Cocojune, a startup launched by a team of self-described “fermentation nerds, food lovers, and nature enthusiasts” with backgrounds in food manufacturing and design, has launched a line of sustainably produced coconut yogurt.
The creamy offering, which imparts a mild tangy flavor, is made from certified organic, plant-based ingredients. Each 4-ounce serving delivers 30 billion CFU (colony-forming units) and includes some of the world’s most researched probiotic strains, such as Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. Lactis BB-12 and Lactobacillus acidophilus LA-5.
Cocojune is available in four flavors: Lemon Elderflower, Pure Coconut, Strawberry Rhubarb, and Vanilla Chamomile. In line with the company’s commitment to sustainability, the products are packaged in an upgraded paper-based cup with a net-zero plastic footprint.
The cocojune line is available at select retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $2.99 for a 4-ounce container and $8.99 for a 16-ounce container.
NuttZo recently made its first foray into savory spreads with NuttZo 5-Seed Tahini Fusion. The blend is a first-of-its-kind tahini-style seed butter made with organic sesame, flax, sunflower, pumpkin, and chia.
Packed with protein and nutrients, the new take on mixed nut butter contains no nuts and can be used in savory and sweet recipes, including dressings, dips, desserts, main dishes, and smoothies. 5-Seed Tahini Fusion is gluten-free, allergen-friendly, and made in a peanut-free facility.
Available at select Whole Foods, on Amazon, and online at nuttzo.com, NuttZo’s 5-Seed Tahini Fusion has a suggested retail price of $7.99. Portions of proceeds are donated to Project Left Behind, NuttZo’s sister nonprofit benefitting orphaned and underprivileged children worldwide.
Airly Foods recently debuted its first product, Airly Oat Clouds, a climate-friendly snack developed to remove greenhouse gases from the air. Made with wholesome oats and grains, the crackers are available in four varieties—Cheddar Oat Clouds, Sea Salt, Chocolate, and Salted Caramel—and contain both sweet and savory notes.
The carbon footprint of each product is displayed on the package, with each 7.5-ounce box removing between 18 grams and 21 grams of CO2 from the air, the equivalent of 2,500–2,900 beach balls filled with fresh air.
“From seed to shelf, Airly considers its impact on the environment every step of the way, using cutting-edge technology and the latest scientific innovations to support our planet’s health,” Mark Izzo, Airly co-founder and chief science officer, said in a press release. “By connecting world-leading scientists with farmers, we’re able to grow our wholesome oats on zero CO2 emission farms. Through carbon farming practices that remove CO2 from the air by sequestering it in the soil, this can make agriculture part of the solution to climate change, rather than a contributor.”
Airly Oat Clouds can be found at AirlyFoods.com and on Amazon for a suggested retail price of $4.99, including shipping costs. The snacks will also be debuting at select retailers nationwide throughout 2021 for $2.99–$3.69.
