Miyoko’s Creamery, the leading plant dairy brand known for its award-winning vegan cheeses and butter crafted from 100% plants, is introducing a game-changing new cheddar and pepper jack cheese, in addition to a new spreadable oat milk butter. In consumer tastings the new cheeses meet or beat cow dairy in taste and performance. The first of these products will begin hitting grocery store shelves across the country this spring.
The cheddar and pepper jack cheese will be the first in a new line of everyday cheeses from Miyoko’s, which has become known for its unmatched artisan cheese wheels. Made using cultured legumes and oats, the new cheddar and pepper jack cheeses will be Miyoko’s first nut-free vegan cheese options. Additionally, they will be priced competitively with similar organic cow-dairy, offering a true plant-based replacement.
Miyoko’s new cheddar & pepper jack cheeses taste, melt and function similar to their dairy counterparts and so can be used in the same way as dairy cheeses, including in grilled cheese sandwiches, quesadillas, macaroni and cheese, and in any other recipes that call for traditional cheddar or pepper jack. Additionally, the cheeses have three grams of protein per one-ounce serving, 10% of the daily recommended amount of calcium, and have the added benefit of also being cholesterol-free.
Miyoko’s Cheddar and Pepper Jack launch on grocery store shelves this March 2020, and will be available in three formats: 1 oz slices, shredded packages and 8 oz cheese blocks. Miyoko’s spreadable oat milk butters hit grocery store shelves this April 2020. The classic Hint of Salt flavor is available in 12 oz tubs, while the Garlic Parm is available in 7 oz tubs.
