We are proud to announce that two of our Silk varieties were named as two of the  best milk alternatives by Real Simple magazine.  We are humbled by the support of media and our fans and strive to keep them satisfied.

Our winners were Silk Soymilk Original, which was awarded as the Best Original Soy milk alternative and Silk Soymilk Vanilla,  awarded as the Best Vanilla Soy milk alternative.

Silk Soymilk Original was praised generously for its flavor and versatility:

“This rich, high protein standby, which comes slightly sweetened, pairs well with everything from coffee to oatmeal.”

Silk Soymilk Vanilla was lauded for its non-artificial flavor:

“While others can taste over-the-top syrupy or artificial, this blend has a mild sweetness and a creamy feel.”

We  thank Real Simple for their kind words about two of our most prized products. We would also like to congratulate the various other brands that made the list and encourage them to keep up the good work.

Cheers to milk alternatives!

Bringing Home the Medals

We are proud to announce that three WhiteWave products were chosen by Prevention Magazine in its 100 Cleanest Packaged Food Awards of 2014. Silk’s Organic Unsweetened Soymilk, Horizon’s Organic Whole Milk and Earthbound Farm’s Tomatillo, Black Bean, and Baby Lettuce PowerMeal were all chosen as products that met and exceeded the criteria set by Prevention Magazine:

  • Must have no more than 10 g of added sugar
  • Must have less than 200 mg of sodium per serving (or 400 mg for meals)
  • All cans must be free of BPA
  • All fish must be sustainable, according to Monterey Bay Aquarium seafood criteria
  • All foods had to be absolutely delicious

Prevention had only compliments for Silk’s Organic Unsweetened Soymilk, it captured a spot in the beverage list:

“With no added sugar and 7 grams of protein, it’s the ultimate cereal-splasher for the dairy-free crowd. Just a cup provides 30% of your daily calcium and vitamin D, plus half of your B12 allotment. Make ours a soymilk mustache.”

Also in the beverage category, Prevention praised the natural values of Horizon Organic Whole Milk:

“For drinkers of cow milk, going organic gets you lots of benefits. Organic milk is free of hormones, and the cows from which it’s squeezed even tend to live longer than conventional cows. And it’s still the king of calcium: a cold glass of Horizon organic milk will get you 30% of that daily bone-building mineral.”

Finally, Prevention expressed its affection for Earthbound Farm’s  Tomatillo, Black Bean, and Baby Lettuce PowerMeal:

“We first fell in love with Earthbound Farm for their salad-ready organic lettuce and kale. But this year, they went the extra mile with a new ready-made salad PowerMeal. It’s the perfect complete lunch: an organic mixed greens base, plus a creamy dressing (a little goes a long way!), tortilla strips for crunch, and protein-packed beans. Guaranteed to be your new work fridge staple.”

The good news continued on Thursday morning. Siobhan O’Connor, Prevention Magazine’s executive editor, appeared on fourth hour of The Today Show, with hosts Kathie-Lee and Hoda, to detail 20 of the 100 Cleanest Packaged Foods Award winners. The segment featured Silk Organic Unsweetened Soymilk and Horizon Organic Whole Milk. O’Connor praised the quality of our Silk beverage and said, “Soy milk is often chalky and high in sugar, this is neither – this is Silk, organic, nice and smooth.”

It always feels gratifying to win awards and the praise of professionals, especially when the work it involves is quality and sourcing of our products. We would like to thank Prevention Magazine, Siobhan O’Connor, The Today Show and all of the WhiteWave consumers for recognizing the love we put into our products.
