This week, Texas-based brand Mooala launched its newest product line: Keto Mylk, the world’s first keto-certified vegan milk. The coconut cream-based milk was created specifically for consumers following a keto diet—characterized by a low intake of sugar and carbohydrates—and features MCT (medium-chain triglycerides) oil derived from coconuts. Each serving contains 70 calories, no added sugar, and less than one gram of net carbs. Keto Mylk is certified organic and available in Cinnamon Roll, Chocolaty Chip, Vanilla Crème, and Original flavors.
“Each morning, Mooala lovers can now wake up, pour Keto Mylk in a glass and jump-start their day with dynamic, energy-driving MCTs in an almost zero-carb beverage made from delicious, organic ingredients,” Mooala Founder and CEO Jeff Richards said. “Since the product’s high-quality fats are derived from coconuts, our customers can feel really great about meeting their desired goals while also boosting their plant-based diets with a really satisfying beverage.”
Filling the gap
Products made to support the keto diet often center around animal products, making it difficult for consumers to find plant-based options. “The plant-based keto market is significantly underserved, and Mooala is filling a gap that has long existed,” Karen Pendergrass, CEO of the Keto Certified Foundation, said.
Mooala’s Keto Mylk is now available on its website and at Sprouts stores nationwide. In the first quarter of 2021, Keto Mylk will expand to approximately 1,000 retail stores, including Wegmans, Whole Foods, Safeway/Albertsons, and more.
While Mooala’s newest product line is made with coconuts, it offers a variety of milks made with oat and almond bases. The company is best known for its Bananamilk (made from a blend of bananas and sunflower seeds) which it offers in Original, Strawberry, and Chocolate flavors. Mooala also makes coffee creamers with banana, oat, and coconut cream bases.
