Animal-Free Whey Protein Powder Brings Kinder, Greener Options to the Global Sports Nutrition Industry
Berkeley, CA /PRNewswire/ - Perfect Day, Inc., creator of the world's first animal-free dairy protein, today announced its entrance into the sports nutrition market, bringing first-of-its-kind innovation, performance, and sustainability to this high-growth space. The launch further validates the alternative protein leader's ability to commercialize animal-free ingredients at scale with expansion into Asia and the launch of two new brands.
The introduction of this ready-to-mix (RTM) product line puts Perfect Day's hallmark ingredient front and center, bringing consumers the taste, performance, and nutrition of conventional whey protein powder but with a fraction of the environmental impact. The new category will be ushered in by flagship partner Natreve, the world's first plastic and carbon neutral wellness company, and California Performance Co., the newest brand from The Urgent Company.
"After highlighting the functionality of our protein in cream cheese, ice cream and baked goods, this new category brings its nutritional superiority to the forefront. We developed this new product line for traditional whey protein and plant-based protein consumers alike, and above all, for anyone conscious about their health and the health of our planet," said Ryan Pandya, co-founder and CEO of Perfect Day, Inc. "This is an incredibly exciting moment for Perfect Day, as our animal-free dairy ingredients find more commercially viable uses across new product categories and now new continents, as we enter three global markets in a critical step towards our vision of a more equitable, resilient, and diverse food system for all."
Natreve is Perfect Day's first partner in the category, today announcing MOOLESS, a protein powder for those looking to elevate their wellness journey with a product that offers the taste, texture, and nutrition benefits of whey protein while meeting their environmental and health ideals. The protein powder is molecularly identical to conventional whey but made through precision fermentation, delivering all of the nutritional benefits and a lower environmental footprint (made with protein that generates up to 97% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than conventional production methods). Perfect Day and Natreve came together through deeply shared values to create change through business by putting sustainability at the forefront. Their collaboration allows them to drive towards their shared goal of creating a kinder, greener tomorrow.
"Natreve is on a mission to provide wellness to everyone, inside and out. As the world's first plastic and carbon neutral wellness company, we're on a journey to become the most sustainable wellness brand on the globe. Our partnership with Perfect Day and the launch of MOOLESS allows us to provide even more options for consumers to invest in their health, while protecting the health of our planet," said Roland Radu, CEO of Natreve.
Each serving of MOOLESS contains 20 grams of protein and a full-spectrum digestive enzyme to support performance and daily wellness. It is perfect for those who care about climate change and creating a better tomorrow while simultaneously looking to fuel their daily lives. MOOLESS will be available in four delicious flavors: Vanilla Bean Cupcake, Chocolate Fudge Brownie, Cookies and Cream, and Strawberry Shortcake.
California Performance Co., helmed by Perfect Day's consumer-facing subsidiary The Urgent Company, will expand their animal-free product offerings to customers across the US, as well as internationally for the very first time, selling directly to consumers in Singapore and Hong Kong. This marks The Urgent Company and Perfect Day's first international brand launch, and includes three flavors which are lactose free, hormone free, and soy free.
