With plant-based diets growing in popularity, more people are turning to alternatives to milk for their daily cereal, latte, desserts, baking or cooking.
However, it’s very difficult to find one great plant-based milk alternative for every use. Most cereal-, nut- or pea-based milk alternatives have a specific taste, are low in protein, or don’t mix or foam well in hot beverages. This meant you might need two or three plant-based options for different uses…until now.
Nestlé is launching Wunda, a new pea-based beverage that is ‘epic in everything’ that you would otherwise use milk for. That means you can drink it straight, pour over cereal, use in hot beverages, froth it, cook with it and much more.
Stefan Palzer, Nestlé Chief Technology Officer, says; “This truly versatile, delicious pea-based beverage is an excellent source of protein and fiber. Its great neutral taste, the ability to use it for different applications and the fact that it is carbon neutral make it an ideal plant-based alternative to milk. Our young intrapreneurs created this great product based on their own consumer needs by leveraging our longstanding expertise in plant-proteins and dairy.”
Wunda will launch first in France, the Netherlands and Portugal, with a roll-out to other European markets planned. In addition to the original recipe, the Wunda range includes unsweetened and chocolate versions.
