In some departments, such as Refrigerated Foods, finding organic can be a challenge when it comes to catering to specialty diets. We know that many of you rely on vegan meat alternatives, or sheep and goat based dairy products, and so we carry them, despite the fact that certified organic options are not readily available in those categories.
Luckily for our dairy-free probiotic lovers, there are some great companies prioritizing organic certification for their vegan yogurt alternatives. One of our favorites is Forager Project Cashewgurts.
As the name would suggest, this revolutionary product is made with pure, certified organic cashew milk. When the cashew milk is combined with live active cultures, “cashewgurt” is born!
Forager Project is dedicated to using 100% certified organic ingredients in everything they make. The creators believe that the way our food is cultivated will have a lasting impact on the planet, and the people that live upon it.
Not only is it better for the environment, but Forager Project’s “Cashewgurt” taste is also very similar to traditional cow’s milk yogurt.
The creamy texture and subtle flavor of cashew milk blends perfectly into smoothies and other dishes, though it can also be enjoyed simply on its own. Try pairing this delicious concoction with your favorite granola, or take a sip of Drinkable Cashewgurt for a dose of live probiotic cultures on the go! In addition to being Certified Organic, Forager Project “Cashewgurt” is also free of gluten, soy, lactose, and GMOs.
In terms of traditional dairy, we love grass-fed and are committed to featuring it. We are able to source most standard dairy products from companies that use organic, grass-fed milk. This includes everything from milk and butter, to cheese, yogurt and even kefir. Some of our favorite companies providing grass-fed products are Maple Hill Creamery, Organic Pastures & Organic Valley.
Maple Hill Creamery is a prime example of excellent management of a grass-fed dairy.
They carefully rotate their cows on the pastures and grow and store their own hay and baleage (two different methods of storing cut grass) to keep the cows on a grass-fed diet during the fall and winter months.
