Best known for its dairy-free cheese products, it was only a matter of time before Daiya Foods came out with a dairy-free cheesecake—or as the brand likes to call it, a "Cheezecake." Creamy flavors like chocolate, strawberry, key lime and New York-style Cheezecakes are countered with a textured crust made from ingredients like tapioca starch, coconut oil, cane sugar, brown rice flour, molasses, flax seed and potato starch.
As a brand that caters to those with alternative diets and allergy restrictions, Daiya will only continue to be a household staple for many, especially as they are now conquering the dessert category. As Daiya's president of marketing Michael Lynch describes: "Practically everyone who tastes the product is amazed to discover that a cheesecake that tastes so rich, creamy and indulgent is dairy-free, gluten-free and soy-free. It's truly one of those situations where you have to taste it to believe it."
