Broomfield, Colorado-based Silk has added a new plant-based beverage called Silk Nextmilk. This offering is formulated to meet dairy-lovers’ taste expectations through a blend of plants designed to deliver on key attributes of dairy milk, like taste and texture.
Silk Nextmilk is a source of six key nutrients found in dairy, including calcium, vitamin D, vitamin A, B12, riboflavin and phosphorus. The beverage also delivers 4 grams of plant-based protein per serving.
Silk Nextmilk is lactose-free, Non-GMO Project Verified and has 30 percent fewer calories than dairy milk.
“Some consumers remain skeptical about plant-based food and beverages due to taste and texture, but Silk Nextmilk is on a mission to change that. We deconstructed dairy to create this revolutionary product that delivers the taste and texture we think dairy drinkers will love,” said John Starkey, president of plant-based food and beverages for Danone North America.
“Thanks to Silk Nextmilk – a true category game changer – we’re confident dairy lovers will want to cross the aisle,” he said.
Danone North America’s research and innovation team deconstructed the classic dairy drinking experience – including key nutritional factors, molecular composition and iconic sensory elements – and reconstructed it with plants that mirrored the different components of dairy’s flavor curve and mouthfeel, in partnership with its own dairy experts.
Through this research, the team developed the recipe for Silk Nextmilk, designed to closely mimic dairy attributes and incorporate the perfect blend of plant-based ingredients to make a truly versatile beverage.
Silk Nextmilk is available in Whole Fat and Reduced Fat varieties in multiserve cartons in the refrigerated section at grocery stores nationwide, including Target, Kroger, Publix, H-E-B and more.
