GO Veggie! Continues “Spreading” Cheesy Joy to Millions of Americans Seeking Dairy Free and Vegan Foods

North Kingstown, Rhode Island — July 24, 2013 — GO Veggie!™ – made by America’s 30-year leading provider of delicious cheese free products, Galaxy Nutritional Foods – is proud to announce that its scrumptious Dairy Free, Vegan Cream Cheese was named Best Nondairy Cheese by Delicious Living’s inaugural Best Bite Awards.

GO Veggie! Dairy Free, Vegan Cream Cheese, which topped finalists Daiya Jalapeño Garlic Havarti and Food for Lovers Vegan Queso spreads, launched in grocery stores nationwide spring 2013 as the number of shoppers seeking dairy free and vegan options increases.

“We know millions of Americans are looking to reduce or completely eliminate dairy from their diets for allergy or health reasons and don’t want to give up the cheesy foods they love,” said Jamie Schapiro, Marketing Director, GO Veggie! “We’re honored Delicious Living named GO Veggie! Best Nondairy Cheese, and we’re happy to meet a growing consumer demand with our tasty dairy free, vegan cream cheeses. We recommend slathering the strawberry flavor on a bagel or inside vegan French toast!”

As luxurious and smooth as real cream cheese and easily added to any recipe, this vegan spread has fewer calories and fat than dairy-based options. The cream cheese is part of the purple GO Veggie! Dairy Free, Vegan line, which includes products that are all casein, cholesterol and trans fat free, and do not contain hydrogenated oils or other disapproving ingredients such as titanium dioxide or GMOs. GO Veggie! Dairy Free, Vegan Cream Cheese is available at retailers nationwide in Chive & Garlic, Classic Plain, and Strawberry flavors.

For anyone who has a dairy allergy, is following a vegan lifestyle, or is simply trying to cut back on cholesterol, GO Veggie! allows them to enjoy the cheesy foods they love. GO Veggie! product lines are clearly distinguished through distinct packaging color and transparent product benefit statements so consumers can easily determine the cheesy choice that is right for them.
