Soft Cashew Cheeses

Wood & Water Foods Makes Raw, Cultured Non-Dairy Cheese

— April 7, 2016 — Lifestyle
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.
Trend Themes
1. Plant-based Cheese - The growing demand for plant-based alternatives creates potential for various industries to create vegan cheese products, leading to innovative recipes and ingredients.
2. Cultured Non-dairy Cheese - Cultured non-dairy cheese may become an innovative trend as consumers seek non-dairy options that behave more like conventional cheese.
3. Raw Vegan Cheese - Raw vegan cheese may become mainstream as a healthier alternative to processed vegan cheeses, offering new flavors, forms, and textures.
Industry Implications
1. Dairy Alternative Industry - The dairy alternative industry can leverage this trend by creating plant-based cheese products using various nuts, seeds, and other ingredients.
2. Vegan Food Industry - The vegan food industry can capitalize on this trend by experimenting with innovative recipes and ingredients to create new vegan cheese products.
3. Artisanal Food Industry - The artisanal food industry can take advantage of this trend by producing small-batch, raw, and cultured non-dairy cheese products, offering unique and high-quality options for consumers.
