Boulder, CO (PRWEB) June 09, 2011
Earth Balance®, a line of deliciously all-natural buttery spreads, shortenings, nut butters and soymilk introduces its new Organic Coconut Spread and MindfulMayo™ Dressing and Sandwich Spread nationwide. The Organic Coconut Spread will be available exclusively at Whole Foods Market.
“Whole Foods Market is the leading retailer of Earth Balance’s all-natural and organic products, so we are proud to provide our guests with the new Organic Coconut Spread and MindfulMayo™ Dressing and Sandwich Spread,” said Errol Schweizer, Whole Foods Market’s senior global grocery coordinator. “The Earth Balance brand already has a loyal following among Whole Food Market consumers, and these two new items will appeal to folks who enjoy a plant-based diet and/or who have food allergy sensitivities.”
First of its kind, the new Earth Balance® Organic Coconut Spread offers a convenient, affordable way to incorporate coconut oil into the diet. In line with burgeoning coconut oil trend, this innovative product is made from a similar formula to the great-tasting Earth Balance buttery spread, with organic extra virgin coconut oil replacing soybean oil. Soy-free and vegan, the Earth Balance® Organic Coconut Spread is the perfect butter replacement for baking and cooking, and is a delicious addition to toast, steamed vegetables, Thai curry dishes and more. This product is organic, verified by the Non-GMO Project, and is more affordable than shelf stable coconut oil.
Earth Balance® MindfulMayo™ Dressing and Sandwich Spread is the perfect addition to the plant-based pantry. This refrigerated condiment is cholesterol-free, egg-free and dairy-free. Verified by the Non-GMO Project, the new Earth Balance® MindfulMayo™ Dressing and Sandwich Spread is available in Original, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and Organic. The new Earth Balance® MindfulMayo™ Dressing and Sandwich Spread is great in recipes, on sandwiches and as an alternative replacement in any food that uses regular mayonnaise.
“At Earth Balance, we are leading the plant based diet trend and committed to providing high-quality organic products that are free of genetically modified ingredients,” said Earth Balance Vice President General Manager, TJ McIntyre. “The new Earth Balance® Organic Coconut Spread and MindfulMayo™ Dressing and Sandwich Spread demonstrate the brand’s dedication to alternative options, and offer allergy-sensitive and health conscious consumers a delicious way to enjoy their favorite foods while following a plant-based diet.”
The new Organic Coconut Spread and MindfulMayo™ Dressing and Sandwich Spread join the existing line of Earth Balance® products that are produced using a unique, nutritionally beneficial blend of ingredients. From delicious butter alternatives, to sweet nut butters, organic soymilk, creamy coconut spread and alternative mayo, every Earth Balance® product is made with natural and organic ingredients and contains important Omega 3s. They are also vegan, non-GMO, free of trans-fats, hydrogenated oils, and artificial ingredients of any kind.
Earth Balance® products are available nationally at Whole Foods Market, regionally at City Market, Fred Meyer, Henry’s, King Soopers, Publix, QFC, Safeway, Trader Joe’s and Wegmans, as well as in local natural and specialty stores across the U.S.
