean, smoother and creamy taste to their yoghurt products.”

The CDIA carries out a series of award activities among dairy, machinery and ingredients enterprises during the CDIA annual conference every year, to encourage and ensure the sustainable development of science and innovation in the dairy industry.

Morten Boesen, global product line manager for dairy cultures, DuPont Nutrition Biosciences, concluded “We would like to thank the CDIA for their recognition and endorsement of our YO-MIX Prime cultures. We will redouble our efforts in the product and application innovation of our culture products by working in close collaboration with our Chinese dairy customers, to provide Chinese consumers with healthier, tastier, and higher quality fermented dairy products that are in line with consumer trends.”
