Some of Our Favourite Vegan Cheeses 

We're so happy to see Food By Sumear appearing in this list of 25 vegan cheeses, we've had most of his vegan cheeses and they are just incredible. When comparing them to supermarket coconut based cheeses, they are like night and day. They really are some of our favourite and one of the reasons is because they remind us of cheese we had before we went vegan.

Tyne Chease and I Am Nut OK both appear in this top 25 list and they have some amazing nut cheeses and offer quite the selection, we would highly recommend these.

VeGourmet and Violife both have a cheese in this list, and whilst they are mass produced, when melted or ate in a sandwich with other ingredients can be quite similar to non-vegan cheeses, especially in texture and taste.

You will also find cream cheese by Plant Perks and even vegan cheese slices.

So amongst all of these plant based cheeses, there is definitely going to be something for you to try and hopefully enjoy.
