Picnik is known for making grass-fed butter creamer, but they now have a non-dairy side too. They’ve turned to MCT oil, from coconuts, to create the same rich consistency without a pat of butter. This simple swap might also give Picnik dairy-free creamers a more beneficial nutrition boost.
According to studies, MCT oil can aid in weight loss, enhance energy, fuel your brain, and might even help with some autoimmune disorders. Which is why Naomi Seifter, CEO and founder of Picnik, decided to use MCT oil to make both Picnik dairy-free creamers.
I created Picnik after discovering the life-changing difference that high-quality fats and other functional ingredients could have on physical health and mental clarity. Based on the response we received to our Original Creamer, we knew we wanted to expand the line so it was more inclusive of all dietary needs. Inclusiveness is a core value we live by, so I’ve worked hard to create our new offerings keeping in mind consumers who are vegan or prefer plant-based food as well as the millions out there who are already putting collagen in their coffee daily.
