<quoted text> i should also add that yo-cream is less icy, and more creamy -- sort of more like pinkberry's style, rather than yogurt-land's. i prefer the creamy style of frozen yogurt personally. supposedly it's still nonfat.
A Yogurtland just opened by my house. I looked at their supplier; it was YoCream.

i asked them if it is all natural and they did not confirm, so just be careful if you are advertising that it is natural

I'm a newbie to this business, so I was searching for the same stuff and found this company in LA area called Well Spring ( http://www.wellsprinc.com ). I went and tried plain tart and dozen other non-fat frozen yogurt flavors from this company and they were simply the best. Well Spring also sells equipments are almost half the price and their powder price is cheaper than anyone else. Go and try it yourself to believe it! Try sample their "Green Apple and Mango flavors!! Enjoy!

This is not true. Yogurtland uses YoCream and Pinkberry makes their own frozen yogurt. Both have locations in So. Cal.

I don't think Carbawhey is actually frozen yogurt, but rather soft serve ice cream. I tried YoCream at a Yogurtland and it was absolutely horrible; very water based. Pinkberry makes their own yogurt; I am not sure about ceFiore. I suggest Cielo USA ( http://cielousa.com ). I just tried some of their yogurt the other day and I was unbelievably creamy.

As for machines, I would agree that Taylor is the best. At a high price, though. I haven't checked out the second one you mentioned, so I couldn't give you any advice about that.

I am looking to open a "natural" yogurt shop in my small town. It's kind of a "throw-back" hippie town, where the local Organic co-op market does a phenomenal business! I have no idea how to start, where to buy machines, products, etc. Any help?
Thanks so much!

I would love to open a yogurt store but am not sure whether to open a franchise or open my own private yogurt place. Any comments? Also, would love to know where to find the best price for leasing the equipment as well as the best place to buy the product. Thank you.

First, the next froyo craze is on the way (remember tcby's??) We all know what happened to that phase.

Anyhow, before any of you Pink/Mango/Kiwi berry wannabe's get into the business, contact me at [email protected] I'll give you free advice and no, I'm not selling at fro yo powder.

It makes me cringe when I read a board like this with a bunch of dreamers that wanna end up on the American Express Pink card commercial. Give me a break. Hint number one, what if some of your Ice Cream competitors decided to add this crapola at their locations, then what?

Hit me up for some free advice and consultation. Use your noggin and don't make a 10 year mistake ( why ten years??? that's how long the leases are)

As a distributor to the frozen yogurt industry I would like to clarify that there is no such thing as a "powdered yogurt". Yogurt must contain a certain level of live bacteria in order to be classified as yogurt, especially in the state of California. Many shops are operating illegally by making false claims. Feel free to visit our website at www.reliantfoods.com for more information.

Thanks for all the great information. I've been searching the net for awhile now to find reliable sources for powdered yogurt mix and it looks like I've found some on here. I've emailed some people and placed an order for a sample at Cielo USA so we'll see how their mix tastes. I've recently heard that their mix is one of the best tasting so I'm hopeful thus far.

And as for the previous post from Reliant Food Service, I believe that you are somewhat mistaken. While it is true that many yogurt shops in California are switching over to liquid due to more meticulous policies, it is a bit of a stretch to say that "there is no such thing as a powdered yogurt."

FYI, there IS such thing because I've used them for my own shop and it is definitely not "illegal" in my state to do so. I just wanted to clarify so you don't intentionally mislead people to believe that there is no such thing just because California just implemented a new law. There are plenty of people out there who are seeking resources to expand their business and it is unethical for you to make false claims just because of a revision in a single state. I've used powered mix with real non-fat yogurt that contains live cultures so I'm not exactly sure what you're saying..

That is not completely true. I know of companies that sell a powder yogurt base. Of course, you must add actual yogurt and water when reconstituting it, hence giving the fro yo the live cultures.

Hi Tommy, then essentially what you are describing is not a "powdered yogurt."
My Apologies, Jennix. I should have elaborated.
My intent is not to mislead but to educate, and possibly prevent a substatial loss in a lawsuit such as one of the main retailers in the market.
We receive many requests for a frozen yogurt powder which you simply add water and put in a softserve machine.
We have been in the Frozen Yogurt industry for 20+ years and have been introduced to many "misleading" products. You are correct, most of this information pertains to the state of California. Many consumers are being mislead into thinking some of the products being promoted have the beneficial attributes of yogurt which contain the live active cultures (i.e. Lactobacillus Bulgaricus and Streptococcus Thermaphilus.) These active cultures are living organisms and have a shelf life and must be stored/handled accordingly. There are currently powdered mixes on the market that might contain yogurt cultures, but if/when any LIVE cultures are introduced, they are killed off during the manufacturing process. If any active yogurt cultures are added prior to pouring in a softserve
machine, that is different. Although, in accordance with California state law, in commercial applications, if any ingredients such as a powder mix are added to a pre-mixed softserve frozen yogurt mix, the product must then be re-pasteurized prior to mixing in a machine.

As the Carbawhey distributor, Carbawhey is acutally a low carb soft serve "dessert" it isn't an ice cream or yogurt. Ice Cream must contain a certain % Butterfat in order to be classified as such. Yo Cream is actually an excellent product if fresh and served properly. There are many factors that can affect the finished quality of soft serve products. If you experienced this product as "watery" then the soft serve equipment was not properly calibrated or the operator actually "watered" down the product either with water or milk. Because this industry is becoming more and more competitive, unfortunately the latter seems to be an increasing cause of substandard product.

To clarify:
If any LIVE yogurt cultures WERE added to the powder mix during the blending process, they were killed off in the manufacturing/packaging and storing process.
