Yoghurt is a widely consumed functional food due to its good taste and nutritional properties. According to FAO/WHO (2003) standards, yoghurt is ‘the coagulated milk product obtained by lactic acid fermentation through the action of Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus and Streptococcus salivarius subsp. thermophilus’ (Krasaekoopt et al., 2005). Herbal infusions like Aloe barbadensis collected from campus of Veterinary College and Research Institute, Namakkal. Anethum graveolens purchased from local markets of Kolar district, Karnataka. Costus igneus and Hibiscus Sabdariffa collected from Horticulture College, GKVK campus, Bangalore were employed in the study. On texture profile analysis significant (P˂0.05) increase in hardness, gumminess, chewiness was observed during entire storage period of 21 days in all the yoghurt, whereas the springiness and cohesiveness were found increased up to 14th day and then a gradual decrease on 21st day. A significant reduction in adhesiveness was observed during storage period. A reduction in hardness, gumminess and chewiness on zero day was noticed due to the addition of herbal extracts and a non significance (p>0.05) reduction was observed on storage period.
