Yogurt is a widespread fermented dairy product that is enjoyed by individuals worldwide. Essentially, it is derived from the fermentation of milk induced by two primary bacteria known as Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus, which convert lactose, the sugar present in milk, into lactic acid. The process causes the milk proteins to thicken, resulting in a tangy, creamy product known as yogurt. However, the influence of other cultures, such as Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli, also contribute, often introducing additional health benefits and varying tastes. Despite its simple origins, the yogurt world has evolved into a remarkably diverse landscape, boasting many types that cater to various tastes and preferences. The market now offers various yogurt options, showcasing the versatility and innovation within this seemingly simple culinary delight. Traditional plain yogurt is unflavored and unsweetened, offering a tangy and creamy taste sensation. Flavored varieties are mixed with fruits, honey, or other sweeteners for added taste, while Greek yogurt is strained thoroughly to remove whey, resulting in a thicker texture with a higher protein content. The yogurt market is a dynamic and diverse segment of the global food industry, characterized by a wide array of product offerings that cater to consumers’ tastes, health, and dietary preferences across the globe. In recent years, the market has seen notable trends that reflect changing consumer preferences and societal shifts. Increasing consumption of yogurt owing to its associated health benefits, improved availability and supply chain of yogurt through online platforms, and significant demand for yogurt owing to the presence of flavored and lactose-free products are contributing to the expansion of the yogurt market. However, the market faces certain challenges, such as health risks associated with artificial additives and ingredients in yogurt and product recalls coupled with significant consumption of substitute products, hindering the growth of the yogurt market. On the other hand, the increasing development of organic and vegan yogurt and rising adoption attributed to convenient and innovative yogurt packaging formats presents a potential opportunity for the yogurt market to flourish in the coming years.
