Refrigerated beverages feature plant-based pea protein
Bolthouse Farms, Bakersfield, Calif., expanded its 1915 Organic line to include a new protein line of plant-forward beverages made with pea protein and two new cold-pressured juices. The full line of new and existing 1915 Organic beverages will also debut a more sustainable and environmental-friendly bottle that uses nearly 25% less plastic.
“More people are making better-for-you, sustainable food choices,” says Todd Putman, general manager of C-Fresh. “Our new 1915 Organic beverages were created in response to consumers’ growing demand for accessible, great-tasting, plant-based nutrition that balances protein and sugar.”
The new line of non-dairy 1915 Organic Protein drinks contain 12 grams of plant-based pea protein, 9 grams of sugar and has no more than 160 calories per bottle. Flavors include Vanilla, Chocolate and Coffee.
The new cold-pressured juices contain seven ingredients or less and come in Cucumber (made with leafy green vegetables and unique ingredients like ginger and moringa) and Watermelon (a blend of watermelon and lemon).
Available in March, the USDA-certified organic, vegan and non-GMO 1915 Organic beverages can be found in the refrigerated produce section at retailers such as Kroger, Key Foods and Meijer for a suggested retail price of $3.99 for a 12-ounce bottle.
