Continuing its journey toward its vision of Plants Powering People™, Bolthouse Farms introduced two new plant-powered innovations that deliver function, taste and value to those looking for more options: plant-based Bolthouse Farms Protein Keto™ beverages and plant-based Refrigerated Dressings. Since being acquired just over a year ago, the new Bolthouse Farms has been dedicated to creating a more plant-based food economy that is accessible, delicious and satisfying for consumers. These new products are the beginning of realizing this goal.
“The new Bolthouse Farms was born out of a vision and passion for guiding a new way for people to eat and live healthier lifestyles,” said Bolthouse Farms CEO Jeff Dunn. “We are constantly looking for ways to innovate and bring plant-based products to the marketplace that not only taste great but also deliver on functionality and great value. These new lines are just the beginning of a range of innovations to come.”
The new plant-based Bolthouse Farms Protein Keto beverage line joins the company’s current line of grass-fed-dairy-based Bolthouse Farms Protein Keto beverages, increasing the number of convenient options available for consumers who follow a Keto diet or who are looking for more plant-based protein alternatives. Made with coconut milk and pea protein, the plant-based Bolthouse Farms Protein Keto beverages are vegan, non-dairy, non-GMO, gluten and soy-free, and contain no artificial flavors, preservatives, colors or sweeteners.
Available in three flavors – Mocha Truffle Latte, Cinnamon Horchata and Hazelnut Fudge – plant-based Bolthouse Farms Protein Keto beverages contain 12g of vegan protein, 1g sugar, 2-3g net carbs and MCTs from coconut. Low in net carbs with no added sugar, the entire lineup of Bolthouse Farms Protein Keto beverages appeals to consumers who are trying to limit or avoid added sugar.
“As Bolthouse Farms continues to innovate healthier and more functional beverages, we saw an opportunity to provide consumers with a great-tasting, plant-based protein beverage option for those following Keto or those looking for lower-sugar and plant-based choices,” said Bolthouse Farms Vice President of Marketing, AJ Bernstein.
Bolthouse Farms® plant-based Refrigerated Dressings lineup joins the existing line of the company’s refrigerated yogurt-based conventional dressings. The plant-based dressing line consists of two oat-based and two veggie-blend varieties which rely on a combination of vegetables, herbs, spices, seeds and whole oat flour.
Available in four flavors – Garden Ranch, Habanero Blue, Carrot Miso and Green Goddess – the plant-based refrigerated dressings are made with natural, simple ingredients and are all vegan/dairy free, gluten free, non-GMO and contain no artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, sweeteners or gums.
Furthering the company’s vision of Plants Powering People™, these two plant-based product line-ups are the first in a larger suite of innovations to be announced in coming months, including products which support a healthier lifestyle, with great taste, to meet consumers rapidly changing needs.
