Tofutti is a leading manufacturer of soy based, lactose-free dairy products. Seeking a dairy alternative to serve with meat in his kosher restaurant, founder David Mintz began looking for dairy free products that tasted great. Unfortunately, he came up short. Shortly after, Mintz read an article about tofu, and began experimenting with it in his kitchen. The eventual result was Tofutti. Mintz started out by crafting a dairy free sour cream. Tofutti has since grown to offer ice cream, cream cheese, frozen food products, and regular cheese. Eating a dairy free diet can have many benefits for those who aren’t lactose intolerant. Soy based products are lower in fat and cholesterol and high in protein. Many of Tofutti’s products are vegan friendly and all of their products are certified kosher parve. Tofutti is dedicated to using non-GMO soy in all of their products, and they are constantly working to add other GMO-free ingredients to all of their recipes.
Tofutti products range in price from about $3.50 to a little over $8.00. Prices may vary in individual stores. Visit the official Tofutti website for information on where you can find any of their products in a store near you. Tofutti operates out of Cranford, New Jersey.
