Milk without cows may not be anything new. But yogurt without milk seems just shy of revolutionary. Yet that's exactly what Ripple—the Silicon Valley startup that created pea milk—is trying to develop now, according to an article in Fast Company.
In 2015, Ripple launched its pea milk commercially at Whole Foods, where demand has grown so rapidly for the product—by 300 percent in a year—the company feels confident enough with its foray to try making other traditional dairy foods dairy-free.
Ripple will launch its new products—dairy-free Greek yogurt and half-and-half— using the same proprietary ingredient it does in its pea milk. Dubbed Ripptein, the additive strips away plant flavors and leaves behind only protein, according to Fast Company. (That's one reason Ripple's pea milk doesn't taste like liquefied legumes.)
