Blue Diamond almond milk SUN VALLEY, CA -- New from Blue Diamond is a line of almond milk beverages in 11-fl.oz. re-closable aseptic packages. The new extension to Blue Diamond's Almond Breeze line presently includes three flavors: original, original unsweetened and vanilla unsweetened. The 11-fl.oz. screwtop packages are designed to offer the convenience desired by "grab-and-go" cold drink consumers.

The company reports that Almond Breeze addresses the growing demand for products perceived to offer health and wellness benefits. Blue Diamond almond milk is an all-natural alternative to soy and dairy milks; it contains no lactose, casein, gluten, peanuts, cholestero1, saturated fat, peanuts, eggs or monosodium glutamate. It is said to be lower in calories than dairy milk, and it appeals strongly to vegetarian, vegan, kosher-observant, gluten-sensitive and lactose-intolerant consumers.

According to Blue Diamond, soymilk and dairy sales are declining while almond milk sales are on the increase, and Almond Breeze almond milk is the fastest-growing brand. It also is available at retail in 32-fl.oz. aseptic packages.

Founded in 1910, Blue Diamond was the first grower-owned almond marketing cooperative; it has become the world's largest almond company.

Almond Breeze is available in foodservice through the Sugar Foods broker network. Information may be found at foodservice.bluediamond.com.
