Veggie Cream Cheese Alternative (by Galaxy Nutritional Foods)

  • Where to find it: The soy section of your supermarket, possibly near the produce section.
  • What's in it? The first two ingredients are "veggie milk" (which contains, among other things, organic soymilk solids) and nonhydrogenated canola oil. The package did not list grams of soy protein per serving.
  • Nutritional analysis: 1 ounce or approximately 2 tablespoons = 50 calories, 2 g protein, 4 g carbohydrate, 3 g fat (0 g saturated fat, 2 g monounsaturated fat, 1 g polyunsaturated fat), 0 mg cholesterol, 0 g fiber, 220 mg sodium. Also: 10% Daily Value for vitamin A, 10% calcium, 10% vitamins D and E, and 10% for folic acid.
  • How does it taste? The texture reminds me of a cross between ricotta cheese and cream cheese. It didn't smell appealing to me, but it tasted OK. It would work as a bagel spread with added flavoring like herbs, roasted garlic, etc. And it would probably work in some recipes that call for cream cheese.

Veggie Sour Cream Alternative (by Galaxy Nutritional Foods)

  • Where to find it: The soy section of your supermarket, possibly near the produce section.
  • What's in it? The first two ingredients are "veggie milk" (which contains, among other things, organic soymilk solids and isolated soy protein) and nonhydrogenated canola oil. The package did not list grams of soy protein per serving.
  • Nutritional Analysis: 1 ounce = 40 calories, 1 g protein, 3 g carbohydrate, 3 g fat (0 g saturated fat, 2 g monounsaturated fat, 1 g polyunsaturated fat), 0 mg cholesterol, 0 g fiber, 50 mg sodium.
  • Also: 15% Daily Value for vitamin A, 15 % calcium, 15% vitamins D and E, and 15% for folic acid.
  • How does it taste? Sour cream is a tough product to reproduce. There are only a couple of light sour cream products on the market that I like. I wasn't happy with the taste of the veggie sour cream, but if you mixed it with some other ingredients and were fairly motivated, you'd probably find this product passable.
