Dutch dairy culture manufacturer Royal CSK is expanding its portfolio of yogurt cultures with the addition of an extensive range of new cultures designed for stirred, set, concentrated and drinking yogurt applications.

The products are available under the Ceska​Star brand.

CSK’s marketing manager, Christian Hemmer, said, “For dairy manufacturers, catering to scattered consumer preferences can be challenging.

“Consumers today want authentic products that contribute to a healthy lifestyle, while also seeking indulgence experiences. In yogurts, there has been a trend towards milder flavors, without losing yogurt aroma. With our expanded Ceska Star yogurt culture portfolio, we offer manufacturers what they need to tap into these trends and demands. The robust cultures fit in our customers’ production processes.”

The new cultures include selected strains of Lactobacillus acidophilus​ and Bifidobacterium lactis,​ enabling manufacturers to deliver new yogurt applications from berakfast yogurt with fruits to yogurt drinks taken as a high-protein snack.

New yogurt range

Dr Wilco Meijer, CSK research director, said the new yogurt culture range is the result of many years of extensive screening.

“The investment in CSK’s new innovation and application center in Wageningen is paying off and gave us the opportunity to innovate in the yogurt segment,”​ Meijer said.

“With the development of these high quality cultures we offer dairy manufacturers solutions that ensure process quality and consistency as well as a broadening range of new dairy experiences for consumers.”

CSK, which has clients in more than 50 countries worldwide, produces a variety of ingredients for dairy applications, from starter cultures for cheese and fresh fermented dairy to coatings, coagulants, lactic acid distillate, culture media, and colorants.
