VANCOUVER, British Columbia— Just in time for your New Year’s wellness resolutions, Daiya, leading maker of plant-based foods that are dairy, gluten and soy free, announced its newest dairy-free yogurt alternative cups. The newly reformulated, dairy-free yogurt alternative cups are made with coconut cream and contain 6 g of protein per serving. They are offered in six delicious varieties to provide better-for-you snacking options to keep you fueled and satisfied throughout the New Year. Plus, the fruit flavors tout 50 percent less sugar per serving than the average dairy-free brand. The new products are now available nationally at Sprouts, Natural Grocers, Fresh Thyme and other key retailers across the U.S.
According to a recent survey of 1,000 adults conducted by Daiya, 63 percent of respondents said they eat yogurt because they believe it promotes good health. The study also found 44 percent of adults are open to non-dairy yogurt alternatives.
“Consumers are making more mindful choices when it comes to food and we know that sugar reduction is a top priority for them,” said Michael Lynch, Interim CEO. “We found that the majority of fruit-based dairy-free yogurts had an average of 17 grams of sugar per serving. We wanted our reformulated line of yogurt alternatives to be a delicious tasting option for those looking to make an easy shift. Not only are Daiya’s new yogurt cups both delicious and allergy friendly, the fruit flavors offer just 9 grams of sugar per serving – sweetened from real fruit pieces and all-natural sugar cane.”
Blended with coconut cream and real fruit pieces, Daiya’s newest innovations are an excellent source of calcium, B12 and a good source of vitamin D, allowing consumers to enjoy their favorite snacks without the compromise. Given that nearly 70 percent of surveyed adults eat yogurt three times a week or more, swapping in low-sugar and high-protein yogurt alternatives is an easy way for people to incorporate better-for-you habits into the New Year. The new Daiya dairy-free yogurt alternative cups ($1.99 MSRP) are available in six tasty varieties including Strawberry, Peach, Blueberry, Black Cherry, Vanilla Bean and Plain. They can be enjoyed straight from the cup or easily incorporated into smoothies and tasty recipes like Blueberry Pancakes, Cucumber Salads and more.
“Our customers are just as passionate about food as we are at Daiya. We are always listening and working towards making the best tasting products on the market, and if that means reformulating our products to make them the best then that’s what we do. Plant based food is evolving and growing as more people embrace this lifestyle and we want them to know that Daiya is here to support them on this food journey.”
