About the Brand

In 2014 Alex and Jeremy co-founded The Honest Stand and debuted their first product line; four allergen friendly savory sauces. Now both business and life partners, Alex and Jeremy spend their time turning plants into convenient comfort foods for folks across the country to enjoy. The Honest Stand has the integrity, honor, and courage to create real food that is both savory and healthy for foodies, healthy eaters and folks with dietary restrictions to enjoy.

Alex started making vegan, paleo cheesy sauce in college with the help of her best friend (aka mom) upon switching to a more plant-based lifestyle after being diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2010. When she discovered her partner, Jeremy, couldn’t tell the difference between her Mac N’ Cheese and the “real deal,” she knew she was onto something. Jeremy spiced up the line with the creation of Nacho Cheesy Sauce, and together they created the Smoked and Blue variations to have a delicious topping for every type of meal craving. These days the pair spends their time (eating) and making Cheesy Sauce for folks all over the country that love gourmet food and strive to look and feel their best.

What is sunflower lecithin?

Sunflower lecithin is rich in choline and other essential fatty acids to support heart health and digestion. Alex first discovered it as a popularly recommended supplement for breastfeeding moms! In our dips, the organic sunflower lecithin used in our proprietary blending process helps create the creamy consistency our fans love.

What is tapioca starch?

Tapioca starch is extracted from the roots of cassava plants. As a result of replacing potatoes with tapioca starch in our new recipes, our dips have an even more lovable, creamy texture and consistency. Additionally, the shift to tapioca starch makes our dips now equally enjoyable straight from the fridge cold, or as part of a recipe while making them acceptable to a wider range of folks within the paleo community.
