While health and nutrition is top of mind for dairy consumers nowadays, taste remains the key driver. When it comes to boosting creaminess and texture in yoghurts, increasing fat and protein levels are commonly used.

With ETENIA™ QS, the latest extension of AVEBE’s innovative E-number-free ETENIA™-range, it is now possible to produce cost-optimized yoghurts with remarkable creamy texture, as well as shiny and smooth appearance!

ETENIA™ QS is the clean label solution for dairy products that offers a clean taste profile, and is Kosher and Halal certified. ETENIA™ QS has been designed to fit existing processes and meets shelf-life requirements for yoghurts. ETENIA™ QS is stable at low-pH and resists shear and heat.

Avebe has added extra applications for its Etenia™ potato starch range, this time to enable lower levels of fat in cream cheese and ice-cream.

Etenia™  is said to have applications both in terms of fat replacement but also for hydrocolloid (guar gum, locust bean) substitutes in cream cheese and ice-cream.

“We are getting close to 0% fat reduction levels for cream cheese with Etenia,” explained Cindy Semeijn AVEBE’s Market Manager.  She added that hydrocolloid replacement with Etenia starches ensures dairy brand owners can appeal to increasing clean label demands, as they don’t have to add E-Numbers to the ingredients list.

In the EU Etenia™ can be labelled simply as ‘starch’.
