The Spare Food Co., a company that is part of the upcycling food movement, is expanding its signature beverage brand which uses fresh whey produced as part of Greek-style yogurt manufacturing, with the introduction of a new flavor: Passion Fruit & Yuzu. The new flavor, the fifth in the Spare Tonic portfolio, debuted at Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim.
Made with four ingredients - whey, fruit, spice, and a touch of honey - the nutrient-rich, vitamin-packed Spare Tonic beverages are the brainchild of The Spare Food Co,’s mindful changemakers: co-founders Adam Kaye (former culinary director of Blue Hill at Stone Barns) and Jeremy Kaye (Patagonia, Nike). The brothers grew up in a family of culinary entrepreneurs, a legacy that goes back at least four generations, and have combined their culinary expertise with that of their innate social consciousness to create food and beverage products that aim to fix the broken food system which views overlooked ingredients as food waste, versus what they really are: wasted food.
Spare Tonic Passion Fruit & Yuzu contains probiotics, electrolytes, and B-vitamins, like other Spare varieties: Lemon & Ginger, Cucumber & Lime, Peach & Turmeric, and Blueberry & Ginger.
