BROOMFIELD, Colo., March 5, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WhiteWave Foods, a leading consumer packaged food and beverage company in North America, today introduced Yulu™, a new Australian-style yogurt brand. Inspired by an authentic Australian recipe, Yulu Double Smoothed™ is made with fresh ingredients to create an extra creamy texture.
"Yulu yogurt is the ideal choice for yogurt fans who enjoy traditional or Greek varieties, but are looking for something new with a delicious taste, creamy texture and high protein," said Blaine McPeak, president of WhiteWave. "Yulu's authentic Aussie-style recipe starts with pure, honest ingredients and combines them with a process to create a creamier, Double Smooth™ alternative to Greek yogurt. And, because each cup offers more protein than traditional yogurt, Yulu is a great option for breakfast or a protein-filled snack."
Yulu Aussie-style yogurt is a full fat yogurt, made with real fruit and double-blended to create a creamy, smooth taste. Each 5.3-ounce cup of Yulu yogurt is packed with nine grams of protein. Yulu is currently available in five varieties, including:
- Vanilla Bean
The first Aussie-style yogurt from WhiteWave Foods, Yulu enters the growing yogurt category as a good solution for consumers who want a delicious and nutritious yogurt without the tangy, tart taste often associated with high-protein yogurts.
Available in grocery stores, supercenters and natural food stores nationwide, Yulu yogurt can be found near similar products in the dairy aisles. More information and a store locator tool are available at www.yuluyogurt.com.
