Some people say there’s just no comparison to dairy cheese. You can make your own nut cheese or purchase a cheese substitute, but still, many people can tell the difference between what they call “fake cheese” and the cow’s cheese. We get it – though we love us some veggie cheese, we know people are weary of substitutes. But change is here! Just like meat substitutes, which have gotten tastier and more meat-like, cheese substitutes are getting better, too!
You’ve probably never seen cheese quite like this! Check out the products from Follow Your Heart – they have cheese shreds, Vegenaise, salad dressings, gourmet cheese spreads and gourmet cheese shreds. The company says with the taste of their products, “the great taste of cheese is now more than a memory,” so try them out and see for yourself!
