Daiya Dairyfree Cheese

A review of the vegan cheese substitute Daiya.


Review: Daiya Dairyfree Cheese

Published 17:29 pm

re vegan, lactose intolerant or health conscious, your days of waiting for a suitable dairy-free cheese substitute are finally over.

After years of trying to make vegan nachos and pizza with cheese alternatives that wouldn't melt or spread, I resigned myself to the fact that my days of making grilled cheese sandwiches were long over.

That was until I went to Whole Foods market and found a container of Daiya Vegan Cheese alternative in the non-dairy section. At home, excited, I immediately sprinkled a generous amount of the Italian blend atop tortilla chips and threw it into the microwave for two minutes. It melted!

It actually did the same thing that would happen if you were to put real cheese in the microwave. I devoured my nachos and went on to make the first grilled cheese sandwich I had eaten since childhood. Sure enough the divine Daiya melted and spread all over the bread, oozing deliciousness as I took my first bite.

A week later and five containers of Daiya later, I went back to the Whole Foods, but the Daiya was nowhere to be found. Anxiously, I searched all over for a purveyor of this delicious dairy-free substitute. Unable to secure a retail sized portion of the cheese, I went to the Pangea website and bought a five pound bag of the Daiya cheese.

Ever since, Daiya has found a way into my breakfast dinner and lunch and the bag is already halfway gone. According to the company's facebook page, a retail version of the product will be available in stores by April 1st, although the company is still working on a retail launch. The product comes in both Italian and cheddar style shreds, both are equally delicious.

Daiya is perfect for those looking to help stop the cruelty that happens on factory farms or are just looking for a healthy substitute for cheese.

The product is 100% vegan and doesn't contain any casein which is used in a lot of other non-dairy cheese blends. Daiya has three times less saturated fat per serving than regular diary cheese and is also free of trans fats. Since it is a vegan product, it is free of all the nasty hormones, cholesterol and antibiotics that are found in most animal based cheeses.

This makes it a healthy snack for the entire family to enjoy.
