Improving creaminess in food products, whilst simultaneously decreasing fat, remains a challenge for food manufacturers worldwide. Yoghurts are inherently perceived as healthy food products and can be made even healthier by reducing fat. However, reducing fat in yoghurt without compromising desirable textural characteristics like creaminess is difficult to achieve. One approach is to add fat replacers such as modified starch, polysaccharide-based hydrocolloids or microparticulated proteins. Fat replacers or fat mimetics can improve texture but have the disadvantage of requiring labelling as ‘additives’. An alternative approach is to modify the textural attributes of yoghurt through processing. In this article, high quality low-fat natural yoghurts using industry standard formulations were produced using high dynamic pressure (microfluidisation) technology.
The definition of ‘creaminess’ can be used in reference to product appearance, flavour and/or texture. It is a meta-descriptor that is constantly evolving and transforms when used in context with different products and can vary between individuals. It has been defined as “possessing the textural property producing the sensation of the presence of a miscible, thick, smooth liquid in the oral cavity”1. Fat contributes to mouthfeel and flavour and fat particle size affects micro – structural, rheological, and ultimately, the sensory properties of a variety of milk products, including yoghurt.
