(Vegan-) Cheese as alternative

It’s time, for this year’s Week Without Meat campaign. But this year, it’s not just about meat – it’s also about dairy. The “Week without Meat and Dairy” runs from March 6 to March 12. This national week was created to promote a flexitarian diet, in which meat and dairy are alternated with vegetarian and plant-based alternatives. Choosing to skip meat or dairy for a day is a small effort that has a huge positive impact on people, animals, and the environment. By doing so, you can reduce greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change and save water. For instance, cheese can be a great meat substitute, or even vegan cheese.

“Week without Meat”

If an adult doesn’t eat meat for one week, they’ll save an average of 770 grams of animal meat. Giving up meat is the most effective way to reduce your carbon footprint. There’s been an enormous growth in vegetarian meat, such as vegetarian meat substitutes and meat alternatives like cheese or vegetable burgers. Cheese snacks, for example, are more popular than ever. Do you love cheese croquettes, cheese soufflés, chili cheese nuggets, mozzarella sticks, or cheese straws? And did you know that these snacks can also be made with vegan cheese?

“Week without dairy”

Say cheese to vegan cheese! Just as more and more people are choosing plant-based alternatives for meat, the same goes for cheese and dairy! Vegan cheese, also known as plant-based cheese, is becoming a huge food trend and is set to grow massively. There is a real market for it and people are becoming increasingly curious. Plant-based cheese is a dairy-free cheese intended for vegans and other people who want to avoid animal products or those who are lactose intolerant. Plant-based cheese contains 100% natural (plant-based) ingredients.

There is a lot to be gained in terms of integrity when it comes to making plant-based cheese. It is, of course, a “fake product” based on real cheese. The inspiration comes from cheese, but the texture and taste are different. To make plant-based (melting) cheese, you need the right raw materials. The taste must be good, as well as the melting properties and usability. It may take some getting used to the taste and texture of vegan cheese if you’re used to real cheese, but it can be a good option if you’re looking for an alternative to animal products.

This week is a great opportunity to explore the world of plant-based cheese and discover all the delicious options that are available.
