siggi’s, the lower sugar yogurt with simple ingredients, announced the launch of their first ever plant-based recipe arriving at grocery and retail stores this month. The product contains three times the protein and 40 percent less sugar than leading yogurt alternatives.*
The launch of siggi’s plant-based recipe comes after two years of development and fills key gaps consumers have desired from similar non-dairy products. The recipe contains 10 grams of protein, 8-9 grams of sugar per 5.3oz cup, is made with simple, recognizable ingredients and features a thick and creamy texture. Launch flavors include vanilla cinnamon, mixed berries, raspberry and mango.
The plant-based product line is made with a proprietary blend of coconut, macadamia and pea protein. True to siggi’s long-held commitment to lower sugar and simple ingredients, this innovation contains more protein than sugar in each cup and consumers will find a list of all-natural ingredients that can be easily pronounced.
“I am very excited to offer consumers a plant-based option of our popular products. Like our dairy products, our plant-based products are rich, creamy, lower in sugar and higher in protein than what’s available on the market today. Nearly 15 years ago, we started a low-sugar, simple ingredient revolution with our signature skyr and now continue to deliver on that commitment in plant-based as well,” said siggi’s founder and chairman Siggi Hilmarsson.
“We are really excited to enter the plant-based segment and offer a truly unique product that delivers on what consumers have asked for,” said siggi’s President and CEO Carlos Altschul. “siggi’s fans all over the country will recognize our classic creamy texture, not-too-sweet taste, lower sugar and higher protein content. We are proud to continue to enhance the yogurt aisle through innovation.”
*On average, siggi’s plant based flavored products have 1.6g sugar per oz., 1.9g protein per oz. compared to the leading flavored yogurt alternatives average of 2.9g sugar per oz., 0.6g protein per oz.
