Koia, the 100% plant-based protein drink that is naturally nutritious, launched Koia Keto in collaboration with Whole Foods Market. The dessert-inspired line offers consumers a convenient, sweet indulgence to complement their ketogenic journey with three flavors: Chocolate Brownie, Cake Batter and Caramel Crème.
Known for replacing carbohydrates with fat, the keto diet puts the body into a metabolic state called ketosis, which allows it to be more efficient when burning fat for energy. Koia Keto is made with nutrient-dense ingredients, such as coconut milk and MCT oil, to provide sustained energy and deliver the desired ratio of 74% fat, 18% protein and 8% net carbs that help accelerate ketosis. While the ketogenic diet usually relies heavily on meat-based products and savory flavors, Koia Keto provides a unique, plant-based treat packed with 12 grams of protein and no added sugar.
After launching nationally at Whole Foods Market in 2016, Koia quickly scaled to become one of the most productive natural, refrigerated protein drinks on the market, and is now sold in more than 60 retailers and 4,000 stores across the country. In September 2018, Koia debuted its Fruit Infusions line to fill in a gap within the market for a fruit-forward, low-sugar protein drink. In addition to Koia Keto, Koia plans to continue expanding its product portfolio in 2019.
Koia Keto is now available exclusively at Whole Foods Market and at DrinkKoia.com for $4.99. All of Koia's varieties are vegan, Non-GMO Project verified, and free of dairy, soy and gluten.
