Wild Creamery is a Santa Rosa based company that makes plant-based dairy alternatives such as butter, sour cream, and cream cheese. They are an offshoot of the company Wild Brine which makes plant-based foods such as kimchi, sauerkraut, and salsa.
The Wild Creamery non-dairy alternatives are unique because they are made with wild fermentation opposed to using a lab-grown culture. This means that they use the natural occurring pro-biotic bacteria from cabbage for their non-dairy culture. That gives their products an authentic flavor like traditional dairy products.
Wild Creamery makes butter similar to Miyoko’s or Earth Balance but also offers unique non-dairy products such as French Onion Dip, Chipotle Lime Dip and Spinach Dip. Wild Creamery products can be found nationwide at grocery stores like Whole Foods, Sprouts and through their ecommerce store.
Olivia Slaugh, the Quality Assurance Manager, at Wild Creamery explained, “The inspiration for our products comes from a variety of sources. We hear back from customers about what they’re interested in having but we also have a really strong research and development department that is constantly, from a culinary perspective, doing testing on our products to improve them and develop new flavors.”
Wild Creamery’s website explains that, “By using lactic acid culture just like those used in making traditional dairy products, we’re able to develop comparable taste and texture in plant-based dips, butter, sour cream, and cream cheese. Ideal for both vegans and non-vegans alike, our new plant-based dairy alternatives are gluten-free, non-GMO, and made in-house with our own cultures.”
Wild Creamery products are great to try if you are looking for non-dairy alternatives of your favorite dairy products. They are another amazing company that is local to Sonoma County and is serving the whole nation. You will not miss conventional butter, sour cream, cream cheese, or dip after trying the excellent products from Wild Creamery.
