Difference Between Dairy Mozzarella and Vegan Mozzarella
Animal based mozzarella cheese originated from southern Italy and is made of buffalo milk. The vegan alternative to mozzarella cheese is made of non-animal based alternatives to milk and no animals or calves were harmed in creating these vegan cheeses below.
The great thing about the plant based mozzarella cheese is that they are all made with different ingredients so you know you'll have different experiences from one cheese to the next. Some are made with rice, others are made of coconut oil and others from nuts, there is such a wonderful world of vegan mozzarellas out there to explore.
If you are lactose intolerant, going plant based can help with your cheese options and open up a whole new world of foods.
There are also other diet types that can benefit from the ingredients used in vegan cheeses.
Vegan mozzarella has the 5th largest choice of vegan cheeses available today, after plain vegan cheeses and alternatives to parmesan with nearly 40 options. There is bound to be an amazing vegan mozzarella that you love and want to eat all the time, we certainly have our favourites.
You can find vegan mozzarella cheese online to buy, at vegan fairs and markets as well as vegan cheese shops which are starting to pop up.
