Daiya Introduces Wedge Cheese

It was a couple of years ago that I first tried Daiya Shreds.  While I don’t have to eat dairy-free, I do try to limit my dairy intake.  Excess lactose seems to irritate me, so dairy-free options always catch my eye.  Daiya has now introduced wedge-style cheese!

The new wedge cheese comes in jack style, cheddar style and havarti style.  More about Daiya:

Daiya products are free of dairy (casein, whey and lactose), soy, gluten, eggs, rice, peanuts and tree nuts (except coconut oil). We have our own production facility which eliminates the chance of cross-contamination with other pesky allergens, making our products 100% vegan.

Cheddar style – Filtered water, tapioca flour, palm fruit oil, non-GMO expeller pressed canola and/or pressed safflower oil, pea protein, coconut oil, salt, inactive yeast, vegetable glycerin, xanthan gum, vegan natural flavours, gum arabic, lactic acid (vegan, for flavor), annatto, titanium dioxide (a naturally occurring mineral), natural smoke flavour, vegan enzyme.

Jack style – Filtered water, tapioca flour, palm fruit oil, non-GMO expeller pressed canola and/or safflower oil, pea protein, coconut oil, inactive yeast, salt, vegetable glycerin, xanthan gum, vegan natural flavours, gum arabic, lactic acid (vegan, for flavor),titanium dioxide (a naturally occurring mineral), natural smoke flavour, vegan enzyme.

Havarti style – Filtered water, tapioca flour, palm fruit oil, non-GMO expeller pressed canola and/or safflower oil, pea protein, coconut oil, salt, inactive yeast, vegetable glycerin, xanthan gum, gum arabic, garlic, lactic acid (vegan, for flavor), vegan natural flavours, titanium dioxide (a naturally occurring mineral), spices, natural smoke flavour, vegan enzyme.

The wedge cheese is ready-to-eat; melting is not necessary, though it can be enjoyed that way as well.  There is a recipe database on the Daiya website full of mouth-watering recipes using the products.  You can specify dietary restrictions on the right hand side of the page to limit the selections to food that you can eat.

While I haven’t tried the new wedge-style Daiya yet, I hope to in the near future.  I did see that my local Earth Fare was now carrying two of the three varieties.  To see where to find the Daiya products in your area, visit the website, scroll down and enter your zip code.

Have you tried the new Daiya wedge-style products?  What did you think?
