Morinaga Nutritional Foods, Inc. (MNF), Torrance, Calif., debuted a new line of drinkable low-fat Alove brand Aloe Vera Japanese-style yogurt in 7-fluid-ounce bottles.

MNF uses a proprietary process to remove the best pieces of Aloe Vera gel from premium Aloe Vera plant leaves, which are then mixed with a uniquely smooth and silky, Japanese-style low-fat yogurt in a drinkable format.

“Retailers were eager to have a drinkable Aloe Vera yogurt option after receiving a hugely positive reception from shoppers [from] our initial launch of Aloe Vera spoonable yogurt to the U.S., which has been popular in Japan since we first debuted there in 1994,” says Hiroyuki Imanishi, president and CEO. “This new low-fat yogurt is a great addition to the Alove line for those yogurt-lovers who prefer drinkables and enjoy its no-utensil convenience.”

Alove brand Aloe Vera yogurt is available in more than 450 stores, with distribution rapidly expanding from the west coast across the United States.
