siggi's launches plant-based line
siggi's, New York, launched its first ever plant-based recipe that contains three times the protein and 40% less sugar than leading yogurt alternatives.
The recipe contains 10 grams of protein and 8-9 grams of sugar per 5.3-ounce cup, is made with simple, recognizable ingredients and features a thick and creamy texture.
The siggi's plant-based product line is made with a proprietary blend of coconut, macadamia and pea protein, and comes in Vanilla Cinnamon, Mixed Berries, Raspberry and Mango.
"I am very excited to offer consumers a plant-based option of our popular products. Like our dairy products, our plant-based products are rich, creamy, lower in sugar and higher in protein than what's available on the market today. Nearly 15 years ago, we started a low-sugar, simple ingredient revolution with our signature skyr, and now continue to deliver on that commitment in plant-based as well," says Siggi Hilmarsson, founder and chairman.
"We are really excited to enter the plant-based segment and offer a truly unique product that delivers on what consumers have asked for," says Carlos Altschul, president and CEO. "siggi's fans all over the country will recognize our classic creamy texture, not-too-sweet taste, lower sugar and higher protein content. We are proud to continue to enhance the yogurt aisle through innovation."
