Danone's Silhouette yogurt line takes innovative turn in new weight management 
Goodbye self-deprivation, hello pure enjoyment! 
MONTREAL, Jan. 22, 2013 /CNW/ - More and more, women have started to question 
diet gimmicks and the need to deprive themselves of certain foods. Instead, 
women have become increasingly receptive to messages about health and, above 
all, the pleasure of eating. In this time of changing attitudes towards weight 
management, Danone is proud to announce its newly redesigned Silhouette 
product line, including a new flagship product, Silhouette Greek yogurt - with 
no added sugar and twice the protein((1)), it has only 50 calories per 100 g 
serving. With its recent revamp, the Silhouette yogurt line is now gelatine 
free, with no artificial flavours or colors. 
A new wave in weight management 
Women are now looking at weight management from a more constructive and 
permissive view. While many of them are still not satisfied with their weight, 
they want to shift the focus away from losing weight, at all costs, in favour 
of striking a balance between eating right and eating enjoyably. These savvy 
women are looking for more natural, nutrient-dense products with fewer empty 
calories. They are becoming more aware of the key role that protein plays in 
satiety, weight management and muscle recovery. This is particularly important 
when it comes to finding nutritious foods for snack-time or after 
The new Silhouette Greek yogurt: compatible with the needs of women 
The new Silhouette Greek yogurt is distinct from other yogurts on the market 
because it contains no added sugar while still offering all the 
characteristics of a high-protein Greek yogurt. As Danone Marketing Director 
Catherine Fortier points out, "Silhouette Greek has an enviable nutritional 
profile with 50 calories per serving and half of those calories coming from 
protein." It comes as no surprise that nearly 90% of the women who tested the 
product enjoyed it and recognized that Danone's Silhouette Greek would help 
them maintain a healthy weight.((4)) The stirred Silhouette Greek yogurt has a 
rich and creamy texture, and comes in five delicious flavours: Vanilla Twist, 
Strawberry Kiss, Refreshing Apple, Tropical Delight and Berry-licious. 
Consumers can now nourish both body and soul with a healthy product that is 
deliciously thick, creamy and sure to satisfy. 
The new face of Silhouette 
Inspired by women across Canada, Danone's completely redesigned Silhouette 
yogurt line meets female consumers' expectations and needs better than ever 
before. The redesigned Silhouette yogurt line still has no fat or added 
sugar—but now contains no aspartame, gelatin, or artificial colours or 
flavours. It boasts a creamy texture, offering the perfect blend of pleasure 
and healthfulness. "With this reinvented line, Danone is ready to join women 
consumers in this new wave, which represents a profound shift in our society's 
attitudes towards weight management. The new line has a fresh new packaging 
and will be available in grocery stores across Canada starting on January 28, 
2013", concludes Catherine Fortier.
