Califia Farms, Los Angeles, launched Better Half Creamer, a nut-based alternative to half and half, along with a reformulation of its line of Almondmilk creamers.

“Seventy-two percent of coffee-drinkers take some form of cream with their coffee, but until now, their half and half choices were limited to high-fat dairy versions or sugar and soy-laden, non-dairy versions. With Better Half, we are offering a nut-based, healthful alternative, one that combines coconut and almond cream to be creamy and rich without excess sugars or ‘bad-for-you’ oils,” says Greg Steltenpohl, chief executive officer. “And, with the government’s recently released dietary guidelines recommending limiting sugar intake to just 10% of your daily calories, these new products mean coffee drinkers don’t have to worry about adding any unwanted sugars to their morning cup.”

Califia’s coffee creamers are made with nut creams vs “bad-for-you,” while being free from dairy, soy, GMOs, gluten, trans-fat, carrageenan and excess sugars.

In addition to the Unsweetened version, the full line of Almondmilk creamers also includes Pecan Caramel, Vanilla and Hazelnut flavors.

Both lines are available at retailers nationwide.
