Organic superfood brand Nutiva has introduced a new organic vegan ghee, which it claims is ideal for high-heat cooking, baking and spreading.
Available across the US, Nutiva claims its new product is the first versatile, dairy-free ghee alternative. The brand says the plant-based ghee can be used in sauces and baked goods, and for grilling, sautéing and slow-cooking.
Nutiva’s organic vegan ghee is made using a blend of steam-refined coconut oil, avocado oil, vegan ghee flavouring – which is derived from a blend of sunflower and naturally fermented plants –and turmeric extract.
The new cooking oil is described as a “rich and creamy” plant-based alternative to traditional dairy-based ghee, which is also Non-GMO Project verified, keto-friendly and gluten-free.
“Organic culinary oils have been a staple within our portfolio since we launched our first coconut oil in 2002,” said Steven Naccarato, CEO of Nutiva.
He added: “With the launch of our new Organic Vegan Ghee, we’re extending into a new space and are looking forward to bringing a clean, plant-based alternative to the market as a swap for the beloved dairy-based culinary oil.”
The cooking oil joins Nutiva’s line of USDA Certified organic coconut, chia, hemp and avocado superfoods.
Nutiva’s organic vegan ghee is currently available for an RRP of $13.99 across the US at Sprouts Farmers Market, Wegmans and Thrive Market, with additional retailers to follow.
