Consumers looking to avoid dairy and minimize sugar intake will enjoy the silky texture and mild flavor of Pacific Foods’ new Organic Reduced Sugar Oat Original Plant-Based Beverage. This latest variety boasts the same creamy consistency as Pacific’s Organic Original and Vanilla Oat flavors with 80% less sugar – only 3g of sugar per serving derived from the natural sweetness of oats. 
A plant-based beverage innovator, Pacific Foods debuted its first oat-based dairy-free beverage in 1996, and offers the widest selection of plant-based beverages on the market. With nearly 30 varieties in all including almond, cashew, hazelnut, hemp, coconut and soy, Pacific is eager to give loyal fans of its existing oat beverage line the new lower sugar option they crave.
When Pacific first introduced Organic Oat, it was a refreshing alternative for dairy-free beverage drinkers, but not as widely popular as Soy or Almond. Since then, oat beverages have surged in global popularity with data from the Good Food Institute and Plant Based Foods Association showing US sales of oat beverages increased by 868% in 2019 alone.
As with all Pacific Foods beverages, Organic Reduced Sugar Oat Original is Non-GMO Project Verified, vegan and carrageenan-free. Additionally, the new great-tasting variety provides non-dairy drinkers with a good source of calcium and Vitamin D, along with 4g of nourishing protein per 8oz serving. Pacific’s beverages are packaged in convenient non-BPA shelf-stable, recyclable cartons, requiring no refrigeration until after opening. Consumers can initially find the newest variety at select online retailers before rolling out to natural food stores and conventional grocers across the country beginning this summer for an SRP of $2.99-$3.99 per 32oz carton.
