VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Fans asked for it and the leader and creator of deliciously dairy-free products is delivering! As a result of consumer requests for products that are 'cheezier than ever', Daiya Foods today announced the company has made significant enhancements to its existing line of Blocks. These new and improved "Farmhouse Blocks" serve up a tasty, plant-based alternative to deliver an amplified creamy taste and texture—any way you slice it. In fact, they're so similar to dairy-based cheese, that you might not notice the difference.
"We are continually enhancing our products to offer the better nutrition that today's mindful consumers crave, while also ensuring the taste and texture of Daiya's foods remains a cut above the rest," said Michael Lynch, Daiya vice president of marketing. "With an ever increasing number of people understanding the benefits of a plant-based diet, we've naturally continued to innovate and are proud to have developed our best-tasting line of Blocks yet. We are so excited with this new formulation and the reception from our consumers—it's flying off the shelves!"
Unlike other dairy-free cheeses on the market, Daiya's plant-based creations offer exceptional flavor while mirroring the same stretchy, melty, and gooey qualities of dairy-based cheese. Made with a signature blend featuring tapioca and pea protein, Daiya Farmhouse Blocks offer improved buttery and milky flavors and a perfected, savory yet firmer texture that can be enjoyed as is or incorporated to make better-for-you versions of any favorite recipe, like grilled cheese, nachos, pizza, queso dip, and so much more.
Daiya's Farmhouse Blocks are a good source of calcium with one serving accounting for 10% of the recommended dietary allowance. Like all Daiya foods, the new cheezes are free of the three most common allergens – dairy, gluten, and soy – and contains zero animal products, cholesterol, trans fats or preservatives per serving. Additionally, as part of Daiya's ongoing commitment to the planet, the company reduced the materials used in its Farmhouse Blocks packaging by 65 percent.
"Whether you're dairy-intolerant, allergic, vegan, or simply living a healthy lifestyle, we believe our new Farmhouse Blocks will satisfy your cheese cravings without compromise," adds Lynch.
Daiya's swap-worthy Farmhouse Blocks ($4.99) are available in four artisanal varieties: Smoked Gouda Style, Jalapeno Havarti Style, Medium Cheddar Style, and Monterey Jack Style. For more information or to locate a store near you, visit www.daiyafoods.com.
