Dairy-Free. As It Should Be. Ripple is a nutritious plant-based milk that is high in protein, low in sugar, and delicious. With eight times the protein of almond milk and half the sugar of milk, Ripple’s creamy, smooth flavor is perfect for people who believe nourishing the body is the first step to nourishing the soul. Ripple is 100% natural and vegan — free of soy, lactose, dairy, gluten, GMOs, and carrageenans. Ripple is currently available in original, unsweetened original, vanilla, and chocolate milk varieties.
At Ripple, we believe that little changes can add up to big results. Whether you’re trying to get a little more protein, eat less sugar, or leave a lighter footprint on the Earth, it’s the things you do every day that matter most, and that create a ripple effect on your health and the health of our world.

Having just launched in the US in 2016, we still have a lot of work to do here in North America before we can focus on international expansion, but it is certainly a goal of ours to bring Ripple to other regions of the world in the future.
You can find Ripple milk in the refrigerated section alongside other dairy milk alternatives.

Ripple goes through roughly the same process as dairy, nut, and soy milks. Yellow 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 to keep you healthy with every serving.
Yellow peas comprise 25% of every Ripple serving. With a ratio of roughly one cup (eight ounces) of peas to every quart of milk, Ripple is jam-packed with the protein, calcium, and other vital nutrients essential to a healthy diet. Along with pea protein, Ripple contains sunflower oil, organic cane sugar (in all but the Unsweetened flavor), and water. Ripple also contains less than 0.5% of Vitamin A Palmitate, Vitamin D2, DHA Algal Oil, Calcium Phosphate, Potassium Phosphate, Sunflower Lecithin, Natural Flavors, Sea Salt, Organic Guar Gum, and Gellan Gum. Ripple is 100% natural and vegan — free of soy, lactose, dairy, gluten, GMOs, and carrageenans.
Ripple uses split yellow peas for our milk. Peas are best grown in cold weather climates that have a lot of natural rainfall, so they need little or no irrigation. Ripple’s peas are sourced from the U.S. Midwest and Canada. 100% of our peas are grown in North America.
Ripple milk is not currently certified organic but it’s a goal of ours for the future. Ripple uses organic sunflower oil, organic cane sugar, and organic compliant ingredients. Ripple’s peas are not currently certified organic, but we are working on sourcing an organic supply for our peas. Ripple is certified non-GMO.
All ingredients in Ripple are certified GMO-free.

Ripple’s refrigerated products will stay fresh in your refrigerator until the date printed on the bottle. Once opened, they need to be consumed within 7-10 days. It is not unusual for Ripple to remain good past the 10-day mark, however, we only guarantee that they will be good for 7-10 days once opened.
We don’t recommend it. Although freezing does not affect their safety or nutritional value, Ripple products could change in texture once thawed. However, Ripple works great in frozen dessert recipes!
Ripple bottles are made from 100% post-consumer PET plastic which has a 70% lower carbon footprint than virgin plastic and is far more recyclable than cartons. PET is one of the most recycled materials in the US, and 99% of households have access to PET recycling (while only roughly 55% of households have access to carton recycling). Why not glass you may ask? Glass actually has a higher carbon footprint than these PET bottles. Glass blowing takes a lot of energy and it takes much more fuel to distribute it because it’s heavy.
Absolutely. In fact, it’s far more recyclable than the cartons that most other non-dairy beverages are packaged in. Ripple bottles are made from 100% post-consumer PET plastic. PET is one of the most recycled materials in the US, and 99% of households have access to PET recycling, while only roughly 55% of households have access to carton recycling. Ripple product caps are #5 plastic, polypropylene, for recycling purposes.
>Creamy and smooth in flavor, Ripple is delicious consumed on its own, in cereal, in your coffee or tea, and as a replacement for dairy, soy, or nut milks in cooking. Ripple is also great for cooking, and you can use exactly the same amount of Ripple in recipes as dairy milk. Ripple is also a healthy high in protein, low in sugar option for kids (and adults!) who appreciate a tall glass of milk with their cookies.
Ripple is great it coffee! It gives coffee much more creaminess than other non-dairy milks because if it’s rich, full body. In most types of coffee Ripple won’t separate, and will blend in smoothly. Some instant coffees and artisan coffees are highly acidic, which can cause Ripple to separate. Try using just a little more Ripple in these types of coffee for a smooth mixture.
Ripple foams better than any other non-dairy milk product. It will more stable foam in lattes and cappuccinos than almond, soy, coconut, or cashew milks.
At Ripple we believe that the recipe for healthy living is actually really simple.
We don’t claim that making plant-based foods will save the world... but we think it can help. And we know it makes us happier and healthier.
