Almond Breeze: a new dairy alternative

Almond Breeze, 'a great tasting and all-natural alternative to milk' is made from almonds, and is poised to give the market a shake up this month as it launches in South Africa.

Purported to have great health benefits, Almond Breeze is a low-calorie, lactose-free alternative to dairy and can be used in cereals, smoothies, coffee, in baking or simply as a glass on its own.

Available in two varieties, 'Original' and 'Unsweetened', Almond Breeze is a great alternative for people looking to live a healthier lifestyle. It is also suitable for people with dairy allergies or those following a vegan diet.

As almond milk contains no cholesterol, it is also recommended for people suffering from heart disease or high cholesterol and the unsweetened variety has a low glycaemic index (GI) with no added sugar, making it a suitable option for health conscious consumers.

“Almond Breeze has been the leading almond milk in the United States for over a decade, offering a high quality and healthy alternative to milk,” says Brendan Binder, Global Director of Almond Breeze. “Over the past few years we have successfully launched in a number of markets around the world and we are excited to launch in South Africa, addressing the increasing demand for an alternative to dairy in the country.”

Almond Breeze combines the superfood health benefits of almonds with a delicious taste. It is packed with calcium as well as vitamin D and E to support strong bones and healthy skin, making it easier to manage a healthy lifestyle. Almond Breeze is proudly produced and distributed locally by Good Hope International Beverages and is GMO free, with no additives, MSG or preservatives.

“People are definitely paying more attention to their health, and whatever the reason you are looking for an alternative to dairy, Almond Breeze promises great taste with great health benefits,” adds Binder. Almond Breeze Original and Unsweetened are available in a 1L Tetra Pak and will retail in leading supermarkets around the country for a recommended selling price of R34,95.
