Danone Canada’s Silk® continues to forge a plant-based revolution with the launch of its new protein plant-based yogurt featuring Canadian pea protein. With 12g of protein per 175g serving and a signature Greek-style thick texture, the new Silk® plant-based yogurt is available in Key Lime and Vanilla flavours, delivering on exceptional taste, consistency, and nutrition. Silk® also introduces an improved recipe, new flavours and sizes for its current range of coconut plant-based yogurts.
“The new Silk® protein plant-based yogurt range provides Canadians a versatile offering that meets ever-changing dietary needs and preferences, while also providing them enhanced locality from the Silk® brand,” says Pierre Morin, Vice President of Research & Innovation at Danone Canada. “We know from our research that not only are Canadians looking for products that help them achieve their daily protein intake goals, they’re also looking to purchase products sourced and produced in Canada. With this launch, we are proud to announce our use of Canadian pea protein to create a great tasting, high in protein product that supports local sourcing and production”.
With the launch of this range, Danone Canada has committed to bringing the majority of its Silk® Yogurt production to its local manufacturing plant in Boucherville, Quebec, helping to meet the evolving needs of Canadian consumers actively searching for products made locally. This new product line will be made entirely with Canadian pea protein.
Silk®’s Regular Category has revamped its entire range for its coconut plant-based yogurts, with flavours available in Plain, Vanilla, Strawberry-Raspberry and Peach. The now more neutral-tasting recipe is also a source of calcium, vitamin D and vitamin B12.
Silk® Active Health Category’s popular, creamy probiotic plant-based yogurt is now available in a bigger 625g format and two delicious flavours: Blueberry and Cherry. The recipe includes more than 109 CFU Bifidobacterium lactis per portion, a probiotic that contributes to healthy gut flora.
Silk®’s new protein plant-based yogurt and improved line of coconut plant-based yogurts are now available in the refrigerated section at major retailers in Ontario and rolling out across the country.
