First Non-Dairy Starter for Smoothies and Desserts

Nasoya tofu introduces a soy-based non-dairy starter, according to this press release.

The first ever non-dairy "dessert starter", new Silken Creations from Nasoya is naturally flavored, dairy free, low in fat and calories, has no cholesterol and is gluten free. It comes in the three most popular flavors for smoothies and desserts: Dark Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry.

Chef, nutrition educator, and cookbook author Maribeth Abrams enjoys the versatility of "Silken Creations". She says, "Silken Creations adds a rich chocolate flavor to Chocolate Mousse and cake recipes. The smooth and creamy consistency of the Vanilla really gives a boost to Key Lime Pie, puddings, frosting, and fillings. The strawberry makes every fruit smoothie taste delectable." ...

Made from whole soybeans and sweetened with cane juice, Silken Creations is low in calories (only 110-120 per half cup serving), low in fat (only 1-1.5 grams) and is a good source of protein (3 grams).

Designed for placement in the fresh produce aisle, Silken Creations has a suggested retail price of $2.49-$2.89 per package. For ordering and further information, contact Nasoya Sales at (978) 772 6880.
