Los Angeles-based Koia announced the launch of its new Koia Keto 100 percent plant-based protein beverage line, in collaboration with Austin-based Whole Foods Market. The dessert-inspired line offers consumers a convenient indulgence to complement their ketogenic diets, the company says.
Available in Chocolate Brownie, Cake Batter, and Caramel Crème, Koia Keto is made with nutrient-dense ingredients such as coconut milk and MCT oil to provide sustained energy and deliver the desired ketosis ratio of 74 percent fat, 18 percent protein and 8 percent net carbs that help accelerate the process, it says.
Each flavor of Koia Keto contains 12 grams of protein and no added sugar.
“With consumers making healthy resolutions and incorporating new ways of eating into their New Year’s routines, we wanted to create something simple, convenient and full of flavor,” said Chris Hunter, co-found and chief executive officer of Koia, in a statement. We saw this as an opportunity to bring the keto community as a single-serve, plant-powered protein option, as well as a new way to enjoy a sweet option that complies with their diet. Whole Foods Market also recognizes that the keto community is quickly growing and the need for easy access to product that follow the trending dietary guidelines, which made Koia Keto the perfect fit.”
Koia Keto now is available exclusively at Whole Foods Market and at DrinkKoia.com for a suggested retail price of $4.99. All of Koia’s varieties are vegan, Non-GMO Project verified, and free of dairy, soy and gluten.
