Dairy and Coconut Milk Hybrid

By: iTi Innovation

Flexitarian diets, a concept that allows consumers to change the way they are eating without being exclusive to veganism, are rising in popularity.  Unlike other diets, the flexitarian diet is not restrictive; it is inclusive and flexible.   

 Because this diet is becoming more popular, the innovation team at iTi Tropicals are working on products that use plant-based fats in conjunction with animal protein. One of the products that our team is working on is combining coconut cream with dairy milk to create a “coconut milk product”.  We are taking skim milk so there is no fat from the animal and mixing it with our coconut cream to create a product that has a velvety mouthfeel from the coconut fat and also a higher protein than traditional coconut milk beverages/drinks.  This is designed for the person who wants a coconut milk product that has the same amount of protein as a regular glass of dairy milk with the benefits of plant-based fat. 

Simply blend 96% skim milk with 4% coconut cream at 24% fat to achieve a product that has an overall fat content of 1% with 8 grams of protein per 8 ounces
