US plant-based butter brand NuttZo has made its first foray into the savoury spreads and cooking ingredients category with a five seed tahini-style butter.
NuttZo Five-Seed Tahini Fusion is made with a blend of organic sesame, flax, sunflower, pumpkin and chia.
The vegan seed butter is gluten-free and approved for the paleo, keto, Whole30 and kosher lifestyles. It is also said to be allergen-friendly – free of nuts and soy, and made in a peanut-free facility.
NuttZo says its tahini-style spread can be used in dressings, dips, desserts, main dishes and smoothies.
“During quarantine, I discovered tahini and was so impressed by how versatile it is. I began experimenting in my kitchen and decided to give it a NuttZo twist by adding a variety of seeds to build out the flavour and nutrient profile, and it was amazing,” said Danielle Dietz-LiVolsi, founder and CEO of NuttZo.
“Five-Seed Tahini Fusion is a no-brainer evolution for NuttZo. We are always looking for strategic ways to expand across the grocery store.”
NuttZo Five-Seed Tahini Fusion will be available at select Whole Foods and online for an SRP of $7.99. Like the rest of its mixed nut and seed butters, portions of the proceeds will be donated to Project Left Behind, NuttZo’s sister non-profit that supports orphaned and underprivileged children.
