CLEVELAND — Fermented foods maker Cleveland Kitchen is expanding its line of fermented dressings and marinades with the launch of Backyard Ranch. The product is the “world’s first fermented ranch dressing,” according to the company.
Made with organic fermented kefir as the base, the dressing features fermented cabbage, garlic and black pepper puree and is sweetened with date syrup. Backyard Ranch is certified gluten-free, keto certified and Non-GMO Project verified. Each serving contains 90 calories and 9 grams of fat per 1-oz serving.
“As a culinary brand passionate about making fermented foods accessible for all, we felt that creating a gut-healthy probiotic ranch was a great entry point for those that might be a little more hesitant to try out fermented products for the first time,” said Drew Anderson, co-founder and chief executive officer of Cleveland Kitchen. “Our newest Backyard Ranch dressing and marinade is a nostalgic nod to our childhood memories in the Midwest while spending days dipping our favorite homegrown veggies into ranch — this time with a healthy twist that families will love.”
Cleveland Kitchen Backyard Ranch is available in Sprouts stores nationwide for $5.99 per 12-oz bottle.
