For this a thickening agent was used as a processing aid and yogurt to which a specific flavor with or without sugar was added. To evaluate the most suitable packaging, two types of materials with gas barrier and water steam were tested: a transparent (polyethylene) one and a light barrier (complex laminate) one. The packaged snacks were kept for two months at room temperature and sensory analyzed by a trained panel (descriptive analysis) and by the consumers.
