Slate launched ultra-filtered chocolate milk for adults, which is also lactose-free. The product is shelf-stable, as each of the cans undergoes a retort process. Manny Lubin, a co-founder of the company, spoke about how the beverage can cater to adult consumers, "It's known as a kids' drink that's high in sugar in a carton, but if we can reposition it as a functional beverage that's high in protein and tastes great, we think we can bring it to an entirely new audience."
Slate's ultra-filtered chocolate milk is sourced from 30 different dairy farms in the upstate New York area, this is done in order to concentrate the protein in the beverage, as well as remove lactose and milk sugar form the product. Due to the way the product is made, Slate chocolate milk contains 50% more protein and 75% lower sugar than most of the chocolate milk products currently on the market.
