First Choice, manufactured by Woodlands Dairy, has launched Power Cup, a long-life dairy snack. Developed as a healthy option for in-between meals and made with real milk, it is packed with dairy goodness and nutritionals.
“Healthy snack, traditionally, yoghurt is a chilled snack typically eaten at breakfast, but the emergence of ambient dairy snacks have changed it into a convenient, any time snack.”
Shelf-stable or ambient dairy snacks offer similar nutritional benefits to traditional, fermented and chilled yoghurt, but can be consumed on the move as it does not need refrigeration.
Since it is heat treated, the culture is eliminated and not present in the final product. The heat treatment extends the shelf life, which means the unopened product can be stored for up to six months.
Although it is referred to as a dairy snack and not yoghurt, it is still made with dairy milk with all its nutritional benefits.
“Power Cup is healthy, filling and available in a variety of tantalising flavours. It can be enjoyed at room temperature, chilled or frozen. Another advantage is that no refrigeration is required for storage when the product is unopened.”
Power Cup is available in five flavours including Strawberry, Strawberry and Banana, Granadilla, Cream Soda and Coconut.
