Expanding natural bliss portfolio beyond creamer aisle to introduce first-ever ready-to-drink Oat Milk
Swiss multinational food and beverage company Nestlé has unveiled its latest innovation for its plant-based products: a milk alternative that combines a unique blend of oat and fava, with a strong nutritional value.
By combining oat and fava, the plant-based milk alternative has 5g of protein per serving, and all the amino acids needed in the diet to ensure high-quality protein.
Christoph Bolten, Head of the Nestlé Institute of Food Sciences said: “Fava beans are a great source of protein, which is why we are exploring their use in different types of plant-based alternatives. While developing the product, we selected the fava bean variety, that would bring the most complete nutritional elements to the recipe.”
Nestlé offers a wide range of plant-based products made from ingredients such as peas, rice, oat, soy, coconut, and almonds. Nestlé’s R&D experts are also exploring the next generation of plant-based ingredients including fava while considering different functional, nutritional, and sustainability aspects.
The oat and fava plant-based beverages will launch nationally in grocery stores and mass retailers in the US under the natural bliss brand. They will come in two varieties – natural bliss Oat Milk Original and Unsweetened.
