Do vegan blue cheeses even exist? Of course they do and here we'll be looking at what vegan blue cheese options you have and where you can buy them from.

"Blue cheese is a general classification of cheeses that have had cultures of the mold Penicillium added so that the final product is spotted or veined throughout with blue, or blue-grey mold and carries a distinct smell, either from that or various specially cultivated bacteria."

It is the exact same for vegan blue cheese too, you'll find that most artisan vegan cheeses use penicillium as well and go through the exact same process.

But instead of using dairy milk and animal ingredients, you'll only find plant based ingredients and nuts in the vegan blue cheese alternatives.

On top of that we'll look at the best vegan blue cheese as voted on by vegan cheese lovers like you, so you can order a plant based blue cheese today and get back on that cheese train!
