Fy Yogurt, the new product line is made from sustainable fungi protein as a base, instead of traditional ingredients like cow milk, nuts, oats, or soy. This is the third product line in the brand’s portfolio, alongside Dairy-Free Cream Cheese and Meatless Fy Breakfast Patties.

Fy Yogurt is available in single-serve 5.3-ounce containers in three flavors: strawberry, peach, and vanilla. The peach and strawberry flavors have just 8 grams of added sugar, and vanilla flavor with 9 grams. None of the flavors contain artificial flavors or preservatives.

It is suitable for those with allergies as it is free from animal products, nuts, soy, and gluten plus it has a smooth and creamy texture, unlike other high-protein and plant-based yogurts.

Nature’s Fynd uses a fermentation process to grow Fy protein from fungi found in Yellowstone National Park. This protein is used to make dairy-free cream cheese, meatless breakfast patties, and dairy-free yogurt. This process is more sustainable than traditional agriculture, using less land, water, and emitting fewer greenhouse gases.

This company has introduced a unique fungi-based yogurt in a saturated dairy-free yogurt market which offers both great taste and nutritional value, with 8 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber. It is a sustainable and earth-friendly product that aims to provide consumers with a delicious alternative that is also good for health and the environment.
