BROOMFIELD, Colo. — Soy milk brand Silk has added a coconut milk product that contains no dairy, no lactose and no cholesterol.
New Silk Pure Coconut, now available in grocery stores nationwide, joins Silk's lineup of soy milk products, which include original, vanilla and almond flavors. Silk Pure Coconut is calcium-fortified and is an excellent source of vitamins D and B12, so that those who are either lactose-intolerant or just prefer the taste of soy milk over traditional milk can get the nutrients they need, the company noted.
"Consumers continue to seek plant-based beverages. At the same time, they are becoming more interested in coconut-based products, so we brought those two trends together," said Craig Shiesley, the brand's VP. "Silk Pure Coconut gives consumers another plant-based option for milk that offers great taste combined with the calcium they're looking for."
