BROOMFIELD, COLO. — Danone SA is introducing Silk Greek Style Coconutmilk Yogurt Alternatives, the result of a multiyear effort to deliver the signature traits of Greek yogurt without the dairy, Danone said.
Certified vegan and Non-GMO Project verified, Silk Greek is formulated with live and active cultures, vitamin D2 and pea protein. The yogurt alternatives feature a thick coconut milk base and contain 190 to 200 calories, 10 grams of protein, 9 to 12 grams of sugar and 11 grams of fat per serving. Flavors include vanilla, strawberry, lemon and blueberry.
“Seventy percent of plant-based beverage buyers are not yet buying plant-based yogurt alternatives,” said Lia Stierwalt, senior director of marketing for Silk plant-based yogurt alternatives. “We saw an incredible opportunity to appeal to those who are already familiar with a plant-based lifestyle, as well as those who love Greek style yogurt. Silk is already a plant-based yogurt aisle favorite, and now we are tackling the elusive Greek Style category head-on. As part of our product innovation process, we tested Silk Greek with many consumers. We are confident that we're delivering a fantastic tasting, high-protein, plant-based yogurt alternative.”
Silk Greek Style Coconutmilk Yogurt Alternatives are available nationwide for a suggested retail price of $1.99 per 5.3-oz cup.
