New powdered beverages on the market feature keto or vegan formulations and functional benefits.
Z Natural Foods, West Palm Beach, Fla., recently introduced Organic Vanilla Cream Vegan Protein. This lightly sweetened vanilla-flavored plant protein powder is keto-friendly. The protein comes from organic pea protein, organic rice protein and organic pumpkin seed proteins. It contains no fillers or synthetic ingredients and mixes well with water and is great in smoothies, milk or juice. To enhance the taste and texture, the powder contains organic coconut milk.
“Coconut milk really is the ideal supporting ingredient as it is packed with phytonutrients, healthy fats, amino acids, vitamins and minerals,” said Sam Hirschberg, director of marketing. “Like all our powders, we also dry our coconut at a low temperature to preserve all the naturally occurring enzymes, nutrients and flavor.”
The company also has a new cashew milk powder. Cashew beverage contains omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, calcium, iron, potassium, and zinc as well as vitamins A, C, D, E and K.
