Israeli start-up Yofix Probiotics Ltd., winner of Pepsico’s European Nutrition Greenhouse Programme 2018, has launched its first dairy-free, soy-free yogurt alternative line with three flavours. The products are made using a unique formula made from just a few natural ingredients and contain live probiotic cultures and prebiotic fibres through natural fermentation.
Yofix products are environmentally friendly and vegan, leaving a low carbon footprint and the production is designed to be zero waste.
Ronen Lavee, the agricultural mechanical engineer behind Yofix, experimented with more than hundred fermented formulas until he found the “Bio 5 formula.” It uses no added sugars, preservatives, or colours and contains no stabilisers.
“Yofix will be launched globally,” says Steve Grun, CEO of Yofix. “And, we will be developing new plant-based dairy substitutes for milk, yogurt drinks, cream cheese, coffee creamers and even ice cream. Our proprietary manufacturing technology and formulations are highly flexible and require minimum investment for versatility.”
