Dairy-sensitive consumers are rejoicing as yet another flavorful zero-dairy product hits the market. Food tech company Armored Fresh recently pulled back the curtain on its newest product: Oat Milk Pepper Jack Slices.
“In order to start making an impact on the planet at a greater scale, consumers need to have better options that aren’t simply alternatives to dairy-based foods, but that they truly crave because they’re so delicious they can’t tell the difference,” said Armored Fresh Chief Executive Officer Rudy Yoo. “From day one, we have focused on taste and other senses like smell and mouthfeel to create outstanding zero-dairy cheeses that rival traditional dairy. Our new Oat Milk Pepper Jack slices are one of our most exciting launches yet, and we can’t wait for people to put them to the taste test!”
So what brings this inventive alternative dairy product to life? As a press release detailed, fiery jalapeños and rich oat milk are combined to create the perfectly melty and savory cheese that’s delicious on burgers, grilled cheeses, sandwiches, quesadillas, and more.
The new Oat Milk Pepper Jack Slices boast an identical taste and texture to animal-based pepper jack cheese, packing an enticing aroma of subtle heat, mild nuttiness, and slight umami. As a result of the brand’s patented technologies, Oat Milk Pepper Jack Slices also have a melting property that is on par with that of dairy-based cheese.
Oat Milk Pepper Jack Slices are gluten-free, contain zero dairy, and are non-GMO, offering a convenient alternative for those with diet restrictions or who have food allergies and sensitivities.
The company previously disrupted the dairy-free cheese category with its beloved lineup of products, including cubed cheeses, Oat Milk American Slices, and Almond Milk American Slices. The company plans to continue expanding its range of zero-dairy SKUs through a combination of innovative science and culinary art.
Currently, Armored Fresh cheeses are available at select retailers nationwide, including Kroger, Fresh Thyme Market, Town and Country Foods, and Fred Meyer, as well as foodservice partners. Where will we see the brand pop up next?
