Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9843487A1] Yogurt, yogurt containing foods and beverages including yogurt drinks and frozen desserts including sorbets and ice cream can be fortified with calcium citrate malate without adversely affecting the taste. These products have a more bioavailable source of calcium. The calcium fortified yogurt product or frozen desert comprises an additional 3 % to 100 % RDA calcium per unit serving added as calcium citrate malate. The calcium citrate malate is added either directly to the product, or with a fruit, fruit juice or fruit puree, or to the sweetener component. Yogurt beverages are preferably made by forming a calcium citrate malate sweetener composition or fruit flavored beverage and then adding the yogurt to the concentrate to make the yogurt containing beverage.
