SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Bolthouse Farms MAIO™, a new line of refrigerated, yogurt-based spreads made with clean ingredients, hits grocery shelves beginning February in Northern California Safeway stores. The MAIO spreads are available in three craveable flavors – Plain, Chipotle and Garlic – and have the same creamy, rich texture people seek in a traditional mayonnaise but with lower fat and calories. Each product in the line contains only 20 calories and 1 gram of fat per serving, and most importantly, delivers on taste.
"The popularity of traditional mayo has remained flat over recent years as consumers have steadily turned to alternative options, but they aren't always satisfied with what they can find on shelf1," says Suzanne Ginestro, General Manager, C-Fresh Innovation. "People like mayonnaise for the rich flavor and creamy texture, but are hesitant to indulge because of the calorie and fat content. Our new line of MAIO offers consumers a guiltless, better-for-you, creamy option without the sacrifice."
The MAIO spreads are non-GMO, gluten free, contain no artificial flavors, have 0 grams trans-fat, and are available in 268 Northern California Safeway stores in 8 oz. bottles with a suggested retail price of $2.99. The spreads can be found in the refrigerated produce section next to the Bolthouse Farms® dressings in the following flavors:
MAIO is a delicious and better-for-you alternative that can enhance a variety of culinary creations including sandwiches, wraps, potato salads, dips and more.
Branded under the Bolthouse Farms name, the MAIO spreads were crafted by the innovation arm of C-Fresh (Campbell Fresh), a division of the Campbell Soup Company. Leading new product ideation and development, the innovation team is focused on building new product platforms across fast-growing, fresh-refrigerated categories.
