DALLAS, July 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In May 2015, Dean Foods Company (NYSE: DF) transformed the dairy category by introducing DairyPure brand milk, the country's first national branded fresh white milk. This year, DairyPure is proud to support MilkPEP's national Milk Life® campaign that's helping power Team USA's journey to the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
DairyPure milk – and newly launched DairyPure Lactose Free milk – provides at least seven essential nutrients, including two B vitamins, which have been linked to increased energy, and vitamin A, which has been linked to maintaining a healthy immune system.* Plus, every eight-ounce glass of DairyPure milk delivers eight grams of natural protein. With its numerous nutritive benefits, it's no surprise that a recent survey confirmed that nine out of 10 U.S. Olympians grew up drinking milk.**
"Milk is a nutrient powerhouse, and we feel great knowing that DairyPure milk is building champions and helping fuel Team USA athletes," said Greg Schwarz, Vice President of Marketing, Dean Foods. "Backed by our exclusive Five-Point Purity Promise®, athletes and consumers alike can feel confident about making DairyPure milk part of their daily routines."
The only farm-to-fridge milk backed by an exclusive Five-Point Purity Promise®, DairyPure products contain no artificial growth hormones,*** are tested for antibiotics, are continually quality tested to ensure purity, only come from cows fed a healthy diet and are cold-shipped from your trusted dairy.
Leading up to and during the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, through MilkPEP's sponsorship, DairyPure white milk bottles will also proudly display the Milk Life U.S. Olympic logo. And to further demonstrate DairyPure's commitment to building champions, from now until August 31, 2016, fans can text DAIRYPURE to the number found on package to enter for a chance to win a trip to the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, CO plus weekly Milk Life/Team USA-themed prizes.****
