Perfect Day debuts flora-based ice cream

15 Jul 2019

Perfect Day has announced the launch of its limited edition ice cream, allowing people for the first time to taste a product featuring Perfect Day's flora-based, animal-free dairy protein.

Perfect Day will be offering a bundle containing three flavours of the frozen dairy dessert: Milky Chocolate, Vanilla Salted Fudge and Vanilla Blackberry Toffee.

Perfect Day debuts flora-based ice cream

Since 2014, Perfect Day says it has been developing and scaling a method for producing functional, nutritious protein using fermentation of microflora. Today's limited release, the company says, gives consumers a chance to taste the world's first animal-free dairy products, while demonstrating the potential of this technology to potential collaborators.

"What we're doing here is completely new to the world," said Ryan Pandya, CEO and Co-founder of Perfect Day. "We wanted our first debut to be under the care of our own brand, so that we could demonstrate the consumer benefits inherent to our protein, while starting a conversation about this new approach to making food."

Perfect Day's proteins – created through a fermentation process similar to the manufacture of vitamins and amino acids – are said to be identical to the proteins found in cow's milk, imparting to food products the nutrition, texture, and delicious taste of conventional dairy. Founded by Forbes 30 Under 30 honorees Ryan Pandya and Perumal Gandhi, Perfect Day says it sees the future of the industry as a bright one, and plans to work with companies large and small around the world that can create delicious food products using this protein.

"Our goal has always been impact -- to pave the way for a kinder, greener planet," said Perumal Gandhi, Co-founder of Perfect Day. "The best way to achieve this will be to work with food companies that already purchase huge amounts of dairy ingredients. While our B2B deals come to fruition, we are eager to share our progress with the world."
