Wakaberry rolls out new and improved recipe

Wakaberry, the market leader in self-serve soft serve frozen yoghurt, has announced the introduction of a new and improved yoghurt recipe. The new recipe will be available in all stores from 1 May.

“We have always prided ourselves on our 100% real yoghurt,” says Michele Fourie, Wakaberry’s co-founder and Managing Executive. “We are pleased to introduce a new recipe which will take our usual offering of real yoghurt to the next level. The new yoghurt is even lower in fat and carbohydrates and higher in calcium and protein, making it the perfect alternative to other frozen desserts when compared to foods high in fat and sugar. And, of course, it’s delicious.”

The national standard for frozen yoghurt is fairly vague and therefore there are many ways in which local froyo brands are making and marketing their products. The essential difference between real yoghurt, and the products that are made with a dehydrated yoghurt base, is that real yoghurt undergoes a natural fermentation process. In the production of genuine yoghurt, real, low fatmilk is used and traditionally fermented with two live cultures: Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilis. This fermentation process produces lactic acid bacteria (which gives real yoghurt its tart taste) and high levels of live and active cultures.

Says Fourie: “Wakaberry is virtually fat free, contains natural live and active cultures (up to 10 million per gram of yoghurt), is high in calcium and is made from locally sourced dairies. As one of the only froyo brands offering real yoghurt made the natural way, we continue to provide our Wakafans with only the freshest, authentic yoghurt.”

Wakafans are encouraged to do their own taste test and share their opinions on the new recipe at www.wakaberry.co.za. One lucky fan could win a REAL experience weekend worth R10 000.
