Two new platforms are extending the dairy sector as Chobani recently introduced Chobani® Ultra-Filtered Milk, a lactose-free milk, and Chobani Half & Half to its portfolio. These new items are made from locally sourced milk and, like many of the company’s newest products, they come in paper-based packaging that is widely recyclable across the United States.
“With our lactose-free, reduced sugar, and protein-packed Chobani Ultra-Filtered Milk, we’re making dairy accessible to more people and giving consumers a great option to trade up to a more advanced, functional, and delicious product,” commented Peter McGuinness, President and Chief Operating Officer.
Chobani Ultra-Filtered Milk has half the sugar and 2.5 times more protein than traditional milk, noted the release, offering more functional benefits to dairy milk consumers. Ideal for cooking, baking, and blending, Chobani Ultra-Filtered Milk is a wholesome and convenient way to add more protein to recipes like pancakes, smoothies, homemade ice cream, and more.
Starting with locally sourced milk, Chobani Ultra-Filtered Milk is made using a special filtration process to help remove lactose and reduce sugar by half. It is rich and creamy in texture, an excellent source of calcium and vitamin D, and it provides all nine essential amino acids. Available in Reduced Fat 2%, Whole, Fat Free, and Chocolate, Chobani Ultra-Filtered Milk is on shelves this month.
Coupling with the lactose-free milk is Chobani Half & Half, a new product category for the company. Chobani continues to elevate the at-home coffee experience by offering classic Plain and Lactose-Free Half & Half options, both made simply from farm-fresh milk and cream.
“We’ve seen incredible consumer love for our coffee creamers, and they asked us to bring the same craft and quality to dairy-based half & half while offering a lactose-free option as well,” continued McGuinness.
Consumers can also feel good about the recyclability of the packaging for these new products.
