Lifeway Foods, meanwhile, is shaking up the dairy case with spoonable flavored kefir set to go head to head with ‘mix-in’ products from Fage and Chobani Flip; and farmer cheese (pressed cottage cheese – plain or blended with fruit) that will compete with Quark and blended yogurts, as well as new single-serve, 'snackable' cottage cheese brands such as good culture.
Both contain probiotic cultures and no carrageenan, guar gum, or soy lecithin, and use milk from grass-fed cows that are not treated with antibiotics or synthetic growth hormones. The products are cultured after pasteurization to ensure that the cultures are 100% live and active, adds the company.
