There are a growing number of non-dairy cheese products on the market, but omnivorous and discerning vegan consumers are quick to spot products that don't behave quite like the real thing. Fortunately, Wood & Water Foods seems to have perfected the art of vegan cheese-making with its soft and spreadable cashew-based products.
These artisan, cultured and raw dairy-free cheese products come in a variety of types, including Original, Herb + Garlic and Sharp + Smoky flavors. Just like authentic blocks of cheese, these ones are formed into small rounds that are packaged in paper.
As health-consciousness increases, so does the demand for plant-based alternatives, especially as substitutes for conventional dairy products. Other than cashews, vegan cheese is now being prepared with everything from almonds and coconuts to soy yogurt and chia seeds.
