Ripple



COW, GOAT, SOY, nut, rice, even hemp. In today’s world, it seems like milk can come from just about anywhere — and now there’s yet another option in the dairy aisle. Made with yellow peas, Ripple has eight times the protein of almond milk and half the sugar of conventional dairy milk. Unlike many other alternatives, it’s smooth and creamy, not watery.

PHILOSOPHY One hundred percent natural and vegan, Ripple is free of soy, lactose, dairy, gluten, GMOs and thickeners like carrageenans. Currently available in original, unsweetened original, vanilla and chocolate milk varieties, it has eight grams of protein and contains more calcium and 40 percent fewer calories than whole dairy milk.

THE SCOOP Mill Valley resident Adam Lowry, co-founder of Method cleaning products, co-founded Ripple Foods with biotech innovator Neil Renninger to help bring about a healthier, more sustainable food and agriculture industry. “What motivates me is how to use business to promote social causes and make a positive environmental impact,” Lowry says. The peas are blended with water and sunflower oil and (in all but the unsweetened variety) lightly sweetened with organic cane sugar. Vitamin D and other nutrients are added following homogenization and sterilization. The production of Ripple has a smaller carbon footprint than traditional milk, and the product is packaged in 100 percent post-consumer recycled plastic containers, which have a 75–80 percent lower carbon footprint that than that of standard milk cartons.

BEYOND MARIN Ripple is available at Target, Whole Foods and Sprouts stores nationwide.

WHAT THEY SAY “After 16 years with Method I started to get an itch to build another business and thought about my passions,” Lowry says. “I realized that food was the answer — it was a lot more personal than other products and the potential ripple effect and power of working with food was huge.” ripplefoods.com
