In September, dairy brand Carnation will release a vegan version of its condensed milk at supermarket chain Ocado in the United Kingdom. The new product will retail for slightly more than its animal-based counterpart and was created to be used in baking for “an extra fudgy flavor and texture to banoffee pie, fudge, brownies, and cheesecake.”
Carnation parent company Nestlé developed the new vegan condensed milk, made with oat and rice flour, over the course of 18 months. “It has been a challenge for vegans to find suitable alternatives to make dairy or caramel-based sweets treats or desserts, without having to compromise on taste, texture, or appearance,” Vittoria Simms, Nestlé Marketing Lead for Dairy Brands UK, told The Grocer.
The new vegan Carnation condensed milk will also be available at Tesco and Morrisons supermarkets in October.
