This past week, thousands of industry professionals from the natural and organic food sector gathered at “Natural Products Expo West” to display and share their latest products. The event included familiar exhibitors from Follow Your Heart, Daiya Cheese, Tofurky, and Upton’s Naturals, and one of the most compelling exhibits came from Miyoko’s Kitchen. Miyoko’s handcrafted and aged vegan products made such an impact at the event, hosts from New Hope Network presented the company with the prestigious “Nexty” award.

Miyoko's Kitchen Nexty Award

 

 

 

As New Hope explains, the Nexty award is given to products that not only demonstrate an innovative, and progressive concept but keep societal and environmental values at the forefront of their mission. Considering these are the qualities they look for, it is no surprise that Miyoko’s Kitchen won for one of her newest debuts: European Style Cultured Vegan Butter. Several years ago, the vegan chef, author, and TV host aimed to do what many considered impossible and create artisan butter that both vegans and non-vegans could enjoy. Not only did she succeed, but she was able to reach her goal using only quality organic and plant-based ingredients while also avoiding the use of environmentally damaging ones like palm oil. Pretty impressive!

Miyoko’s European-style butter is also primarily composed of cashew nuts, a notable difference from many of her competitors that rely on soy to produce a spreadable product that resembles butter. Miyoko instead uses a mixture of organic coconut oil, organic safflower oil, and organic sunflower oil, to create the creamy and silky texture so many have become accustomed to.

Products like Miyoko’s are not only powerful because they are expanding the ever-increasing plant-based market, but they are also much-needed if we are to create a more sustainable future for the food world. In 2013, the U.S. dairy industry produced 1.86 billion pounds of butter, a statistic that will most likely stay the same if not increase. Considering the fact that dairy farms use approximately 3.4 million gallons of water every single day, this is an industry that needs to be completely transformed. With delicious and forward-thinking products like Miyoko’s, we hope that the food world will begin to see that there are smarter options out there where flavor does not have to be compromised.
