Tofutti makes good slices of cheese. they come in either mozzerella or american flavored. and they%26#039;re completely dairy/milk free. it melts really well, if you want it in like mexican food or whatever. and it tastes pretty good.
if you%26#039;re just going to eliminate dairy, but not necessarily go vegan, then there are other kinds of cheese called %26quot;veggie slices%26quot; but it also comes in shredded too. it has a lot more variety of flavors. but it does have casein, a by-product of milk. so, being vegan, i%26#039;ve never tried that kind.
there%26#039;s also this stuff called %26quot;nutritional yeast%26quot;. you just mix it with water and boil it until its thick and creamy. it tastes a lot like cheese and is good as a sauce on pasta. or, you can add salsa to it and make it a very healthy and delicious mexican dip.



hope this helps!!

Because soy, nut, and oils used in cheese substitutes have a light to liquid consistency, most products use potato flakes, potato starch, or cellulose to give the %26quot;cheese%26quot; a harder consistency and similar texture to true cheese. Many soy cheese products also contain sodium casinate, oils, particularly partially hydrogenated soybean oil, although some manufacturers are gradually phasing these oils out and using ready-made tofu, isolated soy proteins and nondairy lactic acid. Some preservatives and sugars (sugar and maltodextrin) are also present in some brands. So top line C read those ingredient labels carefully.

Varieties:
Imitation Cheese: %26quot;Imitation%26quot; cheese looks like cheese, has a similar texture, but is usually primarily made from partially hydrogenated oils that may be a detriment if fat consumption is a concern.

Soy Cheese: Made from soybeans, these veggie cheeses are lighter in texture and difficult to use in dishes that require melting, but make great additions to sandwiches or salads. Soy cheese is available in the style of plain or in cream cheese, cheddar, mozzarella cheeses and other hard cheese flavors.

Almond and Other Nut Milks are used to make some cheeses that are bland and slightly nutty sweet.

When I%26#039;m tasting (and judging) a cheese substitute C here%26#039;s what I look for:

* Low sodium
* No or low sugars added
* Tastes like natural cheese C not over flavored
* Melts well
* Not rubbery

BRANDS:
* Tofutti
* Galaxy Nutritional Foods

I buy an organic non hormone raise dairy milk cheddar like cheese and they use wild nettle leaves to sour the milk, not the rennet most others do, it is a good vegetarian cheese, and I have found with the soya cheese as they lack the fat dairy one have to have them melt better, mix the grated or chopped cheese with a small amount of veg oil this helps them melt better and brown slightly.

I am a former chef and now a lacto-ovo vegetarian, and have tried a number of these products in a number of country%26#039;s.

Try to find organic %26quot;raw%26quot; cheeses... you will find them in gourmet specialty stores... most will come from small dairies and some from other countries like France... the idea is that these will NOT be pasteurized/sterilized to the point where the milk cultures are dead and all you would get is a bunch of mucous.

You can still have dairy, but make sure it specifies that it is organic and %26quot;rBST-free%26quot; or something along those lines.

If you find you really are sensitive to dairy, consider the various nut cheeses... literally small packs of cheese made from almonds or other nuts. There are various nut milks available on the market too... I like the vanilla almond milk. They are great. You can make your own nut milks, cheeses, sauces and spreads using a high-powered blender and a strainer.

Stay away from soy products, including soy cheeses %26amp; milks, because soy is a endocrine disruptor... it will put your thyroid flat on its back, then mess up every other hormone you have while blocking your intake of most vitamins and minerals.

I don%26#039;t%26#039; know if you can get it outside of the US, but a product that goes by the name of VEGAN RELLA is a great substitute for mozzarella cheese. It is great on crackers, especially if you heat it up. It seems to taste better after it is heated, in my opinion. Has a creamy consistancy when heating in the microwave oven. So, it tends to take care of the %26quot;comfort food%26quot; craving that many of us have leftover from out childhoods of consuming dairy products. Soy Yoghurt is also a good replacement for the old standard dairy-based products.
