Animal-Free Our Process Sustainability Benefits The Latest

Milk Reinvented: Sustainable. Kind. Delicious.

We craft animal-free dairy products that taste like the real thing.

Why Animal-Free?

We wanted a way to enjoy the dairy products we love - with zero compromise.

So we created Perfect Day: milk crafted without the help of a single cow (hey, she could use a day off). It's made to be more nutritious, safe, and sustainable than factory-farmed dairy. And it tastes just like cow's milk!

Our Process

How do we do it? With natural resources and human ingenuity. Instead of having cows do all the work, we make our milk with a process similar to craft brewing. Using yeast and age-old fermentation techniques, we make the very same milk proteins that cows make.

Then we add a special mix of plant-based sugars, fats, and minerals to make a totally new kind of dairy milk without stabilizers, hormones, lactose, or other nonsense.

Dairy Yeast

Sourced from the USDA, ours is a natural dairy yeast nurtured by science.

Dairy Yeast
Sugar

Like cows, our yeast needs to graze to make milk proteins. Instead of grass, we feed our yeast sugar from renewable sources.

Fermentation

This age-old process (used to brew beer, leaven bread, and make pickles) transforms sugar into real milk proteins.

Milk Proteins

Thanks to our yeast, who we lovingly call Buttercup, Perfect Day contains the very same protein found in cow's milk.

Milk Proteins
Nutrients

Perfect Day has the vitamins and minerals found in cow's milk, like calcium and vitamin D, plus other powerhouses like omega-3's.

Nutrients
Plant Fats & Sugars

Plant-powered for the perfect taste, texture, and mouthfeel — with none of the cholesterol or lactose found in cow's milk.

The Latest

"The company imagines its products ultimately as a complement to cow-based milk that takes some of the stress away from the factory farming system, rather than trying to replace dairy cows entirely. 'We’re another option that we think people are hungry for that just isn’t there today.'"

"The company's dairy offerings are lactose-free, and they use 98 percent less water in production, according to a study performed by a team of conservation biologists."

"Rather than give up on their beliefs about keeping a diet that is kind to animals and the planet, the pair launched a startup—called Perfect Day Foods—to create an alternative: real cow’s milk, without the cow."

"While non-dairy alternatives are everywhere, with everything from almond to soy to pea milk dominating grocery shelves, Perfect Day's product is the first that aims to be identical in nutrition and taste to actual cow's milk. "

"But Gandhi and Pandya knew if they could make cow’s milk without cows, they could answer environmental and animal welfare concerns without sacrificing the benefits of milk’s chemical composition."
