The Mexicana Vegan cheese is one of the latest dairy-free offerings from the Norseland-owned brand that will offer consumers a way to enjoy authentic Mexican flavor in a free-from manner. The cheese features a coconut-based recipe that's fortified with vitamin B12 and calcium, while being free from milk, lactose, soy, gluten and nuts. This positions the product as being perfect for those who want or need to avoid certain ingredients, but who are on the hunt for alternatives.
Senior Brand Manager for Mexicana at Norseland Lisa Harrison spoke on the Mexicana Vegan cheese saying, "The popularity of Applewood Vegan proved to us that there is a real demand for vegan alternatives to cheese, not just from vegans, but from flexitarians too. And what was key in its popularity was how well it melts like its dairy cheese counterparts. We applied the same logic to the creation of Mexicana Vegan and our taste panel of spicy cheese enthusiasts are already hooked on it, because it’s super-stringy when it melts and has all of the flavor of Mexicana, including a nice spicy kick.”
