Blue Diamond, the world’s leading producer and marketer of almonds, announces a new addition to its selection of Almond Breeze products with the launch of Almond Breeze® Original Almond & Oat Blend.
Almond Breeze® Original Almond & Oat Blend combines the delicious flavor of the best California almonds with the creaminess of oat for a dreamy, dairy-free milk for any occasion. It has more calcium than dairy milk and fewer calories and less sugar than other oatmilks available on the market.
According to a recent survey of 2,000 American adults commissioned by Almond Breeze®, nearly half (48%) of respondents said their top health-related goal for the New Year was eating healthier. Additionally, 45% of respondents noted they would make healthier decisions if they were able to find options that taste good.
“We know that eating healthier is on the forefront of a lot of consumers’ minds, and are excited to offer this product that is both delicious and nutritious,” said Maya Erwin, Vice President of Innovation and R&D at Blue Diamond. “Almond Breeze® Original Almond & Oat Blend not only provides a great taste and creamy texture, but it is also a healthier alternative to other oatmilks.”
A one-cup serving of Almond Breeze® Almond & Oat Blend contains only 4g total sugar, 45 calories, and 450mg of calcium, with 30% less sugar* and 50% fewer calories* than the national average of the leading original oatmilk brands. It also has 50% more calcium** than dairy milk.
Almond Breeze® Original Almond & Oat Blend can be enjoyed by the glass, with coffee or cereal, or as a deliciously creamy swap for dairy in any usage occasion. It’s great for consumers with lactose allergies or sensitivities, or for those who enjoy non-dairy beverages and cooking with plant-based alternatives.
