There are few things I can’t live without, but parmesan cheese is definitely one of them. I applaud my vegan friends who have the discipline to give it up, but that’s no longer necessary, as Sister River Foods’ new brand Parma! transforms the vegan cheese category.
“Parma! gives you that cheesy flavor without all the dairy baggage. It provides an excellent food source of high-quality vitamins and minerals, including B vitamins, omega 3’s, and trace minerals, along with the natural goodness of hemp, and it tastes great,” said Sister River Foods Founder Shannon Schnibbe. “We’re deeply grateful for the exceptionally warm reception our brand has received from consumers and industry leaders since our very first days on the market and look forward to continuing to shake up the dairy-free industry for many, many years to come.”
The line of non-dairy parmesan cheese alternatives has quickly gained popularity amongst shoppers, according to a press release, as the brand was featured in VegNews magazine as one of the Top 100 Vegan Products of all time.
Parma! is sold in 3.5 and 7 oz bottles and comes in multiple varieties, including Original Parma!, which features a cheesy umami flavor; Better Than Bacon Parma!, which incorporates a smoky bacon flavor; Chipotle Cayenne Parma!, which resembles the smoky flavor and kick of a traditional barbecue chip; and Garlicky Green Parma!, which combines kelp, pumpkin, and sesame seeds with an irresistible Italian herb flavor.
Tofurky founder Seth Tibbott, who is an ongoing advisor, explained, "Like Tofurky, Parma is an authentic, trailblazing brand with deep roots that took hold when the plant-based world was very young. I love that it is a family-owned business run by kind, passionate people producing a wholesome vegan food with exceptional flavor."
With consumers’ interest in vegan diets growing, cheese products that meet these needs without compromising the delicious taste that ropes in cheese lovers everywhere has become a necessity in the world of retail.
Buyers, what are you waiting for? Vegan shoppers have gone without parmesan cheese for far too long!
