This is the season of resolutions and recommitments to fitness routines. Many people are setting new wellness goals and seeking ways to incorporate more plants into their diets while getting the protein they need to fuel their active lifestyles. To support them Silk is introducing Silk ULTRA – one of the first multi-serve beverages on the market with 20 grams of complete plant-based protein for muscle maintenance and repair.
Whether you are an athlete, a fitness enthusiast, or are just starting on your wellness journey, Silk ULTRA is an excellent source of calcium and vitamins A and D as well as vitamins B2 and B12, which help your body turn food into energy.
“Fitness enthusiasts know that protein plays a critical role in supporting muscle performance, and serious athletes are incorporating more plant-based options into their diets and training regimens,” said Andrew Hartshorn, senior vice president, plant-based food and beverages for Silk. “As the experts in developing delicious plant-based beverages for over 30 years, Silk saw a real consumer need for a great-tasting plant-based beverage in the protein space. Silk ULTRA delivers complete plant-based protein and truly delicious taste, so athletes don’t have to compromise.”
While other protein supplements and beverages are notorious for having a chalky, gritty taste, Silk Ultra is smooth and delicious. Enjoy it straight out of the carton, in a smoothie, or even over cereal Silk ULTRA is available in multi-serve cartons in Creamy Chocolate, Unsweet, and Original., which contains 2.5 times the protein of traditional dairy milk.
“I know from personal experience that high-intensity training can put a lot of stress on the body,” said Michael Phelps, who likes to get protein from plants when possible. “Protein is an important part of the muscle repair process for me— along with a good night’s sleep—and Silk ULTRA is an excellent drink for athletes who are looking to make the most of their workouts.”
“Over the past few years, I’ve followed a mostly plant-based diet and I’m always looking for ways to include more protein in my snacks and meals—so when Silk gave me an early taste of this new product, I was thrilled,” said Aly Raisman. “Silk ULTRA is a great addition to my smoothies to help me recover after a Pilates class or a more intense workout where my heart is pumping.”
Silk ULTRA is available now in the refrigerated section at grocery stores nationwide and retails for $4.99. To find out where Silk ULTRA is available near you, visit Silk.com and follow @Silk on Twitter and Instagram.
