Galaxy Nutritional Foods Inc., North Kingstown, R.I., expanded its GO VEGGIE line with new vegan soy-free grated parmesan, made with coconut and delivering just 20 calories per 2 teaspoons.

"GO VEGGIE prides itself in offering better-for-you versions of the everyday cheese products people love to eat," says Allison Houle, marketing manager. "We have two other successful parmesan SKUs, but wanted to offer a dairy and soy-free option for those with allergies, or just striving to eliminate soy from their diet. This decadent parmesan alternative delivers the taste and texture of traditional parmesan, along with better nutrition that today's mindful consumers crave. It's perfect on pizza, pasta or sprinkled on popcorn for a snack."

The 4-ounce shaker is sold in the produce, dairy or natural sections of conventional and natural grocery stores nationwide for a suggested retail price of $4.99.
