The Spare Food Co. introduced its newest product: Spare Tonic, created with upcycled whey. The new Spare Tonic is an effervescent, fermented beverage that has been upcycled with 85-90% whey that would have otherwise been discarded in the production of strained (Greek) yogurt, the company says. The Spare Food Co. is on a mission to make our food system less wasteful, more equitable and more resilient by finding ways to use more of what we already grow and produce, it adds. Spare Tonic comes in four flavors, Lemon & Ginger, Cucumber & Lime, Blueberry & Ginger and Peach & Turmeric. Spare Tonic is available to purchase online at Fresh Direct and Imperfect Foods, as well as specialty retailers such as Murray’s Cheese, Eataly and Local Roots. Store locators can be found by visiting the company’s website.
