Danone North America has added to its So Delicious Dairy Free portfolio in the US with a new line of Oatmilk Yogurt Alternatives.
Created using gluten-free oats, along with live and active cultures, the range is available in four flavours: triple berry, spiced pear and fig, strawberry rhubarb, and sweet mango.
Each variant is dairy-free, nut-free, soy-free, certified vegan, certified gluten-free and Non-GMO Project verified.
“We couldn’t be more excited to expand our portfolio and bring Oatmilk Yogurt Alternatives to consumers from coast to coast,” said Joshua Cook, brand manager of plant-based yogurt for So Delicious Dairy Free.
“Oat milk’s creamy texture is the perfect base for a yogurt alternative, and each of our artisanal flavours have been thoughtfully chosen to excite taste buds. The new Oatmilk Yogurt Alternatives are perfect for a morning breakfast, an on-the-go snack or as an ingredient in other delicious dairy-free delights.”
Now available at Whole Foods stores in the US, So Delicious Oatmilk Yogurt Alternatives retail for a suggested price of $1.89 per 5.3oz cup.
The new offerings join the current So Delicious yogurt alternatives made from coconut milk.
The So Delicious Dairy Free portfolio consists of a range of dairy-free creamers, yogurts, frozen desserts and beverages. Earlier this year, a line of Oatmilk Frozen Desserts was launched.
So Delicious Dairy Free was acquired by Danone in 2016 as part of its $12.5 billion takeover of WhiteWave Foods. It was previously bought by WhiteWave for $195 million in 2014.
Last year, Danone revealed plans to triple the size of its plant-based business by 2025 by combining its position in the dairy industry with the high plant-based growth potential.
