Melt Organic, a Boise, Idaho-based plant-based food company specializing in vegan butters, says it launched a line of “Cheesy Spreadables.” The products are all vegan, Non-GMO, OU kosher and Rainforest Alliance Certified Organic; they also are top eight allergen-free. Powered by fermented plant protein, the products have 21 grams of protein per 7 ounce tub — 50% more protein per serving than the leading dairy cream cheese.
“Cheesy Spreadables” come in four flavors: Original, Queso Picante, Everything and Cool Garlic Herb, the company says. Using pea protein fermented by shitake mushroom mycelia, the gold standard for highly digestible plant-based protein, the products have improved solubility, a creamy texture and a delicious taste.
“We are excited about the expansion of our better-for-you vegan ‘cream cheese’ that tastes great and that is powered by fermented plant protein that fills you up,” says Brittney Fischer, director of brand marketing for Melt Organic. “We at Melt Organic strive to be better, and there’s no greater way to do this than by starting with what we put in our bodies.”
The products have a suggested retail price of $6.99 for a 7-ounce oz. tub and can be found at more than 120 natural food retailers nationwide, as well as on the Melt Organic website: https://meltorganic.com/.
