Parmalat Canada has launched the first and only probiotic yoghurt in Canada

Parmalat Canada has launched what it claims is the first and only probiotic yoghurt in Canada.

Astro BioBest Plant Sterols yoghurts are available in multipacks containing four flavours; strawberry, blueberry, vanilla and raspberry.

The yoghurts contain 50% of the daily amount of plant sterols recommended to help lower cholesterol, the firm said.

"Our goal at Parmalat Canada is to be able to provide consumers with a simple, everyday food that's easily incorporated into their diet with the added bonus of a functional ingredient that specifically lowers cholesterol, which is a significant factor in heart disease," Parmalat Canada president and CEO Nash Lakha said.
