A Singapore-based company called Sophie’s BioNutrients has made a vegan cheese that actually tastes like the real thing.
The creators of this product use algae to create that realistic-tasting cheese that all vegans crave with all of the flavor, but none of the dairy.
It has that slightly tangy taste profile with plenty of umami flavor that is reminiscent of cheddar cheese. Not only does this cheese taste like the real thing, but it can be used in the same ways as well. It is sliceable, meltable, and can be used in any way that you normally would use cheese.
The vegan cheese is also full of vitamins, sporting a huge amount of vitamin B12 in just one serving – a pleasant side effect of the algae.
Unlike dairy farms where cows must be fed and given water as well as producing tonnes of manure waste, the algae used to create this cheese can be fed with recycled food waste and uses far fewer water resources. Thus, this product is not only more ethical, but also more climate-friendly.
It is startups like these that will continue to fuel the plant-based market, giving people better and better options for vegan foods.
