Whenever we think for any alternative of milk, first thing which comes into our mind is soy milk, almond milk, oat milk or any other non-dairy milk made from nuts, etc. But recently DUG redefined the alternative milk by launching world’s first potato milk.
DUG, a Swedish milk brand which produces delicious, creamy, and vegan-friendly plant-based drink. Dug, owned by Veg of Lund founded in 2016, which produces organic, vegan, plant-based goodness, packed with nutrients, vitamins & Omega 3s products and no added sugar, lactose, dairy, gluten, nuts, animal produce or plastic. Veg of Lund has launched a range of plant-based milk made from potatoes under the brand name DUG.
The milk is available for sale in UK and Sweden and at some online stores. The delicious, creamy, and vegan-friendly plant-based drink is available in three flavors – Original, Unsweetened, and Barista. All these three are made from milk and rapeseed oil with some additional ingredients for maintaining quality and greater nutritional value.
Unsweetened, and Barista. All these three are made from milk and rapeseed oil with some additional ingredients for maintaining quality and greater nutritional value.
These drinks comprise of a potato base with some pea proteins, maltodextrin, chicory fiber, rapeseed oil, and natural flavorings. They are free from lactose, dairy, soy, gluten and nuts so therefore basically it’s the perfect drink for people having lactose and gluten intolerance or having any kind of nut allergies, while being fortified with vitamins including Vitamin D, Vitamin B12 and folic acid.
It’s also a more sustainable option than other milks. Reason being that potatoes are easy to grow and develop and the transportation costs associated with this will also be low. This milk uses 56 times water less than almond milk and these can be grown on half the land needed for oat milk. The company said “the carbon footprint of potatoes is 75% lower than the dairy milk “.
