DALLAS, Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Dean Foods (NYSE: DF) just made it easier and more delicious to help power up your day and keep you fueled with new TruMoo® Protein Plus milk. The nutritious, protein-rich drink, available in chocolate and vanilla flavors, provides 25 grams of protein in every single-serve, resealable 14-ounce bottle, plus all the essential vitamins and nutrients of milk to give you energy and keep you going throughout the day.
TruMoo Protein Plus is the perfect on-the-go wholesome snack, especially when you need a protein boost. With TruMoo Protein Plus milk, increasing protein intake is easier than ever before. Simply grab the single-serve bottle and go.
And, unlike water, juice and many sports drinks, TruMoo Protein Plus packs in the additional benefit of calcium for your post-workout recovery drink option.
“After our successful pilot program in the West, we’re thrilled to introduce TruMoo Protein Plus to consumers nationwide,” said Greg Schwarz, Vice President of Marketing, Dean Foods. “Protein intake is important to our consumers, whether they’re gearing up for an important meeting, or recovering from a three-mile run. That’s why we’re delighted to be able to give our TruMoo fans a nutritious and delicious way to add protein to their every day diets.”
Like regular TruMoo, the nation’s leading ready-to-serve chocolate milk brand*, TruMoo Protein Plus is made with real milk and contains no Artificial Growth Hormones and no High Fructose Corn Syrup. TruMoo Protein Plus also provides eight essential nutrients: calcium, protein, vitamins A, D and B12, riboflavin, phosphorus and potassium – just like regular milk.
TruMoo Protein Plus is available in the dairy case at grocery, convenience and drug stores nationwide, in chocolate and vanilla flavors. Each 14-ounce bottle has a suggested retail price of $1.99 – $2.29.
