Australia: Patons Macadamia launches macadamia milk range

The Australian macadamia nut manufacturer Patons Macadamia has rolled out its own range of non-dairy alternative milk under the Suncoast Gold brand.

The compan ysaid it had launched the  new product to tap into growing interest in healthy dairy alternative drinks.

“Macadamia Milk is a tasty, lactose free and gluten free, non-dairy drink alternative containing all the great health benefits that macadamias offer,” said Tim Jarman, Head of Sales & Marketing at Patons.“ [It is also] cholesterol free, high in monounsaturated fats and a great source of antioxidants, proteins and dietary fibre, which helps to keep us feeling satisfied for longer and works to lower the risk of heart disease, and tastes great”.

Suncoast Gold Macadamia Nut Milk is available from November in two varieties – original and unsweetened –  at independent IGA supermarkets and natural food stores, for an RRP of A$4.69 ($3.99). It will be available at selected Woolworths stores from early 2015.
