Discover Sproud Unsweetened: The Next Level Plant Based Milk
Our plant-based prayers have been answered and milk alternatives across the UK just got a whole lot healthier.
Sproud, the low carbon footprint, pea-protein milk alternative has launched Sproud Unsweetened - the new super-hero for over cereals, in your morning cuppas and for cooking in all your favourite plant-based recipes. A UK and European first, new Sproud Unsweetened comes with zero sugar and no compromise on taste.
The new cupboard essential has the closest taste to semi-skimmed milk with the same level of vitamins and minerals as skimmed milk.
If you’re thinking, ‘the catch must be how it tastes’, then you’d be wrong. Sproud Unsweetened has a natural creamy texture and neutral flavour, with a clean colour. In fact, in a taste test, nine out of ten consumers preferred Sproud Unsweetened to the leading unsweetened oats and soy-based milks on the market.
Made from yellow split peas, which are one of the most sustainable plant-based milk protein sources, Sproud has one mission; to be the best tasting non-dairy milk, with the lowest carbon footprint possible. Peas use minimal water, land and carbon to be produced, but they pack over three times the amount of protein than oat milk and five times the amount of almond milk, so it’s win-win all round. Put simply, Sproud does everything it can to be better for the planet and better for you.
Maria Tegman, Head of Brand at Sproud said:
“Consumers are looking to eat and live smarter than ever before. Our new Unsweetened addition to the Sproud family supports the need for a health-focussed, plant-based lifestyle. Too much sugar is a key concern in diets across the UK and by providing a healthy and nutritious alternative to semi-skimmed milk, we can help consumers take a step to making better food choices.”
The new Unsweetened addition replaces Sproud Original in the UK.
All Sproud products are vegan-friendly and free of allergens, including gluten and soy.
You won’t find Sproud in the chilled aisle, so pick your 1 litre Tetra Pak up from the ambient section in Waitrose, Ocado, Amazon and independent stores throughout the UK.
