Dannon® Foodservice has announced the launch of a new bulk yogurt back-of-house solution: Dannon® Pro Nonfat Yogurt in vanilla and strawberry flavors and Dannon® Oikos® Pro Greek Nonfat Yogurt in plain and vanilla flavors.
Designed to help operators optimize back-of-house operations, Dannon® Pro Nonfat Yogurt and Dannon® Oikos® Pro Greek Nonfat Yogurt come in 6-pound bags with ane asy-pour resealable cap to help prevent spillage and minimize cross-contamination. This new easy-to-use format delivers superior efficiency, optional yield and improved packaging sustainability. With a delicious flavor and a rich and creamy texture, Dannon offers an easier way to bring the booming yogurt trend to your operation from a brand you know and trust.
Yogurt continues to become more prevalent in restaurant kitchens and can be found in a variety of sweet and savory dishes. From perfect parfaits to signature spreads, dressings, marinades and more, yogurt can be used to help reduce fat and calories without losing flavor or texture. Many chefs are replacing ingredients like regular sour cream, cream cheese and mayonnaise with traditional plain Greek yogurt to reduce fat by 80%. And by replacing oil and butter with creamy nonfat yogurt, you can help improve decadent desserts.
“Yogurt is a great versatile ingredient to have on hand,” says Michael Symon, a James Beard Award–winning chef, restaurateur, television personality and author, in addition to being a Dannon® Oikos® spokesperson. “I’ve been cooking with Greek yogurt for years and I grew up with it. I use it in everything from classic Greek dips to flavorful marinades and dressings. Greek yogurt has a rich mouthfeel, but it also brings a tartness and acidity to a dish for a more complex flavor. One of my favorite dishes is roasted lamb with mint and cucumber yogurt, but it really can be paired with just about anything.”
With up to 22 grams of protein per 8-ounce serving, Dannon® Oikos® Pro Greek Nonfat Plain Yogurt contains one ingredient—cultured milk. According to a recent study, consumers expect Greek yogurt to become more common in ice cream, dips, salad dressings and ready-to-drink smoothies. Operators can amp up the flavors of sushi and grilled meats by creating a zesty Asian-inspired dip made with Dannon® Oikos® Pro Greek Nonfat Plain Yogurt, lowfat mayonnaise, green onions, wasabi paste, ginger, garlic and soy sauce. Whether showcased in appetizers, entrées or desserts, Dannon® Oikos® Pro Greek Nonfat Plain Yogurt can complement just about any flavor combination and cuisine.
After years of developing ways to benefit the foodservice industry, Dannon® is delighted to offer an innovative new package design to help operators manage costs and optimize back-of-house efficiencies. The resealable bag provides 99% yield and has an easy-pour cap to help prevent spillage while minimizing cross-contamination. Plus, the flexible, simple-to-use pouch is made with 61.5% less plastic than quarts to reduce waste. Available in 6-lb. durable plastic bags, Dannon® Pro Nonfat Yogurt comes with 4 bags per case, while Dannon® Oikos® Pro Greek Nonfat Yogurt comes 2 bags per case. Both blended and Greek varieties contain live and active cultures and are certified gluten-free and kosher.
