Virginia Dare, Brooklyn, NY, will be showcasing two new products at this year’s Ingredient Marketplace: Ginger Cardamom Black Tea and a Spicy Chocolate plant protein beverage.
As carbonated soft drinks decline and the tea category continues to grow in the U.S., the company said its unsweetened Ginger Cardamom Black Tea is sure to resonate with consumers by showcasing real tea extracts and highlighting the singular beauty of the tea in the absence of sugar and other sweeteners.
Similarly, plant protein beverages are one of the hottest segments in protein fortification. Virginia Dare’s Spicy Chocolate plant protein beverage sampling contains pea, rice, and hemp proteins delivering 14 grams of protein per 8 oz serving. Virginia Dare’s flavor masking technology solves the off flavor challenges of working with plant proteins allowing the characterizing flavors to deliver a complex profile complemented by a blend of spicy flavors.
