In the Kitchen with Culinary Expert Padma Lakshmi

Padma Lakshmi, the Indian-American Author, TV Host, Producer, and Culinary Expert brings her culinary expertise to the India-Inspired, slow-cultured, award–winning functional yogurt line DAH! yogurt.

Award-winning, probiotic-rich functional yogurt brand DAH!, maker of premium, slow-cultured dairy and plant-based yogurts that merge the time-tested, ancient wisdom of India’s culinary traditions with the precision of modern methods and technologies, recently announced the partnership with Lakshmi. Lakshmi officially joined the company originally founded by JD Sethi and Ajeet Burns, as a board advisor and brand partner. In her new position with DAH!, Lakshmi is working hand-in-hand with the executive team and board of directors to advise on the overall direction of the company, brand equity and innovation strategy, as well as lend her expertise to the research and development department to help craft and test new products and flavors.

DAH!’s Lassi (yogurt smoothie) is uniquely special because it has more probiotics and less sugar than comparable drinkable yogurts. I’m excited to be able to share this with the American public because it may be something new for them, and it is a product I truly enjoy. The entire probiotic-rich line features flavorful yogurts authentic to the culinary style of India. DAH! can play a vital role in gut health, nutrition, in getting enough protein, and in being a great addition to our diet – and it is just plain delicious.”
