Nature’s Fynd Dairy-Free Cream Cheese Now Available at Sprouts Farmers Market Nationwide
Healthy grocer to offer both Original and Chive & Onion flavors
CHICAGO, Oct. 12, 2022 — Nature’s Fynd, a food company making meat and dairy alternatives with Fy™, a nutritional fungi protein, announced today that its Dairy-Free Cream Cheese tubs are now available nationally at Sprouts Farmers Market. Fy Protein™ is grown from a microbe with origins in the geothermal springs of Yellowstone National Park using the brand’s breakthrough fermentation process. The cream cheese is vegan, nut-free, and soy-free and has no artificial flavors or preservatives.
“Consumers’ positive response to our Fy-based Dairy-Free Cream Cheese has exceeded our expectations,” said Thomas Jonas, CEO and Co-Founder of Nature’s Fynd. “Our vegan cream cheese delivers all the creamy texture and the delicious tang of dairy cream cheese while being gentler on the planet. Now with our national launch at Sprouts, one of the fastest growing specialty retailers, more consumers across the United States will be able to enjoy our delicious, sustainable Dairy-Free Cream Cheese.”
Fy is grown using Nature’s Fynd’s proprietary fermentation technology, which is more resource-efficient and sustainable than traditional protein production. Thanks to the natural resilience and efficiency of the microbe, Fy grows using a fraction of the water, land, and energy compared to animal protein sources at scale. The Dairy-Free Cream Cheese’s taste and spreadability compare to traditional cream cheese and can be substituted in most recipes calling for the creamy ingredient.
The 8‑ounce tubs in both Original and Chive & Onion flavors have a retail price of $4.99 and are located in the refrigerated sections of Sprouts stores.
