Cytosport, the Benicia, Calif.-based parent company of Muscle Milk and Muscle Milk Light, launched Muscle Milk Light Peach Mango in 14-ounce ready-to-drink bottles. Peach Mango is the first Muscle Milk Light beverage option to be naturally flavored and sweetened with stevia, monk fruit and cane sugar, the company says.
“We receive a lot of great feedback about our Muscle Milk Light beverages because they appeal to consumers who still want an amazing protein shake with fewer calories,” said CytoSport Chief Marketing Officer Nikki Brown in a statement. “We’re excited to provide a naturally flavored option for our consumers to incorporate into their post-workout recovery or daily snack routines.”
Muscle Milk Light Peach Mango contains 20 grams of premium protein and 7 grams of fiber and is lactose and gluten free. With only 190 calories and 4.5 grams of fat, the protein-enhanced beverage helps promote sustained energy, lean muscle growth and recovery from exercise, the company says. It also can serve as an on-the-go snack or meal replacement for health-conscious consumers who are trying to balance an active lifestyle, it adds.
