It is gluten-free, non-GMO and includes flavors such as Strawberry, Blueberry, Vanilla, Peach and Mixed Berry.
Milk is the starting point for yogurt, and sugar is naturally occurring in milk.
As people continue to look for ways to reduce sugar from their diets, we’ve been working hard to find a way to remove some of the naturally occurring sugar found in milk so that yogurt continues to be a preferred choice.Thierry St. Denis, Danone North America’s Senior Director of Research and Innovation
The company is capitalizing on the growing trend for plant-based options, with the dairy segment leading the line in innovations.
Danone has also unveiled the ‘Do Good By You’ campaign to be launched in the US this month via TV and online video, that it says inspires self-care every day.
Sugar is increasingly an area of interest for consumers, which is why our yogurt makers prioritized developing a recipe to address it head-on.Amanda Blechman, Registered Dietitian, and Senior Manager of Scientific Affairs at Danone North America.
Danone recently added two new flavors to its popular Dannon Activia Probiotic Dailies line, launched last year in the US.
