I am new to viewing this site, but this might be an answer to prayer! My three year old is now realizing she does not get the foods her sister and brother receive and this will be great if I can make her a pizza or tortilla with "cheese"....

Hi Tricia, Welcome. I can see why you are so concerned. My first thought is to call the company and inquire about their product and manufacturing practices. It could be that the product was made on equipment shared with other products containing...

Does this taste better than your rice cheese? My 2 year old wouldn't eat that. This cheese uses coconut milk, correct?!
2/28/13 8:36 AM
Hi Adrianp! Welcome to KFA! The Daiya cheeses do contain coconut. You can view the ingredients here: http://www.daiyafoods.com/our-products/cheddar-wedge These may not be a choice for your child if you are avoiding...

We found shredded Diaya in chedder and LOVE it! It's not as good if it's not melted, but it tasted great on pizza and macaroni and cheese! I teared up when my three year old had his first taste of macaroni and "cheese". It melts great.

We have used the shredded cheddar and mozarella varieties in a number of recipes, and we love it. Melts great, smells like dairy cheeses, the melted texture is similar to milk-based cheeses, The Jalapeno variety was way too spicy for my...

We recently found the "cheddar" and "jack" daiya wedges at our local Whole Foods and got some for our dairy-allergic child to try. He LOVED them and was super excited to be able to have "cheese".

Tried melting daiya wedge vegan "cheeses" - I put thin slices on bread then toasted in a toaster oven. Looks like it melts well. Views and reviews expressed by volunteers reflect their personal opinions and not necessarily the views or opinions...

I need to check and see if my kids can even have yeast but I was wondering if anyone has tried this with a different flour mix, my kids cannot have rice, which is in the King Arthur mix. Sounds so good and we would love to have a non soy bread or...

Note that this calls for a box of BREAD mix, not just the flour mix. There are other ingredients in there as part of the mix besides just the flour/starch. Here is a PDF of the bread mix label.

This is the bread my son depends on...I've been making it for over 2 years now. We use applesauce to replace the egg, so I guess we could call ours applesauce bread!? Going to try it with sweet potatoes. Sounds yummy!

Hi Kara! That sounds like Oral Allergy Syndrome to me. My dd has OAS. I would consult with your allergist to see if cooked apples are okay or if you should avoid.

Very interesting information. It makes a lot of sense. My kids both have pollen allergies and both have had reactions/sensitivities to some fruits and pine nuts.

Interested to see if anyone has information on two foods not related eg. peanuts and cotton seed oil. From what I have been reading cotton seed oil has the same weight and molecular structure as peanuts.

Thank you so much for this! I have been wanting a "cream of" recipe for the longest time. Can I use regular all purpose flour with this recipe?
