Dean Foods Company introduced TruMoo Calcium Plus low-fat chocolate milk to its line of dairy products. Like regular TruMoo, a ready-to-serve refrigerated chocolate milk, TruMoo Calcium Plus milk contains no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial growth hormones and no artificial sweeteners – and is made with 50% more calcium per serving than regular low-fat white milk.
According to the National Institutes of Health, more than 50% of boys ages 9-13, girls ages 9-18, women over 50 and men over 70 are failing to meet their daily calcium requirements from diet alone. With the same chocolatey TruMoo taste, TruMoo Calcium Plus is a way to incorporate more calcium into a diet.
"Calcium is one of the most important minerals for the human body," said Katherine Brooking, MS, RD, Appetite for Health. "Not only is calcium essential for building strong, healthy bones, it also helps muscles, nerves and hormones function optimally. With 50 percent more calcium per serving than regular low-fat milk, TruMoo Calcium Plus chocolate milk is an easy and delicious way to help you and your family meet daily calcium needs."
