Danone Canada unveils Greek-style pea protein yogurt

Danone Canada has launched a new plant-based yogurt made with Canadian pea protein in two flavour varieties. The yogurts contain 12g of protein per serving and provide consumers with a Greek-style thick texture. Available in key lime and vanilla varieties, the new Silk yogurts are said to deliver on taste, consistency and nutrition. Pierre Morin, VP of research and innovation at Danone Canada, said: “The new Silk protein plant-based yogurt range provides Canadians with a versatile offering that meets ever-changing dietary needs and preferences, while also providing them enhanced locality from the Silk brand.” He continued: “We know from our research that not only are Canadians looking for products that help them achieve their daily protein intake goals, they’re also looking to purchase products sourced and produced in Canada. With this launch, we are proud to announce our use of Canadian pea protein to create a great tasting, high in protein product that supports local sourcing and production”. With the new launch, Danone Canada says it has committed to bringing the majority of its Silk yogurt production to its local manufacturing plant in Boucherville, Quebec, helping to meet the needs of Canadian consumers who search for products made locally. Silk has also introduced an improved recipe and new flavours and sizes for its current range of coconut plant-based yogurts. The now more neutral-tasting recipe is also a source of calcium, vitamin D and vitamin B12. Silk Active Health Category’s probiotic plant-based yogurt has also been revamped and is now available in a bigger 625g format and two new flavours – blueberry and cherry. The new pea protein Greek-style yogurts are available to purchase now in retailers across Canada. You may also like to read:
