Fortifying yoghurt or dairy products with fibres and probiotic bacteria is an increasing interest to create functional foods with health benefits and improve their functionality. In this study milk fermented with acacia exudate gum and black carrot (Daucus carota L. ssp. sativus var. atrorubens alef) pulp components had a significantly shorter fermentation time than the others in milk fermented with Streptococcus thermophilus, Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus, Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. foals. Potential prebiotic addition increased the cohesiveness, index of viscosity and decreased the index of syneresis in synbiotic yoghurt samples. Sensory evaluation showed that incorporation of functional components increased satisfactory texture, and had sensory characteristics with high scores during cold storage.
