(Newser) – A new alternative to cow milk comes from a source you wouldn’t expect: peas. Ripple Foods is about to roll out the product nationally, first at Whole Foods and then at Target, reports VegNews.com. “It’s creamy, sweet, and—don’t worry—tastes nothing like peas,” says a post at Co.Exist. The idea is attracting plenty of buzz because of a slew of positives, the notable one being that the drink has 8 grams of protein per serving, the same amount as milk from cows and eight times the amount of almond milk. “As many non-dairy beverages lack protein, this fact alone may draw consumers,” observes a post at Berkeleyside.com. It also has 50% more calcium than dairy milk, and a much smaller carbon footprint than either dairy or almond milk.
