Lucky Foods Kimchi Mayo
Lucky Foods is a family-owned business founded by Korean immigrants with a passion for bringing clean, healthy Korean foods to the American market. With this product, the brand has taken a plant-based version of an American classic, mayonnaise, and kicked up the flavor with inspiration from its Korean roots. The Kimchi Mayo has the perfect amount of spice, funk and tanginess, and is certified vegan and gluten free as well as Non-GMO Project Verified.
Plant Perks Plant Based Cheeze Spreads
Plant Perks achieves its perfectly creamy plant-based cheeze spreads by incorporating MCT oil, which is also found in dairy fat. The company then ferments the spreads with French cultures for 12-16 hours, giving this cheeze the same tangy flavor as its dairy counterparts. Not only are all of the spreads delicious and satisfying, but they are certified organic, non-GMO, kosher, dairy free, gluten free, soy free, vegan, paleo and keto so this is an indulgence you can feel good about spreading on anything and everything.
Wildbrine Wild Creamery Sour Cream Alternative
Not an impeccable mimic of dairy-based sour cream, but an impeccably good alternative—and apparently (judging by the judges) a tasty dip by itself—this plant-based sour cream hit on many levels of innovation, integrity and inspiration. Part of the secret might be the use of customized cultures coming out of sister company Wildbrine, providing home-grown fermentation in place of lab-generated cultures. The list of organic kitchen-familiar ingredients and lack of starches or gums probably helps, too.
