Alpina Foods rolls out coffee-infused yogurt
MIAMI — Alpina Foods on Monday announced the launch of a line of yogurts infused with coffee. The yogurts — dubbed Alpina Café Selections — will include mocha, caramel macchiato, vanilla latte and coffee.
Alpina Café Selections use real Colombian coffee rather than coffee flavoring, making the product different than what’s currently on store shelves, according to the company.
"Thirty-four percent of Americans drinks coffee, higher than soda consumption. Specialty coffee makes up a large percentage of this growth, which is why we decided to launch Alpina Café Selections," said Gustavo Badino, Alpina Foods' general manager. "We are always looking to innovate in the dairy aisle. Once we found a recipe that tasted just like the consumer's favorite flavor and were able to include actual Colombian coffee, we knew we had a unique product the consumer would want and enjoy.”
According to the company, Alpina Café Selections contain 12 g of protein, 0 g of fat and 30-50 mg of caffeine — equivalent to about half a cup of coffee. The yogurts are sold at select retail locations, including ShopRite, Shaw’s, Fairway Markets and Lowe’s Markets. The company plans to expand distribution of the product this summer.

Boca rolls out new protein-packed line
MADISON, Wis. — Boca, a brand from Kraft Foods Group, earlier this week debuted Boca Essentials, a line of vegetable- and grain-based patties that promises to deliver “complete protein” for consumers opting for meatless meals.
To meet consumer demand for bold flavors, the brand is offering three varieties that take inspiration from classic dishes:
- Breakfast Scramble with potatoes, scrambled eggs and vegetables;
- Roasted Vegetables and Red Quinoa with brown rice; and
- Chile Relleno with green chile peppers, black beans and brown rice.
"This new Boca Essentials line fills a need for vegetable- and grain-based meal components that also offer the protein a body needs for a balanced diet," said Zach Meyers, brand manager of Boca. "With complete protein in each variety of Boca Essentials, we think this innovation from a brand that consumers know and trust will excite both longtime Boca fans and those enjoying their first bites of Boca."
Boca Essentials are available at select retailers nationwide. A 10-oz. pack contains four patties and is priced at $4.29.
