Official Press Release:
Leader in Dairy-free Products Adds Sweetness to your holiday season.
This holiday season, most Americans will be hosting holiday meals with friends and family. Many American holiday gatherings include up to 30 people or more. Aromas of delicious dishes like turkey, pastas, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie with whip cream, custards, puddings and so much more fill the air. But what many don’t realize is that out of 30 guests they will have, at least one won’t be able to enjoy any dessert dishes made with dairy — because they are lactose intolerant.
According to U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, there are currently more than 40 million lactose intolerant Americans and millions of other undocumented cases. Yet, there are limited foods that currently serve this tremendous growing population.
“Tofutti products are innovative dairy-free alternatives to customers who crave the taste and texture of dairy, but have been prohibited from dairy either due to dairy intolerance or other dietary needs,” states David Mintz, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Tofutti, My motto is, if it’s dairy, we can make it dairy-free.”
