Hottest Food Trend to Look Out For: Spero Sunflower Cheese

Spero Foods started the Sunflower Trend and continues to lead with award-winning plant-based cheeses.

The sunflower has taken over as the superstar of seeds in 2022 – especially with Spero Foods leading the charge. Not only are sunflowers packed with protein, minerals, and unsaturated fats, but they’re also environmentally friendly. Spero Foods has launched its sunflower seed-based cheese products into over 1500 stores.

Sunflowers have been around for centuries, and their popularity as a food source has steadily grown in recent years. Thanks to Spero Foods, the company that kicked off the Sunflower Trend with its patent-pending processes that whips seeds into indistinguishable dairy alternatives, sunflowers are in high demand. Foods’ new Global Trends Report, called “Seize The Sunflower,” spotlights Spero as one of the leading producers of innovative sunflower seed products.

Spero Foods  is a plant-based cheese company that is on a mission to change the way people think about cheese and dairy alternatives. They are committed to making delicious, nutritious, and environmentally friendly cheese and egg alternatives that everyone can enjoy. Their flagship product, Spero’s Sunflower Cheese, is made with sunflower seeds as their top ingredient and is packed with protein, selenium, zinc, vitamin E, and probiotics. Plus, all of Spero’s cheeses are plant-based with simple ingredients you can trust: sunflower seeds, water, a dash of coconut oil, others: spices, salt, natural flavors, gums, probiotics.

Lizzo, the sensational #1 hit celebrity and musician, recently posted a video of her making pasta on TikTok and using a creamy dollop of Spero’s plant-based ‘goat’ cheese, which quickly went viral. With over 33 million views on TikTok and millions more on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, Lizzo’s recipe video has helped Spero’s Sunflower Cheese become one of the most popular trends of 2022. “It was actually really tasty cheese,” Lizzo said. The singer went on to make several more mouth-watering TikToks which she cooked with Spero’s Sunflower Cheese.

Spero was founded in California, and their trendy Sunflower Cheese gained immediate popularity with natural retailers. “Food service chains, such as the New York-based Black Seed Bagels and Zucker’s Bagels – both of which have cult-like followings, are also catching onto Spero’s Sunflower Cheese movement.” Spero’s cheese is also featured in other noteworthy eateries, such as Whole Foods, The Fresh Market, Fresh Thyme, Erewhon, Baia, and Wildseed. Thanks to its just-like-dairy flavor and cool packaging, Spero’s Sunflower Cheese has become a favorite among discerning foodies.

Because of this positive response, Spero is quickly gaining a following on social media. LilSipper, Ellana Bryan, Tastemade, Radhi, Jules, Kateri, Stuart Brazell, and Michelin-starred Single Thread Farms staff are just some of the major celebrities and artists who have reviewed Spero’s products – and they’re all fans.

Spero’s Sunflower Cheese is becoming a go-to for cheese lovers who are looking for a delicious, clean, and non-dairy option. People love that Spero’s cheeses are made from simple ingredients that are packed with probiotics, making them not only delicious but also healthy. What’s more, Spero has recently launched a digital platform with 80 recipes demonstrating how easy it is to use Spero’s products to make anything delicious, even without dairy.
