The demand for dairy products globally is increasing. No exception for yogurt. As a quick and healthy drink, yogurt’s consumers demand lower fat content for health reasons. yogurt loss its original texture and viscosity if the fat content is lower than normal. To resolve the issue, fat replacers are added to the low-fat yogurt. In this study we used enzymatically modified potato starch as the fat replacer. The results showed that the characteristic of low-fat yogurt with the addition of modified starch with amylosubtilin and amylase from Bacillus licheniformis are quite similar to native starch.
