Sanitarium launches new range of innovative plant milks

Sanitarium has launched Plantwell, a new range of plant milks, with clinically proven superplant and superfood ingredients.

The range includes a high protein soy milk with natural plant ingredients, such as seaweed calcium to build bone density, and prebiotic fibres to nurture gut flora; a cholesterol lowering oat milk with plant sterols; and an almond milk with powerful beta glucans to strengthen immune defences.

Anja Laudrin, Dietician and Brand Manager at Sanitarium, said they worked for more than four years researching superfood and superplant ingredients and balancing tastes and textures to create a delicious range of versatile plant milks with science-backed health benefits.

“This has included reviewing and collating comprehensive scientific evidence to substantiate the food-health relationships of key ingredients and notifying FSANZ, so we are able to use and communicate the clinically proven superplants and their health benefits.

“Sanitarium has led the way for plant milks in Australia since it introduced soy milk in 1986. We’re excited to be launching PLANTWELL and we will continue researching the latest science and driving product innovation, so we can make healthy food and beverages that are delicious and accessible to all Australians.”

Laudrin led the project with the aim of harnessing the power of clinically proven superplants to create naturally functional plant milks that meet genuine consumer needs.

The Plantwell range is vegan and free from dairy, lactose, preservatives, artificial colours and flavours, in addition to being low in sugar and saturated fat and high in fibre.

Plantwell milks will have a RRP of $4.50 and will be available from Woolworths this month, with broader distribution later in the year.
