As people are including more plant-based alternatives in their diet, Nestlé has released a plant-based version of its well-loved cocoa malt beverage powder—Milo, in the Australian market.
The core ingredients of this new plant-based powder remain the same as the original Milo—malt, barley and cocoa. While the milk powder will be replaced with soy and oats. Moreover, the product has lower sugar content compared to the original and has a combination of vitamins and minerals to support effective energy release.
The need for plant-based dairy alternatives that taste great and offer strong nutritionals is rising, as more families are following a flexitarian diet that is lighter on meat and dairy products. Many consumers cite environmental reasons, as plant-based products are produced with lower emissions, land- and water usage.
“People are looking to vary their diets with more plant-based options, including to lower their environmental footprint and for health reasons. We already have some great plant-based products and are now adding one of our biggest global brands with Milo. We’re continuing to make good on our promise to offer consumers food that is right for them and right for the planet,” said Trevor Clayton, head of the Dairy business unit at Nestlé.
