DALLAS -- Dean Foods has reformulated its TruMoo chocolate milk with 40% less sugar than the original. The ready-to-drink chocolate milk is made with pure cocoa and natural sugar. Like regular milk, TruMoo provides eight essential nutrients: calcium, protein, vitamins A, D and B12, riboflavin, phosphorus and potassium.
The original TruMoo flavor is chocolate, sold as 1% lowfat milk in retail and fat-free in schools. Depending on regional variations, other varieties include strawberry and vanilla and are available in single serve (10-, 12-, 14- and 16-fl.oz.) bottles, as well as gallons, half gallons and quarts. TruMoo milk is offered in school and foodservice settings in half-pint containers.
One serving of TruMoo chocolate milk contains just 30 more calories than plain lowfat white milk. The fat-free variety of TruMoo served in schools contains only 120 calories per serving and 6g. of added sugar. The 1% variety has 140 calories.
