In response to growing consumer demand, Ripple Foods added Ripple Kids Unsweetened Original Milk to its portfolio of plant-based products. The company points out that its newest milk is an unsweetened version of its popular Kids Original Milk which launched in 2021 and was one of the fastest-growing products in the refrigerated plant-based milk category.

The unsweetened kids milk contains 8 grams of plant-based protein and 50 mg of DHA Omega-3s and Choline, with zero added sugars, the company says. It was developed in response to consumer desire for an unsweetened version of Ripple Kids plant-based milk.

"The feedback we have received from parents about Ripple Kids has been overwhelmingly positive. Parents consistently say Ripple Kids has been a game-changer for their family, due to the need for an alternative to dairy that provides great taste and optimal nutrition for children," said Laura Flanagan, CEO of Ripple Foods. "Parents also expressed a desire for an option without added sugar, so we felt it was important to bring this to the marketplace and give consumers the choices they're looking for — especially since Ripple Kids is the only plant-based milk developed specifically for kids."

Ripple Kids Unsweetened Original features zero grams added sugar, 8 grams of plant-based protein for growing bodies, healthy DHA Omega-3's for brain building nutrition, prebiotic fiber to support digestion, and provides more calcium per serving than dairy milk. 

"With so many kids suffering from dairy allergies or lactose intolerance today, it's important to have alternatives to dairy with the right taste and nutritional profile to meet their unique needs at such an important stage of growth and development," said Frances Largeman-Roth, RDN. "Ripple Kids plant-based milk offers families a convenient solution, and I'm excited there's now an unsweetened version without the added sugars, to provide even more choices. There's nothing else like this on the market," she added.

Ripple Kids Unsweetened Original comes in a 48-ounce bottle and can be purchased at Target and other retailers for a suggested retail price of $5.49-$6.49.
