Frequently Asked Questions

Are your products organic?
All Forager products are certified organic. Organic farming is more labor intensive than conventional farming and requires higher quality standards. Maintaining the integrity of organic produce through both the processing and manufacturing chain requires a third party certification and incremental expense.

Are your products non-GMO?
All Forager products are non-GMO. Our organic certification ensures our products are not only free of GMOs but that you are consuming food that contains no artificial ingredients, flavors or preservatives, no toxic or persistent chemicals, no synthetic fertilizers or sewage sludge. What’s more, organic growing practices help enhance soil fertility while protecting wildlife and promoting biodiversity. Goodness throughout, from beginning to beginning again.

Are your products vegan?
All Forager products are plant-based and vegan. Additionally, all of our products are free of lactose, gluten, and soy.

Are your products Kosher? If so, what certification?
Yes. Please refer to the individual product packaging for specific Kosher certifications as we produce in multiple production facilities.

Cashews and Cultures.
Why cashews?
Cashews delicate flavor and silky texture make them better for creating a neutral and creamy dairy-like taste experience. Additionally, although cashews don’t yet enjoy the popular awareness of some other nuts, these under-appreciated nuts are at the top of many best nut nutrition lists. Like other nuts, cashews are a great source for protein as well as being loaded with healthy monounsaturated fats, and a good source of several key minerals like phosphorus, magnesium, manganese and most particularly copper.

What is Cashewgurt®?
Cashewgurt is a dairy-free, cashew based yogurt alternative.

How do you make your Cashewgurt® texture so similar to dairy?
Because of its' delicate flavor and creamy texture, our Cashewmilk provides a wonderful base for dairy-free alternative products. This base is further complemented and enhanced by our processing techniques and our unique combination and variety of probiotics.

How many probiotics do you use in Cashewgurt® and what are they?
Our number and variety make our probiotics unique in the alternative yogurt category. We use a specific blend of 6 different probiotics (S. THERMPOHILUS, L. BULGARICUS, L. ACIDOPHILUS, BIFIDUS, L. LACTIS, L. PLANTARUM) to create amazing taste and texture as well as deliver a product that is effective in providing the digestive benefits associated with live active cultures.

How many cultures are in your cultured products?
All our Cashewgurt® and Probiotic Cashewgurt® products contain in excess of 1 Billion total LIVE & ACTIVE cultures per gram at the time of manufacture. This culture count meets or exceeds industry accepted criteria such as "Live & Active Cultures" seal program of the National Yogurt Association (NYA). Live & active cultures are associated with a wide array of health benefits.

Why doesn’t your Probiotic Cashewgurt® have the tart/tangy taste of traditional Kefir?
The differences in the composition of the base “milk” and the different macro/micronutrients available for cultures to ferment affect acidity levels. Being dairy-free, our acidity is lower. The bio-available nutrients and milk sugars (lactose) in cultured dairy products, conversely, are converted into lactic acid which results in higher acidity and tartness.

What is the difference between your Cashewgurt® and your Probiotic Cashewgurt®?
First, and most obvious, is the consistency of the two products. Cashewgurt® is spoonable while our Probiotic Cashewgurt® offers a drinkable experience. Additionally, the cultures in the two products are different. As is typical with Kefir (or Kefir like) products the number of the cultures is greater. While not as tart as traditional dairy Kefir, our Probiotic Cashewgurt® also is a bit more tart than our spoonable Cashewgurt®.

Is your drinkable Cashewgurt® organic?
Yes, like all of Forager’s products,  Cashewgurt® USDA certified organic.

Where do your cashews come from?
Currently, we source our cashews from Vietnam and the Ivory Coast.

Is your product appropriate for people with food sensitivities or allergies?
Forager creamy dairy-free Cashewgurt® is all free of lactose, gluten, and soy. However, because our creamy dairy-free yogurt is made with cashews, they may not be appropriate for people with tree nut allergies or sensitivities.

I have dietary restrictions, are your products right for me?
We believe our products offer a variety of great options for a wide array of lifestyles. However, as food is about personal choice, it’s really up to the individual. We recommend consulting with your physician or health care provider, to help you with questions or concerns you may have about our products or the specific ingredients in our products.


What makes your vegetable chips unique?
Our chips are similar in texture to a traditional tortilla chip but are made with dehydrated vegetables and are both corn and gluten-free.
