What is Non Dairy Cheese

Non dairy cheese is simply vegan cheese, it is not vegetarian cheese, it is vegan, sometimes referred to as plant based cheese.

It can also be called dairy free cheese.

Most traditional cheeses you will find in supermarkets and stalls will be dairy cheeses, where they use dairy to create their specific cheeses.

To understand this better, this is the definition of dairy:

Dairy products or milk products are a type of food produced from or containing the milk of mammals, most commonly cattle, water buffaloes, goats, sheep, and camels.

Some cheeses go one step further and are called rennet cheeses, which use enzymes from the stomach of ruminant animals, like cows. This makes cheeses produced in this way, not even vegetarian, as they mostly use calves for this process.

If you're looking for non dairy cheese and cheeses not made with animal products, then vegan cheese is exactly what you're looking for.

 

How Do They Make Non Dairy Cheese

This probably all sounds really exciting, but you might have more questions, such as:

How do they make non dairy cheese?

And if this is a question you'd like to know the answer to, we'll get right to it.

With vegan and plant based cheeses, they don't use any part of an animal to create their cheeses, not the milk from a cow, or the enzymes from a stomach, but they can use similar processes to create them, such as ageing or prebiotics to add mould to a cheese.

Prebiotics increase bacteria or fungi which create new textures and flavours within vegan cheeses, and they do this with dairy cheese as well.

All non dairy cheese makers use their own personal approach to creating their amazing cheeses, and you'll find they all use different ingredients too.

But there is one similarity between them all, they all use plant based ingredients.

Ingredients such as cashews, oats, rice, soy and even carrots are all used to create amazing non dairy cheeses.

Thats right, nothing but plants!

This means two amazing things, less harm to animals and you'll find they're much better for the environment than traditional cheeses too.
