Woolworths pulls yoghurt with gelatine off shelves

Woolworths will take the majority of its yoghurt products off the shelves because a supplier had included gelatine as an ingredient, the company said on Thursday.

Julian Novak, head of food, said Woolworths had an explicit agreement with its yoghurt suppliers not to include gelatine in their products.

This agreement was made after feedback from customers who did not want gelatine in their yoghurt.

He stressed that the yoghurt was perfectly safe and very nutritious and would be donated to a local charity.

Woolworths was seeking a new supplier and said it hoped to have gelatine-free yoghurt back in stock in the near future.

Gelatine is a translucent, colourless, brittle, nearly tasteless solid substance, extracted from the collagen inside animals’ connective tissue, according to Wikipedia. – Sapa
