The line of Alpina Café Selections – different than anything that can be found on the market today — uses real Colombian coffee and not “coffee flavoring” found in the dairy aisle. An excellent source of calcium Café Selections also includes protein and caffeine and, at only 120 calories per cup, they provide a great option for breakfast or afternoon snack break.
“Thirty-four percent of Americans drinks coffee, higher than soda consumption. Specialty coffee makes up a large percentage of this growth which is why we decided to launch Alpina Café Selections,” stated said Gustavo Badino, Alpina Foods’ general manager. “We are always looking to innovate in the dairy aisle. Once we found a recipe that tasted just like the consumer’s favorite flavor and were able to include actual Colombian coffee, we knew we had a unique product the consumer would want and enjoy.”
An alternative to sugary snacks and drinks, Alpina Café Selections are high in protein (12 grams) and calcium (20%), have 0 grams of fat, and provide 30-50 mg of caffeine (the equivalent to about half a cup of coffee) – perfect choice to help power anyone through their day.
