BELLEVUE, WASH. – GOOD PLANeT Foods’ line of cheeses now includes two options in wheel form.
The plant-based company announced its new Real Smoked Cheddar and Real Smoked Gouda Plant-Based Cheese Wheels will debut at the upcoming Natural Products Expo West, in Anaheim, Calif., from March 8-12.
Like GOOD PLANeT’s other cheeses, the smoked wheels are comprised of allergen-free ingredients. The process for making the cheeses involves smoking them for hours with applewood chips, a first within the plant-based cheese market.
"We are committed to expanding the plant-based cheese segment by pushing the envelope and offering consumers new ways to enjoy allergen-free, dairy-free cheese," said GOOD PLANeT co-chief executive officer Bart Adlam. "With our new smoked wheels, we are doing just that. These naturally smoked offerings will bring the joy of cheese to consumers who are vegan, flexitarian or just trying to make a small step towards a healthier diet and planet."
The new wheels have a retail price of $5.99 and soon will be available at United States retailers, as well as online at the GOOD PLANeT website.
The company's plant-based cheeses are produced with coconut oil, plant starches and proteins. They are vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, lactose-free, allergen-free, Non-GMO and keto-certified.
