PLANT-BASED MILK PRODUCTS - LIKE MILK BUT MADE OF PEAS
We are Swedish, we believe that coming together makes for a better world. Sproud is the next level of plant-based products bringing taste and sustainability together. With a natural creamy texture and neutral taste, our planet-first family of products bring you dairy-free milk alternatives with the closest taste to regular milk.
Sproud is the non-dairy alternative that blends with the food and drinks you love. Creamy and foamy in coffee, perfect in tea, in smoothies and on cereals. Our plant-based milk is just like dairy milk. Powered by peas and developed in Sweden using the yellow split pea protein, we have one mission: to be the best tasting plant-based and non-dairy milk you could ever experience.
BASED MILK MADE FROM YELLOW SPLIT PEAS
Our mission is to deliver a family of plant-based, vegan products with the closest taste to regular milk and the lowest carbon footprint possible.
That’s why we chose the extraordinary yellow split pea. Our perfect pea is one of the most sustainable plant-based protein sources, as it requires less water than almond or oat and is allergen and gluten free.
Our creamy texture and neutral taste ensures you can use our plant-based milk as you would use milk in coffee, with a cup of tea, and even on your cereal, all without the aftertaste that other plant-based milks can give.
All our Sproud plant milk products have been formulated by very clever scientists to be shelf-stable, taking out the need for unsustainable chilled distribution. We are also reducing wastage as our tasty non-dairy products have a 365-day shelf life.
Along with taste and sustainability, we believe nutrition makes a great combination for a fantastic product. Finding a healthy balance is an important way to promote a better well being and Sproud’s vegan, pea protein products is a great compliment to a nutritious diet.
Recently our plant based products have been officially certified by SugarWise, an organization dedicated to maximizing the availability and visibility of sugar and carbohydrate conscious products. Sproud is the first dairy free alternative to obtain this certification and is a really exciting step for us as a company.
SugarWise was founded in 2015 by Rend Planting, and has now certified 500 brands across a multitude of countries. Not only that but SugarWise strives to make a difference through a variety of educational initiatives and campaigns such as the #DontTaxHealthy movement.
We at Sproud are wholeheartedly in support of the great work Rend and the rest of the SugarWise team are doing and look forward to working together to build a healthier future.
OUR PEA MILK COMPARED TO OTHER MILK ALTERNATIVES
IS SECOND TO NONE
The demand for eco-conscious food seems to be growing day by day. And looking at several sustainability factors, our pea milk substitute is a strong competitor to other options. Especially compared to regular cow’s milk. For example, our yellow split peas require very little water and land compared to similar crops. And the peas actually replenish the soil they grow on.
So it is very sustainable, now let us move on to taste. Because flavour, texture and colour are common problems with vegan milk substitutes. Mimicking milk is not easy! But Sproud’s drinks come out on top in taste experience compared to other alternatives. There is no weird aftertaste and no peculiar texture. Just a clean, neutral flavour in a drink that can be used basically like cow’s milk.
Nutritionally speaking, Sproud’s pea protein fuels our drinks with plenty of protein, while the carb content is low and fat content moderate. Our substitute for milk is a great option if you are lactose intolerant. It also contains no gluten, no dairy and no soy. Sproud’s drinks also contain important vitamins and minerals such as vitamin D, vitamin B12, riboflavin and calcium. Some other plant-based milk options do not.
- Requires significantly larger amounts of water and land than our pea alternative
- Not an option for those allergic to soy.
- Demands much more water and land than peas
- In many cases low in protein
- Not fit for certain allergies.
- Typically not high in protein
- Contains lactose and dairy
- Requires cattle and much more water and land – which is less climate-friendly
- Has to be refrigerated
- Typically low protein content compared to Sproud
NEED INSPIRATION FOR RECIPES?
As a rule of thumb, you can swap cow’s milk for Sproud’s vegan drinks in most recipes. Hot or cold, in sweet and savoury dishes. But sometimes we all need some inspiration in the kitchen! That is why we have gathered tons of delicious recipes made with products from Sproud. Check out our recipe collection.
FROM SWEDEN WITH LOVE - AND PRODUCED IN NORTH AMERICA
While Sproud is a Swedish business, we wanted to keep production relatively local for you Americans. That is why Sproud products that are distributed in North America are made in Canada from Canadian-grown yellow split peas.
The products we distribute in Europe are made in Sweden from peas grown in France.
So, Sproud is produced relatively locally from an eco-friendly protein source. But what else have we done for the environment?
Well, as packaging for drinks we have chosen recyclable Tetra Pak, made from lightweight materials. Unopened packs of Sproud drinks have a 365-day shelf life, without need for refrigeration. Opened packs last for up to 7 days in the fridge.

AND HERE ARE SOME FREQUENT QUESTIONS
WHAT IS PLANT-BASED MILK?
Plant milk is basically a collective term for all milk alternatives that are made from plants, as opposed to dairy milk which comes from cows. Drinks from Sproud are examples of these vegan alternatives, as they’re made from yellow split pea protein. And they just might be the best-tasting, most eco-friendly and nutritious plant-based and vegan milk options on the market.
HOW LONG DO SPROUD'S PLANT-BASED PRODUCTS STAY FRESH?
Unopened packages of Sproud drinks keep fresh unrefrigerated for up to 365 days. Opened packs can be kept in the fridge for up to 7 days.
I WANT TO HEAT UP SPROUD'S PRODUCTS. IS THAT OK?
More than OK! Sproud drinks are great in hot chocolate, baking, stews and other hot recipes. The texture, taste and colour will be very similar to cow’s milk for a non-dairy option. Our protein powders can also be mixed with warm liquids (such as oatmeal) and used in baking.
IS SPROUD'S PACKAGING RECYCLABLE?
Yes, our environmentally friendly Tetra Pak packaging can be recycled. Check locally for details on how to do so.

ARE SPROUD PRODUCTS REALLY 100% VEGAN?

I DO NOT WANT TO ORDER A FULL CASE - I WANT TO BUY INDIVIDUAL PACKAGES. IS THAT POSSIBLE?
It depends on where you buy our plant milk substitute. We suggest you check with your local retailer. Feel free to use our Sproud Locator to find one near you.
DO THE PRODUCTS USE HEALTHY FATS?
The fat in Sproud vegetable milk drinks is almost entirely unsaturated. Many of us tend to get too much saturated fat through our diet. So swapping some of it for unsaturated fat can be a good idea. Most of the fat in our drinks come from canola oil and gluten free oat oil.
SURELY YOU USE SWEETENERS IN YOUR PRODUCTS? ARE THEY VEGAN?
Yes, all our products are vegan, even though many of them are sweetened. We use sweeteners such as agave syrup and coconut sugar.
ARE SPROUD'S PRODUCTS NON-GMO PROJECT VERIFIED?
Sproud Barista, Sproud Chocolate, Sproud Original and Sproud Unsweetened are certified by the Non-GMO Project.
WHERE DO YOU PRODUCE YOUR PRODUCTS?
The vegetable milks and other products that we distribute in North America are made in Canada from Canadian-grown peas. The products that we distribute in Europe are made in Europe.
WHAT COLOUR IS PLANT-BASED MILK?
Some plant-based vegan milks can look a bit different from cow’s milk, but Sproud looks remarkably similar. Our drinks are white in colour and creamy in texture.
CAN YOU BAKE WITH PLANT-BASED MILK?
With Sproud you certainly can! Expect similar results to when you use cow’s milk.
HOW HEALTHY IS PLANT-BASED MILK?
That depends on what plant-based milk option you choose. Our own Sproud milk substitutes are low-carb and high in protein, with moderate amounts of fats. They are also enriched with vitamins and minerals. If you are looking for an entirely sugar-free option, Sproud Unsweetened manages to maintain great flavour without any sugar.
