Organic Herb Trading and Yeo Valley produce superfruit yogurt

UK-based supplier of organic herbs, spices and botanicals Organic Herb Trading is working with Yeo Valley to launch a new yogurt product.

In January 2018, organic dairy brand Yeo Valley will invite consumers to ‘Discover the Baobab inside’ when it launches its Artist’s Edition Baobab and Vanilla Yogurt, containing Baobab superfruit, sourced and supplied by Organic Herb Trading.

According to Organic Herb Trading, the Baobab fruit, which is native to Africa, is a 100% raw and organic superfruit with various health benefits linked to immune support, energy release, digestive health and skin anti-ageing.

The brand goes on to state that the superfruit is rich in antioxidants, vitamin C, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium and fibre.

The Baobab powder is known to have a high pectin content which creates a thick and creamy texture. As a result, it can be used as a functional ingredient in various food and drink applications such as: smoothies, juices, ice-creams, yogurts and sauces, nutrition bars, baked goods and cereals.

Tim Mead of Yeo Valley, says, “We’re delighted to bring Baobab yogurt to the UK, it’s such an exciting new ingredient which we hope our customers will love.

“Working with Organic Herb Trading allows Yeo Valley to source Baobab through their relationship with B’Ayoba.

“It’s a special partnership which makes sure that the rural communities which collect the fruit really benefit.”
