Belle Chevre Fig Breakfast Cheese Wins 2013 Cleanest Packaged Food Award from Prevention.Com
Elkmont, AL, March 07, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Belle Chevre’s fig breakfast cheese, one in a line of four creamy artisan breakfast spreads, earned a place as one of Prevention,.com’s 100 Cleanest Packaged Foods. Among all the packaged foods on the grocery aisles today, the fig chevre stood out, winning a place in the cheese category. Requirements for winning were strict: all winners had to not only be delicious, they had to be GMO and BPA-free, have no more than 10 g of added sugar, and contain no more than 200 mg of sodium.
The fig breakfast cheese is creamy goat cheese, combined with flavorful fig preserves for a healthful and perfectly balanced spread, lower in fat and calories than cow’s milk products. With its tiny ingredient list (goat milk, cultures, enzymes, salt, fig), Belle Chevre’s fig chevre is wholesome and healthy. The fig breakfast cheese is also the silver winner of a SOFI award, the food industry’s most prestigious award and was featured on The Today Show.
Prevention.com calls it “the new reason to get out of bed in the morning” and says “everything tastes better coated in savory-sweet goat cheese, especially with an ingredient list this clean.” The article can be read in its entirety on http://www.prevention.com/food/healthy-eating-tips/100-cleanest-packaged-food-awards-2013-breakfast The fig chevre and the full list of winners also appears as a bonus feature in the iPad edition of Prevention’s March issue.
“We are flattered by the recognition,” says Tasia Malakasis, president. “You always appreciate any awards, but ones that nod to wholesome, artisan values and support sustainability really make you feel good.”
Belle Chevre has been recognized and applauded by everyone from the American Cheese Society (for excellence in craftsmanship) and the Good Food Awards (for excellence in sustainability) to the Today Show and Oprah Magazine. With 25 years of cheesemaking experience under their belt, this passionate group of artisans has nearly 100 national awards and is a favorite of the nation’s most savvy cheesemongers.
