Sounds good to me, can you recommend any good brands? I really like the taste and texture of Gouda but I’ve never tried any vegan cheese before

Violife one is the best one I’ve tasted. Not too strong like a lot of vegan cheeses

I only ever had the violife cheese slices and sheese mozarella-I thought they were just okay, nothing special, I'm not a big fan of cheese in the first place so probably not the best person to ask. But I hope some other tsr vegans can help out. Sorry that I'm of no use. But I heard the daiya cheese is meant to be good, but haven't had it myself.

Thank you, I’ll try out these brands. Finding vegan alternatives to dairy that I like is proving a challenge

Daiya cheese is the best one I've tried so far. Also Tesco do their own brand with jalapenos & chilli in it which I like. Violife is OK as well.

We call it vile-life because it tastes vile. It has a background vanillery/coconutty taste that tastes OK on first trying it, but then becomes rather sickly the more you eat.

IMO the best vegan alternative to cheese is Tyne Chease

However it is £££

Never mind, got a bit confused with labels. The levels are actually pretty similar so neither is particularly healthy. If you are worried about saturated fat though, have a look at cheese by a brand called "eatlean".

Have you tried the FYH style Gouda slices?
https://www.planetorganic.com/follow...es-200g/25142/

My dairy allergic best friend loves vegan Gouda.
She also gets koko soft cream cheese alternative, new roots soft camembert, vbites mozzarella slices and fit food smoked vegan deli slices.

I mostly eat vegan cheese to avoid putting on weight and have dairy as a treat or for a special occasion.
Violife is ok as pizza cheese but not a great tasting substitute for someone who can safely eat the dairy versions.
If you are interested in getting to know all vegan cheeses most supermarkets have vegan cheese as part of their free from ranges.
I've bought vegan cheese from asda, tesco, ocado and sainsbury's.
The planet organic vegan range is vast but pricey.

Compare the vegan (top) with the normal cheese (bottom)
I don’t really know how you can say they’re similar?

The normal cheese has 6.5g per slice to the vegan cheeses 3.8g per slice? It’s nearly half as much less?
