Eugene, OR – Manufacturer Launches World’s First Non-Dairy Creamer Made with Coconut Milk – From America’s most innovative dairy-free foods company comes something truly unique – an all natural coffee creamer made with coconut milk.
So Delicious® Coconut Milk Creamer is the latest addition to Turtle Mountain’s portfolio of dairy-free inventions. From ice cream to yogurt to kefir to coffee creamer, the manufacturer showcases coconut milk as a highly versatile base ingredient. Coconut milk gives the creamer a clean, slightly sweet taste with a creamy mouth feel that is distinct from soy based products currently on the market. “We are merely responding to the demand from our consumers for delicious alternatives to soy and dairy products,” says John Tucker, Vice President of Marketing. “Not only does coconut milk have a delicious taste, it also possesses unique health benefits.”
For centuries coconut has been a staple for cultures around the world. Tradition attributes healing and life-giving properties to the coconut, which is why the palm is often called, ‘Tree of Life’. In western society, the health benefits of coconuts are just beginning to be understood. The mystery appears to be in the type of fats found in coconut milk, namely Medium Chain Fatty Acids, which are recognized for their antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties. Unlike long chain fatty acids, which are stored in the body as fat, MCFAs are utilized as energy by the body.
Surprisingly light for a product made with coconut milk, So Delicious® French Vanilla Creamer weighs in at only 20 calories with 0 grams of fat and 4 grams of sugar per serving. By contrast, International Delight® French Vanilla has 45 calories, 2 grams of fat and 6 grams of sugar per serving.
Naturally cholesterol free and made without soy, gluten, dairy or high fructose corn syrup, the creamer is packaged in recyclable cardboard containers with a plastic spout and available in: Original, French Vanilla and Hazelnut. Suggested Retail Price for So Delicious® Coconut Milk Creamer is $3.99 per pint and can be found nationally at Whole Foods Markets and other natural food retailers.
