Glucono delta lactone (GDL) Acidulants When the pH of the system needs to be controlled, Lactic Acid is our first choice, due to its compatibility with dairy systems and flavours.
Lactic Acid   Glucono delta lactone (GDL) can also be useful in lowering pH without contributing excessive tartness to the flavour of the final product.
Oleoresins Aromatics Hawkins Watts New Zealand has a full range of oleoresins from Lionel Hitchen Essential Oils including paprika, black pepper, ginger, celery, garlic and many more.
Please contact us for more information.
Maltodextrin Bulking Agents Maltodextrin from ADM can be added as a nutritive bulking agent, with reduced sweetness in the final product. The use of a small amount of maltodextrin can improve mouthfeel and “bulk”, without adding significantly to sweetness.
Polydextrose   Polydextrose from CJ is a bland bulking agent with virtually no sweetness, and reduced calorific content.
Natural Colours, Artificial Colours Colour Hawkins Watts New Zealand offers a full range of natural and artificial colours for yoghurt applications from Cathay Industries, DD Williamson and FMC BioPolymer.

Annatto is commonly used in yoghurt applications where a light yellow colour is required. Annatto is classified as a natural colourant, and is very cost effective.
Flavours Flavour Symrise has vast expertise in flavour requirements for fermented dairy products. Symrise are exceptionally strong in fruit flavours and vanilla flavours.

Please contact us for more information.
Gelatine Gums, hydrocolloids, thickeners, stabilisers Rousselot offers a range of high grade gelatines suitable for yoghurts. Gelatine is a unique stabiliser that gives good viscosity and mouthfeel, with the added benefit of “rehealing” when cut, and therefore with minimal syneresis.
Pectin   Herbstreith and Fox offers a range of pectins suitable for yoghurts, including H&F Amid CM020. This pectin provides good mouthfeel and viscosity, with minimal syneresis.
Propylene Glycol Alginate (PGA)   Protanal Ester SD 8440 from FMC BioPolymer can be used to replace starch and gelatine in low fat and sugar free yoghurt. Protanal Ester SD 8440 can be added to the milk before fermentation and will impart a creamier texture, improved sheen and eliminate syneresis.
Stabiliser blends   Palsgaard provides stabiliser blends with or without gelatine to improve body and mouthfeel, and prevent syneresis.
Calcium carbonate Minerals

Yoghurt offers an easy delivery system for minerals for health and well being.
Calcium carbonate and calcium citrate are commonly used to boost product calcium levels. Iron, magnesium and minc mineral addition are also areas of increased interest.

Calcium Carbonate from Kirsch Pharma is a fine powdered material suitable for inclusion in dairy systems.
Calcium citrate   Calcium Citrate from Jost Chemicals is a fine powdered material, with low levels of aluminium, suited to specialty mineral applications.

Hawkins Watts New Zealand has a wide range of minerals including the main mineral categories such as calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc and copper.

Plant sterols Nutraceuticals

Yoghurt systems offer a wonderful opportunity to deliver healthy ingredients.
Cardio-Aid Plant sterols from ADM are based on Soy sterols, and when absorbed by the body will help block the amount of cholesterol absorbed, ultimately lowering the blood cholesterol levels. ADM’s Cardio-Aid product allows technologists to formulate products without affecting taste or texture, while providing the necessary health benefits.
Dextrose Sweeteners Dextrose monohydrate is a powdered sweetener that can be used instead of sucrose, to increase solids without dramatically affecting sweetness.
Fructose   Cornsweet Fructose from ADM is a crystalline sweetener with 1.2 to 1.6 times the sweetness of sucrose.ADM Cornsweet Fructose also has a low glycaemic index and dissolves quickly.

Hawkins Watts New Zealand also has extensive expertise in the interactions between artificial flavours, and can provide alternative sweeteners for diet and low-calorie products.
Stevia   Stevia from Daepyung is a natural high-intensity sweetener and sugar substitute extracted from the Stevia plant with applications in low-sugar formulations.
Sweetness enhancer   SymLife® Sweet from Symrise is a flavouring which enhances sweetness, while allowing sucrose levels to be reduced by as much as 30%. SymLife® Sweet works well in combination with artificial sweeteners to help round out the aftertaste.
