Darigold debuts high-protein, low-sugar milk
Darigold, Seattle, added Darigold Fit to its line of milk products. The milk, which is ultafiltered and lactose-free, contains 75% more protein and 40% less sugar than regular 2% milk. The farmer-owned cooperative’s ultrafiltration process naturally concentrates protein and removes sugars, resulting in milk packed with nutrition. Darigold said it created the Fit line to respond to consumer demand for less sugar and more protein in dairy products. Darigold Fit is available at retailers that include Albertson’s, Fred Meyer, QFC, Safeway and Walmart. The product is priced at $3.99 for a 59-ounce carton and $1.99 for a single-serve 14-ounce bottle. Darigold is also offering Fit Chocolate, with more protein, less sugar and fewer ingredients than its competitors.
