Perfect Day creates frozen dessert made with animal-free ’dairy‘ proteins
The company uses a fermentation process to produce the proteins found in cow’s milk.
Perfect Day, Emeryville, Calif., announced the launch of a limited-edition frozen dessert line. The offerings are made with the Perfect Day “dairy” protein combination, which is vegan, lactose-free and hormone-free and has the same nutritious proteins (casein and whey) found in cow’s milk. The protein combination is created through a fermentation process similar to what used in the manufacture of vitamins and amino acids.
Perfect Day said it will be offering a bundle containing the three flavors of the frozen dairy dessert: Milky Chocolate, Vanilla Salted Fudge and Vanilla Blackberry Toffee.
Since 2014, Perfect Day has been developing and scaling a method for producing functional, nutritious proteins using fermentation of microflora. According to the company, this limited release gives consumers a chance to taste the world’s first animal-free “dairy” products while demonstrating the potential of this technology to prospective collaborators.
“What we’re doing here is completely new to the world,” said Ryan Pandya, CEO and co-founder of
Perfect Day. “We wanted our first debut to be under the care of our own brand so that we could demonstrate the consumer benefits inherent to our protein while starting a conversation about this new approach to making food.”
Perfect Day said it sees the future of the industry as a bright one, and plans to work with companies large and small around the world that can create delicious food products using this protein.
“Our goal has always been impact — to pave the way for a kinder, greener planet,” said Perumal Gandhi, co-founder of Perfect Day. “The best way to achieve this will be to work with food companies that already purchase huge amounts of dairy ingredients. While our B2B deals come to fruition, we are eager to share our progress with the world.”
The three-flavor bundles are available for purchase at perfectdayfoods.com while supplies last for $60 plus shipping and handling.
