NEW YORK — Yogurt maker Siggi’s has introduced its first plant-based recipe that is high in protein and low in sugar.
The dairy-free coconut blends are rich and creamy like yogurt but made with a blend of coconut, macadamia and pea protein, according to the company. Each 5.3-ounce cup contains 10 grams of protein and 8 to 9 grams of sugar.
The snack comes in vanilla cinnamon, mixed berries, raspberry and mango varieties, and it arrived at grocery and other retail stores in December.
"Like our dairy products, our plant-based products are rich, creamy, lower in sugar and higher in protein than what's available on the market today," founder and Chairman Siggi Hilmarsson said. "Nearly 15 years ago, we started a low-sugar, simple-ingredient revolution with our signature skyr and now continue to deliver on that commitment in plant-based as well."
The New York-based company is known for its Icelandic yogurt products that do not contain any artificial preservatives, sweeteners, flavors or colors.
