Green Valley Organics, Sebastopol, Calif., expanded its line of lactose-free dairy products with what is said to be the first real dairy, lactose-free cream cheese available in the U.S. market.
Green Valley Organics Lactose Free Cream Cheese is made in a solar-powered creamery using a simple, carefully crafted recipe that delivers a perfect balance of sweet and tart in a rich, creamy texture. Perfect for everyday use or as an ingredient in cooking and baking, Green Valley Organics Lactose Free Cream Cheese is minimally-processed and made with milk from a local family farm.
"Our customers have been asking for cream cheese since we first introduced Green Valley Organics in 2010," says Jennifer Bice, president and CEO. "When it comes to dairy, people want the 'real deal,' which is exactly what we make—it just also happens to be lactose free. We are delighted to serve the community of an estimated 30-50 million Americans who are lactose intolerant and to say 'Yes, we now have an organic cream cheese that you and your family can enjoy.'"
Green Valley Organics Cream Cheese is available nationwide at Whole Foods Markets for a suggested retail price of $3.49.
