As people are becoming aware of how terrible dairy products are for your body, as well as for the animals who have to continually produce milk in order to make cheese, there is a growing demand for plant-based alternatives. Cheese is the one of the last animal products people are willing to give up, mostly because of their addiction (due to hormones in the milk itself), and because it’s a comfort food that we’ve all come to rely on. The great news for animal-lovin’ cheese-lovers everywhere is that there are now plenty of delicious plant-based cheeses on the market that will keep any connoisseur happy!
Note that most vegan dairy products are naturally gluten-free (unless otherwise noted), and many are also soy-free!
