July 9, 2018, 9:15 am

Award-winning brand Nush, which produces the UK’s first dairy-free, soya-free, nut milk yoghurt, has entered the UK cheese category with the launch of a line of vegan Spreadable Cheese.

The UK’s first dairy-free cheese made from almond milk, Nush Spreadable Ch*ese is available in two SKUs, Natural and Chive, with an RRP of £2.75 per 150g tub.

This new range will allow the brand to enter the £2.8 billion cheese category. Soft white cheese is the fourth most popular cheese on the market and is worth £228.5 million1 in sales alone.

The cheese is made from the finest almond milk and contains 30% pure almonds. It is designed to be enjoyed as a direct replacement for dairy and can be used in a multitude of ways, whether it’s spread on an oatcake or used for creating dishes in the kitchen.

Each tub is all-natural, comprised of whole ingredients and free from gluten, soya, preservatives and additives. The cheese is created by blending the best quality Sicilian almonds with filtered water and vegan probiotic cultures and is then seasoned with British sea salt.

Bethany Eaton, Co-Founder of Nush says: “Nush is a category innovator and so we are really excited to launch the UK’s first live vegan almond milk cheese. There is growing demand for dairy-free cheese and through our new range, British consumers can now enjoy a delicious vegan offering that contains 30% pure almonds. It is ideal for a multitude of culinary occasions, whether filling sandwiches or creating dishes in the kitchen.”

Each 150g pot contains 60 Sicilian almonds and is produced using artisan methods on premises in South England. Protein-rich, Nush Spreadable Ch*ese is satiating and is fortified with live probiotic cultures, which are aged with the almond milk during the production process, supporting gut health.

Designed to have in the fridge as a culinary staple to be enjoyed throughout the week for a number of eating occasions, Nush Spreadable Ch*ese is a tasty lunchtime sandwich filler and is also ideal to serve with a jacket potato, or spread on a bagel with sliced banana or fresh berries for breakfast. For the ultimate quick and nutritious canapé when entertaining, it pairs perfectly with vegetable crudities.

The delicate flavour profile and creamy texture makes it a versatile cooking ingredient. It can be used to create sweet and savoury dishes, including sauces, dips, pancakes, soups, cheesecakes and cake frosting.

The Nush Spreadable Ch*ese range is available at Whole Foods Market and is sold in a 150g tub with an RRP of £2.75.

This new variety is the latest addition to the Nush family of products, which includes a range of almond milk yoghurts, dairy-free almond yoghurt tubes and cashew milk yoghurts.
