Miyoko’s Revolutionizes Dairy With the First Ever Oat Milk Butters and 100% Plant-Based Vegan Allergen-Friendly Cheeses that Actually Taste Like Dairy
September 12th, 2019, BALTIMORE, MD — Leading plant-based dairy brand Miyoko’s Creamery, known for its award-winning vegan butter and artisan cheeses, is previewing innovative new products at the 2019 Natural Products Expo East. The new products include an unsalted version of Miyoko’s organic European Cultured Butter, the fastest growing non-dairy butter in all channels; the first ever spreadable cultured organic oat milk butter; and several new whole-food based, allergen-friendly vegan cheeses made with organic ingredients. All products will be available to the market in early 2020. In blind-taste tests, consumers could not tell the difference between Miyoko’s vegan butter and cheeses, and their dairy analogues and enjoyed melty, gooey, cheesy, plant-based goodness in every bite.
Together, this powerhouse line up of new products will reinforce Miyoko’s dominance in the non-dairy category and rival the dairy category in taste, texture, and nutrition to create an unrivaled block of cultured, whole food-based, organic, non-GMO vegan products that taste exactly like their dairy counterparts.
The radically real new products that Miyoko’s Creamery is previewing at Expo East include:
- European Style Unsalted Cultured Vegan Butter — Consumers demanded an epicurean grade, unsalted vegan butter to elevate their culinary game, and Miyoko’s delivered. This product is a true 1:1 replacement of dairy butter, allowing Food Service Chefs and home bakers to veganize any recipe with consistently phenomenal success.
- Oat Milk Butter — The first ever spreadable plant-based, cultured vegan oat milk butters are designed with both flavor and convenience in mind. These groundbreaking new products are the first of their kind to market and are available in two flavors: a classic tasting European style butter churned from naturally sweet organic oat milk, and a naturally flavored oat milk butter infused with the savory taste of garlic and parm.
- Allergen-Friendly Cheeses — A new line of nut / lactose / soy / gluten-free, kid-approved, organic, vegan Cheddar and Pepper Jack cheeses will be available in blocks, shreds, and slices, with 3 grams of protein. These incredible cheeses are made from culturing whole foods including potatoes, legumes, and oats, and rival the flavor and texture of their conventional cheese counterparts. No weird science, all derived from organic whole food, and free from all major allergens. They are ideal for everything from plant-based burgers and grilled cheese to quesadillas and nachos, at home and at school. Kids taste-tested can’t tell the difference, and parents are thrilled at the protein-rich, allergen-free clean ingredients.
The nine new products will join Miyoko’s existing line of nineteen award-winning products including European Cultured Vegan Butter and premium cheeses such as Aged Smoked Farmhouse, Double Cream Chive, Sundried Tomato Garlic and Aged Black Ash. Miyoko’s Creamery introduced fan favorite cream cheeses and spreadable Roadhouse cheeses in 2019, and continues to introduce innovative new products designed to further their mission of changing public perception of what vegan dairy can taste like by inspiring consumers to switch from animal dairy without compromising their love of cheese, and stop the trajectory of climate change.
Founded by former restaurateur, best-selling vegan cookbook author, and powerful environmental activist Miyoko Schinner, Miyoko’s Creamery crafts all of their products using only real and organic ingredients like plants, nuts and legumes. All products are made in a kitchen in Sonoma County, not a lab and never with fillers, additives, GMO ingredients, or fake anything. Miyoko’s products are better for the environment than their animal dairy analogues, producing up to 98% less greenhouse gases, making them a healthier, more ethical and environmentally responsible choice for consumers. Launched just five years ago, Miyoko's Creamery products can now be found in over 12,000 retail locations across the US, from places like Target, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, and Kroger to most natural boutique grocery stores across the country, distributed through Kehe and UNFI.
