Dallas-based Mooala introduced Keto Mylk. The company, best known for its plant-based Bananamilk, expanded its organic beverage portfolio to include the new, keto-certified and carb-conscious option, which features less than 1 gram of net carbs, zero grams of sugar and 5 grams of MCTs in each serving, it says.
Keto Mylk is available in refrigerated and shelf-stable varieties in four flavors: Cinnamon Roll, Chocolaty Chip, Vanilla Crème and Original. Made with a base of organic coconut cream, new beverages are USDA organic, non-GMO and plant-based.
With 0 grams of sugar and less than 1 gram of net carbs in each serving, Keto Mylk's appeal expands beyond keto dieters to the broad, ever-growing base carb-conscious consumers. Frequently, dairy-based milks and even dairy alternatives contain significant carbohydrates and sugar, and thus conflict with many individuals' lifestyle goals.
"Each morning, Mooala lovers can now wake up, pour Keto Mylk in a glass and jump-start their day with dynamic, energy-driving MCTs in an almost zero-carb beverage made from delicious, organic ingredients," said Mooala Founder and Chief Executive Officer Jeff Richards in a statement. "Since the product's high-quality fats are derived from coconuts, our customers can feel really great about meeting their desired goals while also boosting their plant-based diets with a really satisfying beverage."
Keto Mylk is available for purchase in shelf-stable, 33.8-ounce cartons at shop.mooala.com and refrigerated, 48-ounce multi-serve bottles at Sprouts stores nationwide. Keto Mylk also will be sold in approximately 1,000 major retail stores across the United States in the first quarter of 2021, including Wegmans, Whole Foods, Safeway-Albertsons and more.
Mooala's introduction of keto-focused milk alternative is a welcome innovation for keto consumers who find it difficult to follow a plant-based diet. "The plant-based keto market is significantly underserved, and Mooala is filling a gap that has long existed," said Karen Pendergrass, chief executive officer of the Keto Certified Foundation.
To give Keto Mylk its rich flavor, Mooala uses a blend of organic coconut cream and organic MCT oil derived from coconuts, the company says. Each serving contains no added sugar and 70 calories. All four flavors are certified USDA organic, plant-based, dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, carrageenan-free and non-GMO.
