Condiment formulation – Doing more with less

Greek yogurt squeezable dip and more

Cincinnati-based Vegy Vida manufactures refrigerated Greek yogurt-based squeezable condiments designed for young palates. Vegy Vida Kids’ Dip ‘n More comes in ranch, cheddar, bacon, zesty Southwest and cool Buffalo varieties. All offerings are sugar free.

As the name implies, Vegy Vida is more than a dip, as it may be used as an ingredient in vegetable-focused recipes ranging from pasta salad to baked sides. The products are formulated with cucumber extract, which works to soften the bitter flavors of vegetables, said co-founder and food scientist Josh Young, who said that children have three times more taste buds than adults. This results in an over sensitivity to bitter taste, often making them picky eaters.
