Daiya Cheese

#1 Postby veggieprincess » Tue Apr 13, 2010 12:24 am

By far the best Vegan cheese on the market

http://www.daiyafoods.com/

It melts pretty much upon contact and none of that yucky aftertaste most Vegan cheeses have.

A little bit adds a lot of flavor. Just add a couple tablespoons to your tofu scramble, or if you don't need to watch your fat and carbs... make a grilled cheese sandwich and I'll live vicariously through you eating it!!! YUMMMMMMM!!!

The Whole Foods and Natural Health Food Stores by me carry it. What a great find!

I've been wanting to try it forever...but the only way I can get it is to order a giant 5 lb tub online. Not sure I want to order that much of something I may not like.

Yeah that stuff is awesome. Amazing how flavorful it is. It's been 13+ years since I've had real cheese, but I say this stuff is spot-on.

You will LOVE it. Like no other Vegan cheese they've ever put out. Call the company direct and maybe they'd be willing to ship you a smaller sample first.

Order the cheddar though. That's the only one I can vouch for. So flavorful!

I LOVE Daiya but I try to use it SUPER sparingly since the nutrition facts are not as good as one would hope, but every now and then it's an AWESOME treat. I like to grate some into mac and "cheese" for optimum gooeyness.

It's pretty cool that it's soy and gluten free but yeah, outside of that there's not a lot to love nutritionally. Delicious though!

TripleH - Viva Granola is an online Canadian vegan store that has it...but to my knowledge the minimum you need to order is 5 lbs. :(

Don't know about NS, but I haven't seen it in SK to buy...but that's not really surprising.

..SK and the Maritimes are a lot alike - can't get most of the good stuff here... 5lbs is too much... if they had 2lb sizes, I'd jump on it, but............

If you decide to get 5lbs, let me know, I'll buy a couple of lbs from ya <hehe>

The website look sunder construction. How do they ship it? Does it not need to be cold? How's the price? Economics of vegan cheese aren't where I'd like them to be from what I've seen.

Daiya is amazing. Cheddar and mozzarella are both amazing. My only complaint is that it is really high in fat so it sometimes make me feel a little greasy, but it's good to have a few times a week.

You'd have to freeze it. It lasts maybe 2-3 weeks in the fridge. I've heard it freezes well though.
