May 2011 – What is a bagel without cream cheese or a cupcake without cream cheese frosting? A party without a rich creamy vegetable spread? Now individuals with an allergy to gluten, dairy, or lactose; individuals with vegan or kosher preferences and, individuals just looking for a healthier alternative, can enjoy the richness of flavor and versatility of cooking with traditional cream cheese by substituting Galaxy’s new non-dairy cream cheese alternatives.
