Leading a healthy lifestyle is no longer a foreign concept for most Sri Lankans as people become more aware of health issues that arise from unhealthy daily practices. No longer do we rely on junk food, while exercise is not just for youngsters anymore. With more awareness is being created on balanced diets and healthy living, there is definitely more demand for products that are healthy and enhance people’s lives.

Pelwatte Dairy Industries Ltd. is a name synonymous with high-quality locally produced dairy products that are both nutritional and affordable. Adding to their portfolio of milk powder, yoghurt, salted and unsalted butter and a variety of ice cream flavours, the dairy producer’s latest entrant is non-fat milk powder which will no doubt be well-received by a growing health conscious population. 

“A product such as milk powder is a staple product in every household and there is now a huge window in the market for healthy alternatives. Pelwatte Dairy, having identified this need, will be catering to the growing demand for non-fat milk powder,” says Pelwatte Dairy Director Marketing Akmal Wickramanayake.

Non-fat milk powders differ from the average full cream milk powders since the fat is extracted from the milk during the production process. The nutritional value of the product is remarkable. The non-fat milk powder is very dense in nutrients and it will help users indulge in a cup of guilt-free coffee or tea whenever they feel like it. The new non-fat milk will also help to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease by eliminating risk factors such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels. 

The product will soon be distributed island-wide and will be available at select supermarkets and groceries.
