After the launch of SoFlexi, first concept of the SoUnik range, Epi Ingredients, a subsidiary of the French company Laïta, is announcing SoBenefik, a high-protein yogurt concept produced only with ultra-filtered dairy powders.

Designed to illustrate the unique features of Epi Ingredients’ offering, SoUnik is a range of on-trend finish product concepts developed to help food, beverage and nutrition manufacturers visualize what they can do with the company’s ingredients.

Mathieu Lucot, marketing manager at Epi Ingredients, said, “The goal for Epi Ingredients is not to sell these concepts. With this range of finished products, we are merely aiming at driving innovation, showcasing the company’s application expertise and dairy ingredients know-how as well as promoting the use of our specialty ingredients, in this case, native protein Epiprot 60 UL, in new product developments.​”

Showcased at events

SoBenefik is a protein-packed yogurt with 8% protein, live cultures and a rich texture while being low-fat. This is made possible with the use of Epiprot 60 UL, a native milk protein concentrate produced directly from fresh milk through a cold filtration process allowing for minimal denaturation and optimal functional and nutritional properties.

The product is produced using dairy powders, cultures and water. According to Epi Ingredients, this makes it interesting for markets where the fresh milk supply may be limited, or where preserving the integrity of fresh raw milk can be challenging.

SoBenefik was developed with the end-consumer in mind, as a clean, convenient and affordable smart snacking option for increasingly time-deprived modern consumers.

Epi Ingredients will be showcasing SoBenefik alongside its other products at Gulfood Manufacturing (November 6-8, Dubai) and Health Ingredients Europe (November 27-29, Frankfurt).
