Big Train introduces four new dairy free beverage mixes

Drink Spotlight: Kerry Releases new Big Train® Dairy-Free Beverage Mixes


The new Big Train dairy-free beverage mixes come in four flavors--horchata, caramel latte, latte and mocha--and provide consumers with tasty beverage innovations fortified with a science-backed probiotic

BELOIT, Wis., July 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Kerry, the world's leading taste and nutrition company, has released exciting new dairy-free flavors in its Big Train® product family of hot and cold beverage mixes for use by foodservice operators. Fortified with Kerry's GanedenBC30®—a science-supported probiotic ingredient that helps support digestive and immune health—the four appealing new non-dairy flavors, horchata, caramel latte, latte and mocha, deliver probiotics in a tasty beverage format.

Consumers are becoming increasingly proactive in their efforts to manage their personal health, including by seeking to support immune function through choosing beverages that offer health benefits. At the same time, Kerry's proprietary consumer research has highlighted a gap in the foodservice industry's offerings. For example, with immune health the top benefit global consumers are seeking in healthy lifestyle products, 78% of those surveyed by Kerry are of the view that restaurants are failing to offer enough menu choices that feature functional benefits. In addition, the research shows that a remarkable 70% or more of these consumers are actively concerned about their digestive health. The Big Train range of new dairy-free beverage mixes addresses these findings.

Commenting on the release of the new beverage innovations, Abhishek Trivedi, Strategic Marketing Director for Big Train, said: "Big Train is a trusted brand for Kerry customers and their consumers. These new dairy-free beverage mixes allow every customer, regardless of dietary needs or preference, to indulge in their favorite frappe, mocha, steamer, chai or latte choice. Fortified with the Kerry science-backed GanedenBC30 probiotic, these excellent new drink offerings will help foodservice operators meet the growing consumer demand for products promoting digestive health, while simultaneously expanding the great taste experiences for which Big Train is already known."

Big Train is the leading manufacturer and distributor of premium, powdered gourmet beverage mixes that taste great and are easy to prepare. Big Train's collection includes a wide array of tasty products, among them blended ice coffees, coffee-free blended cremes, chai teas, protein coffee mixes and the new dairy-free mixes. All are permissible indulgence products that consumers both crave and appreciate.

Big Train chose GanedenBC30 because it is backed by more than 25 published scientific papers demonstrating its safety and efficacy. GanadenBC30 is also a spore-forming probiotic, meaning that the strain has superior survivability not only in the Big Train product manufacturing and production process but also the transit through the stomach into the intestines—where it works to support digestive and immune health.

Consumers have become increasingly concerned about overall wellness and are now looking to their everyday foods and beverages for functional benefits. Of note, more than half of the consumers surveyed perceived GanedenBC30 to support digestive health merely from seeing the logo. The credibility of GanedenBC30's extensive studies has led to 81% of US consumers believing the probiotic claim to be trustworthy, with 63% expressing interest in purchasing a product into which it is incorporated. In short, Big Train's new probiotic-fortified dairy-free mixes will help foodservice operators meet rising consumer calls for added functionality by facilitating more delicious, dairy-free drink options on menus.

Trivedi added: "With Kerry's research showing that 63% of consumers are actively trying to eat healthfully some or all of the time, purchasing Big Train non-dairy beverages will leave consumers feeling they've made a healthier choice without sacrificing taste or enjoyment."

Big Train takes great care to craft products of the highest quality only. Using simple ingredients and refreshing recipes proven to delight consumers, Big Train's full range of beverage mixes delivers on the brand's mandate to create pleasant and memorable beverage experiences. The brand is equally committed to ensuring that its portfolio of popular products remains reliably on trend, easy to adopt and use, and highly profitable. Big Train purchases can be made online at Webstaurant, Food Service Direct, Amazon, Serious Sips and Barista Pro Shop. View the new Big Train range of dairy-free beverage mixes here.

Snack Spotlight: ParmCrisps Launches Plant-Based, Dairy-Free Cheese Crisps


The 100% Cheese Cracker Enters the Plant-Based Category to Expand Consumer Base

MONTCLAIR, N.J., Sept. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- ParmCrisps, the nutritionally on-trend snack brand, has once again broken through the confines of the cracker category. The brand is eager to announce its newest line, Plant-Based ParmCrisps, made from 100% dairy-free cheese. Plant-Based ParmCrisps will come in two timeless flavors: Sea Salt and Cracked Black Pepper, and will be a first-of-its kind product that caters to the plant-based lifestyle.

Grocery sales of plant-based foods have grown 29% in the past two years, according to SPINS data released in 2020. Plant-based cheese, in particular, has seen an 18% spike since 2019. Americans are increasingly enlisting in a plant-based lifestyle with vegan options, and the plant-based category has exploded to reach $5 Billion in 2020. As a result, restaurants, retailers and food brands are innovating swiftly and strategically.

"The ParmCrisps innovation strategy has always been developed with the consumer top-of-mind," says Sam Kestenbaum, CEO of ParmCrisps. "When we noticed a trend toward plant-based snacking, we partnered with Whole Foods to create a solution for both our consumers and our retail partners. Plant-Based ParmCrisps is that solution, and it tastes so good that we're confident both mainstream and plant-based consumers will fall in love."

According to SPINS, the last 52 weeks have proved ParmCrisps as the number one Cheese Crisp brand in both the Natural and Grocery category, as well as the Natural Channel's fastest growing brand in the entire cracker set. As the Natural Channel leader, Whole Foods and its parent company, Amazon, partnered closely with ParmCrisps for the development and launch of this dairy-free crisp, and will have an exclusive on the item in 2020. This first-ever dairy-free cheese crisp will be driving incremental basket sizes and bringing new consumers into the exploding Cheese Crisp category.

Consumers can find these first of their kind, plant-based cheese crisps in Whole Foods nationwide in October 2020 for an SRP of $4.79. ParmCrisps are the first ever no sugar, no gluten snack made from real, oven-baked cheese, and now, dairy-free options.

About ParmCrisps
ParmCrisps Branded Snacks are artisan-crafted, crunchy crisps made from oven-baked cheese and premium seasonings. Whether consumers are Keto, Plant-Based or Sugar-Free, ParmCrisps brings them a go-to snack that fits their cravings and lifestyle. ParmCrisps also offers Snack Mixes, the first low-carb, low-sugar Snack Mix to satisfy even the biggest cravings. The brand has been celebrated as a favorite, innovative snack by Food Network, Hungry Girl, NOSH, Medium, Whole Foods Magazine, Oxygen Magazine and more.

About COYO

COYO founder Henry Gosling was born and raised in Fiji, the grandson of a shipwrecked mariner from England, Captain Harry Gosling. He grew up in Suva and spent his school holidays wandering the coconut plantations of Savu Savu, surrounded by sprouting coconut saplings. As the eldest son of six children, his job was to collect coconuts for dinner, scrape out the succulent white flesh, grate it and squeeze it into milk for the family’s evening meal — usually a coconut curry. While kids in Australia shelled peas, Henry scraped coconuts. There was an implicit understanding amongst the Fijian people that coconuts were not only delicious, but very nourishing. Coconut milk, water, oil and flesh had sustained them for generations, but it would take many years before the science caught up with what the Fijians already knew. Read More

Dairy Free Spotlight: Mooala Introduces Strawberry Bananamilk


Leading maker of premium, plant-based beverages launches industry's first strawberry flavored, dairy-free milk alternative available in the marketplace

DALLAS, Oct. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Building on the success of its original, Organic Bananamilk variety, Mooala, a leading maker of premium, organic, dairy-free beverages, announced the introduction of Mooala Strawberry Bananamilk—the first strawberry flavored, dairy-free milk alternative in the marketplace today. Answering growing consumer need for tasty, plant-based options without added sugar, Mooala's new Strawberry Bananamilk hits the refrigerated aisle at select Whole Foods and Albertsons-Safeway stores beginning this month, with additional retailers slated to carry the new beverage in late 2018 or early 2019.

"People from all walks of life are embracing a plant-powered lifestyle, and we're also observing that traditional dairy drinkers' diets are shifting to incorporate more plant-based alternatives," comments Mooala Founder and CEO Jeff Richards. "Our latest innovation—Mooala Strawberry Bananamilk—features a blissfully sweet flavor profile that fuses real organic strawberries and bananas to give today's shoppers a delicious, but guilt-free, smoothie base or standalone treat packed with nutrition for growing families."

Crafted from real fruits and roasted sunflower seeds, the new Mooala Strawberry Bananamilk (MSRP $5.99) is USDA-certified Organic and offers an exciting new flavor to the marketplace that consumers may enjoy guilt-free. At just 70 calories per serving and no added sugar, this nut-free vegan beverage features about as much potassium as a small banana, while providing an excellent source of calcium and a good source of vitamin C in every serving. Mooala Strawberry Bananamilk is carrageenan- and gluten-free, and kosher, with no preservatives added.

Mooala Strawberry Bananamilk joins the company's full suite of organic beverages, including Original Almondmilk, Vanilla Bean Almondmilk, Original Bananamilk and Chocolate Bananamilk, to provide individuals with lactose intolerance, nut-free diets, or those simply looking to embrace a healthy lifestyle with a wide range of great-tasting options with uncompromised quality.

Launched in 2016, Mooala was inspired by Richards' own lactose intolerance and his inability to find a quality non-dairy alternative he wanted to drink. The popularity of its signature Bananamilk has skyrocketed in recent months, having being named one of the top food trends for 2018 by Whole Foods Market and industry leading tastemakers.

Mooala is available in over 1,500 retailers nationwide, including Whole Foods Market, Wegmans, ShopRite, Costco, Albertsons-Safeway, Giant, Stop & Shop and more.
