Nestlé unveils new pea-based milk alternative Wunda


Nestlé has announced the launch of Wunda, a new pea-based milk alternative beverage.

The drink caters to different uses, meaning one can drink it straight, pour over cereal, use in hot beverages, froth it, cook with it and much more.

“This truly versatile, delicious pea-based beverage is an excellent source of protein and fiber. Its great neutral taste, the ability to use it for different applications and the fact that it is carbon neutral make it an ideal plant-based alternative to milk,” commented Stefan Palzer, Nestlé chief technology officer.

The Wunda range includes unsweetened and chocolate versions, alongside the original recipe. The product is made from yellow peas which provide high-quality protein and are sourced in France and Belgium.

They are high in fiber, low in sugar and fat, enriched with calcium and are a source of vitamins D, B2 and B12. The original, unsweetened and chocolate recipes all achieve a Nutri-Score A in Europe.

Initially developed as part of Nestlé’s R&D Accelerator initiative, the range is carbon neutral from launch and certified by the Carbon Trust.

Set to be launched first in France, the Netherlands and Portugal, the product will be rolled out to other European markets later.
