Dairy alternative products by Miyoko’s have been a huge hit. They’ve released vegan cream cheese, pub cheese, and cheese wheels that can be delivered with vegan wine. These products have been so successful that Miyoko’s even received a $6 million investment to expand. Now Miyoko’s Kitchen will be releasing a line of nut-free vegan cheese!
Miyoko’s products, such as their cheese wheels, roadhouse cheeses, cream cheeses, and more are made with a cashew nut and coconut oil base, but the new products will be more allergy-friendly and affordable. Miyoko Schinner says they’re using a variety of beans such as garbanzo and butter beans, as well as seeds for protein. The new cheeses will have protein, fiber, and be organic, and will have half the calories that traditional dairy has.
Although the exact flavors of the new cheeses haven’t been announced, Schinner did say that so far there will be three new flavors of very traditional styles of cheese that will melt perfectly for grilled cheeses and pizzas, as well as a snackable cheddar for moms to put in their kids’ lunch boxes.
