Yogurts, mainly due to their sensory and nutrient properties are bought very often by Polish consumers. In 2017, fruit yogurts with the addition of vegetables appeared on the market. The aim of this work was to verify the effect of the addition of vegetables to fruit yogurts on selected quality features of yogurts. The obtained results in the study allowed to state that this supplement increases the content of extract and fat content in yogurt, which has a beneficial effect on the nutritional value of yogurts.They also provide the basis for further research in the field of physicochemical and organoleptic assessment, which will be used to assess their quality and obtain information about consumer preferences.
