Silk Nextmilk: taste and texture so close to dairy, you won’t believe it’s plant-based

Danone Canada launched Nextmilk under the Silk Canada brand – a new dairy-free beverage with a flavour profile that mirrors dairy milk so closely, you won’t believe it’s plant-based!

Backed by extensive research and consultation of the company’s dairy experts, Nextmilk was created to mimic the iconic and nostalgic experience of drinking dairy milk while maintaining a plant-based profile. Silk’s Nextmilk will help dairy-loving consumers overcome plant-based barriers while prompting further choice.

“Silk Nextmilk is the result of two years of relentless and unwavering innovation, testing and creative application from Danone’s Research and Innovation team which has unparalleled expertise in both dairy and plant-based beverages,” says Pierre Morin, Vice President of Research and Innovation at Danone Canada. “During the recipe development process, we thoroughly studied the beloved dairy taste attributes and engaged in robust testing, trying out hundreds of high-quality plant-based ingredient pairings to best recreate the taste of dairy. What we have been able to achieve is a versatile product that most closely mimics the taste of dairy milk so that whether consumers want to enjoy it in their coffee, with their cereal, or in recipes, plant-curious dairy lovers can easily add it to their shopping list.”

Silk Nextmilk is now available in the refrigerated section at major retailers nationwide. Silk Nextmilk​ is an excellent source of vitamin B12 and riboflavin, a good source of calcium, and a source of vitamin D, vitamin A, zinc and fibre. It contains 3 g of sugar per 250 mL and is a non-GMO Project verified product. It is free from lactose, gluten, carrageenan and artificial colours and flavours.
