Horizon launches multi-serve organic protein milk
Horizon Organic is looking to elevate the milk consumers drink with new organic protein milk.
The Broomfield, Colo.-based brand has unveiled its new multi-serve organic protein milk line — Horizon Organic High Protein, which contains 12 g of organic protein per 8-oz. serving, the company said.
“We realized that protein is a top priority for people when it comes to milk — yet no organic protein milk option was available,” Christina Finkel, senior director of marketing at Horizon Organic, said. “Protein helps to fuel your day and supports healthy muscles, and our newest organic protein milk is meant to help meet that need for dairy drinkers.”
Available in three flavors — reduced fat chocolate, reduced fat plain and vitamin D — the launch is made from organic milk protein concentrate, which is made from high quality complete proteins naturally found in milk, the company said.
In addition, the milk also contains vitamin D, calcium, riboflavin, vitamin B12 and phosphorus.
“Less than 6% of all milk is USDA Certified Organic,” Finkel said. “We’re proud to be the first when it comes to a higher protein organic milk option. In addition to a higher level of protein, it tastes delicious, just like the rest of our organic milk portfolio. And we hope Horizon fans — old and new — enjoy our new protein milk, too.”
Horizon’s Organic High Protein milk is available at retailers nationwide in a 64-oz. carton that retails for $5.99.
Koia launches dessert-inspired Keto line
Koia, maker of plant-based protein drinks, is diving into the world of Keto.
The Los Angeles-based brand has announced the launch of its new Koia Keto line, created in collaboration with Whole Foods Market.
Available in three flavors — chocolate brownie, cake batter and caramel crème — the collection is made with such nutrient-dense ingredients as coconut milk and MCT oil, which provide sustained energy and deliver a ratio of 74% fat, 18% protein and 8% net carbs that accelerate ketosis.
“With consumers making healthy resolutions and incorporating new ways of eating into their New Year’s routines, we wanted to create something simple, convenient and full of flavor. We saw this as an opportunity to bring the keto community a single-serve, plant-powered protein option, as well as a new way to enjoy a sweet option that complies with their diet,” Chris Hunter, co-founder and CEO of Koia, said. “Whole Foods Market also recognizes that the keto community is quickly growing and the need for easy access to product that follow the trending dietary guidelines, which made Koia Keto a perfect fit.”
In addition, the brand’s products are vegan, Non-GMO Project verified, and free of dairy, soy and gluten.
Koia Keto can be found exclusively at Whole Foods Market and online for the suggested retail price of $4.99.
