I'm so excited to introduce to you a new product I've come across called nutpods. Nutpods is a dairy-free and gluten-free creamer made from almonds and coconuts. The founder, Madeline Haydon, uses the term "wholesome" to describe the nutpods creamer that is "without carrageenan or the 'usual suspects' of titanium dioxide, mono and diglycerides, hydrogenated/partially hydrogenated oils." The company has even gone the extra mile to make nutpods certified gluten-free, which I totally respect. I'm on the list to receive a sample as soon as it's available. I can't wait to try, and I'll let you know how it tastes. Here's what nutpods shared with me...
GREEN GRASS FOODS TO LAUNCH GLUTEN-FREE CREAMER IN LATE SPRING
Green Grass Foods Inc., from Newport Beach, California, has developed a new gluten-free and dairy-free product, nutpods, that will launch in late spring of this year. Nutpods is a clean label creamer made from almonds and coconuts. The product carries Gluten-free, Vegan, non-GMO Project, and OU kosher certifications.
Nutpods is part of a growing demand for milk alternatives; many coffee shops now offer both soy and almond milk for their customers. Industry-leaders Dunkin’ Donuts and Peet’s Coffee have recently introduced almond milk in their stores, and Starbucks now serves coconut milk.
Nutpods, unlike other alternative creamers, is unsweetened to let consumers ‘create their perfect cup’ with their preferred sweetener at their own sweetness level. It also differs from the competition due to its richer, creamier texture and balanced taste. Nutpods will launch with two flavors, Original and French Vanilla, in convenient sustainable Tetrapak packaging (pictured above), with plans to add Hazelnut soon after. The product does not require refrigeration until opened and then stays fresh 7-10 days when chilled.
Green Grass Foods founder, Madeline Haydon, launched the company in November 2013 with a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised over $30,000. She has since won the Dream Big America competition and the Zenith Award for people’s choice for best investment opportunity at the Zino Society, a prestigious angel investment group in Seattle.
Madeline decided to produce nutpods after carrying a homemade concoction of almond and coconut milk in her purse for years to use in her coffee. “I kept looking for the perfect rich and creamy dairy-free coffee creamer at the grocery store and never found it. After waiting 3 years, I decided to explore the idea of launching my own brand.”
