Organic superfood producer Z Natural Foods has released a new dairy-free Cashew Milk Powder as a ‘healthy and natural’ alternative to traditional milk products.
Suitable for vegetarian, vegan and lactose-free lifestyles, Cashew Milk Powder is a source of magnesium and copper, which are rare in the standard diet according to Z Natural Foods. By using cashew nuts, the product has a much lower fat content but still contains oleic acid, the same heart-healthy fat found in olive oil.
Unlike most cashew milks that use unhealthy oils, sugar, and preservatives, Z Natural Foods’ product contains only two ingredients: cashew and inulin. As well as acting as a prebiotic fibre which helps the gut, the inulin prevents the powder from forming clumps.
Sam Hirschberg, MBA and director of marketing for Z Natural Foods said: “Because our Cashew Milk Powder provides so much nutrition, we believe it’s the best alternative to traditional milk in the food industry.
“And customers tell us they are addicted to the wonderful cashew flavour.”
The US-based company claims its new cashew milk powder is ideal for smoothies, cereal, cooking or mild and creamy beverage while providing the consumer with calcium, omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids and several vitamins.
The new product is packaged in an air-locked, freezer-tight, resealable, stand up foil pouch meaning it can be safely stored for two years.
Cashew Milk Powder is available for an RRP of $19.99 per pouch.
