US-based dairy producer Muuna has added three new flavours to its high-protein cottage cheese range.
The new black cherry, vanilla and raspberry flavours join the brand’s existing range of pineapple, peach, blueberry, strawberry and mango single-serve cottage cheese pots.
Munna’s range of cottage cheeses have been developed to target the growing number of time-poor consumers who would like a convenient, high-protein snack in place of a traditional meal.
Each pot contains between 15g to 19g of protein, 9g of sugar and 120-130 calories per 5.3-ounce cup. Every pot also contains real pieces of fruit.
Gerard Meyer, Muuna’s CEO said: “Backed by extensive research, including a deep-dive into consumer flavour demand in the yoghurt category, our in-house R&D team created these new flavours.
“The debut of black cherry and vanilla mark a first in the cottage cheese category, as consumers previously have only seen these flavours available in yogurt.
“Cottage cheese continues to gain popularity as it’s listed among 2018’s top food trends; plus, the on-the-go portability of our single-serve cups meets consumer demand for delicious, nutritious snack foods.”
Muuna’s product range is currently available in over 4,000 retailers throughout the mid-Atlantic and northeast of the US, and the brand has announced it will be looking to expand into further regions in the future.
