Morinaga Nutritional Foods, Inc., debuted three flavors of its aloe vera-based Japanese-style yogurt, ALOVE, at the Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco. After a successful US launch last summer, Morinaga, the creators of ALOVE yogurt, are adding Peach, Kiwi and Vanilla flavors. Current ALOVE aloe vera yogurt flavors include Original Aloe Vera, Strawberry and Blueberry.
Japan-based Morinaga introduced the yogurt to US customers last summer when it offered Japanese-style aloe vera yogurt. A popular fan favorite in Japan, Morinaga brought its aloe vera yogurt to the US. Aloe vera yogurt has been popular in Japan since Morinaga pioneered it there in 1994. The company uses a proprietary process to remove succulent pieces of aloe vera gel from the plant’s leaves where it is then mixed with its uniquely smooth and silky, Japanese-style yogurt. ALOVE is made with Grade A milk sourced from California and is also a good source of calcium and protein. It is also verified non-GMO, aloins not detected, has no artificial flavors, no high-fructose corn syrup and is certified gluten-free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO).
ALOVE aloe vera yogurt is currently available in more than 400 stores across the west coast and southwest of the US with distribution growing across the country.
