This report examines the U.S. market for cultured dairy products, of which there are three primary categories. It is important to note that in this report, dairy refers to cows milk. Cultured soy products are not included.

In this report, unless noted, the descriptor “cultured” is a general term used to describe various categories of dairy products. It does not imply that the products are made with bacterial cultures. Indeed, many cultured dairy products are made with bacterial cultures, often times very specific strains. Such products can be legally labeled as “cultured.” However, some cultured dairy products are made using food-grade acids. These products are legally labeled as “acidified.”

The focus of this report is on sales of branded packaged products sold through supermarkets, drug stores, and mass merchandisers. The report also includes qualitative and quantitative information on branded packaged products marketed through other retail outlets such as convenience stores (c-stores) and club stores. Lastly, the report does provide limited qualitative and quantitative information on cultured dairy products sold to consumers, either packaged or unpackaged, through the many foodservice channels including restaurants, fastfood outlets, coffee shops, vending machines, kiosks, and institutions such as hospitals, nursing homes, and schools.
