Nush was born in an effort to prove that dairy-free doesn’t have to mean bland or boring.
Made in a nuts-only artisan factory based in Greater London, they use nothing but European almonds and filtered water to create their own almond drink that truly lives up to its name. Their almond drink contains a high percentage of almonds to ensure the base of the yogs have a soft mouth feel. They then add live vegan cultures and leave to ferment overnight to create a gut-friendly alternative to dairy that contains billions of live bacteria in every pot.
Free from dairy, gluten and soya, their almond yogs and cheese spreads truly are goodness in a nutshell.
