New Food Find: Follow Your Heart Creates Cheese Free of Dairy, Soy and Peas

NewCheesesolo

 

Up until now, people allergic to dairy and two legumes – soy and peas – have been out of luck when it comes to non-dairy cheese alternatives, as current products have either one of the two beans in them. Follow Your Heart has come to the rescue with four flavors of cheese for people allergic to all three foods.


The flavors, styled after American, Provolone, Mozzarella, and Garden Herb, are vegan, gluten free, dairy free, soy free and non-GMO. The base of the cheese is made from coconut oil, modified food starch made from corn, and potato starch.

 

As of now, the cheeses are sold at Whole Foods; a company representative said they expect to expand distribution to other stores by mid-year. The cheeses come in blocks and slices; in addition, the American and Provolone come in snack size portions.

So I'm looking at this and thinking it may be something to trial a little with my son this summer. We know potato and coconut are doable.

 

Would the extracts have a lot of proteins in them? And food starch is usually a corn source, right? OMG I just realized he may be able to try this! Also heard it may be right at our S&S
