Welcome to the Culture Behind the Cheese
About Nuts For Cheese™
Some People Love Cheese;
We're Nuts For Cheese!
Our mission is to create delicious, 100% dairy-free & vegan cheese for cheese lovers everywhere.
Nuts For Cheese™ was born in 2015 at a farmer's market in London, Ontario out of a passion to create and share delicious, plant-based cheeses with others. What started as a solo venture has grown into a dedicated team helping to craft a line of artisanal dairy-free products that are now available across Canada (and beyond).
From one cheese lover to another, we invite you to join us on this journey!VIEW OUR JOURNEY
We believe that intentionally-crafted foods made to taste absolutely delicious have the power to bring people together, to elevate me-time moments, and to turn every snacking occasion into a celebration.
An Artisanal Journey
Using traditional cheesemaking techniques, we start by handcrafting our cashew based cheese wheels from organic cashews and fermenting with house made cultures. So while our products are aged, they are also very much alive, making our tastebuds and microbiomes happy.
Wheels of Love
Each cheese wheel enjoys its unique journey through our Cheesequarters, some have a blend of homemade sauces or fresh herbs and spices and others have hand painted rinds. Once ready, our wheels are aged to perfection.
From there our creamy cashew cheese wheels are sliced into wedges. Just like cheese was meant to be. Each wedge is lovingly packaged in our distinctive triangle box and sent on its way to a store near you.
Crafted from creamy, craveable cashews and rich in probiotics, our organic, vegan cheeses are made with the finest, whole food ingredients, without cutting corners. That means no starches, no gums, no fillers…ever. A dairy-free cheese that tastes good and makes you feel good too. Now that’s nuts.
Our creamy, craveable cashews are the star of the show. We use organic cashews to make our homemade cashew milk; the luscious base for our dairy-free cheese. Rich in healthy fats, protein, and minerals, we are nutty about cashews because their neutral flavor provides the perfect base for our many cheese varieties and their natural oils give our cheese’s their velvety and decadent mouthfeel.
Organic Coconut Oil
Coconut oil helps give our cheese their distinctive soft and creamy texture. Coconut oil is a versatile, plant-based oil extracted from the meat of mature coconuts. Coconut Oil is made up of fatty acids and is praised for its potential health benefits, including supporting good cholesterol levels, skin health and immune function.
Organic Quinoa Rejuvelac
Rejuve-huh? Our organic quinoa rejuvelac is what ferments our homemade cashew milk. This probiotic-rich liquid acts as a natural starter, giving our cheese its creamy consistency and unique tangy flavor notes. Making our cultures from scratch, rather than using pre-made, adds a few days to our process, but we believe it is part of the secret sauce that makes our cheese unbelievably tasty and gut healthy.
Packed with essential nutrients, nutritional yeast brings a cheesy, nutty flavor. It also a good source of B12 and contains all nine essential amino acids, making it a complete protein, like those found in animal products (although you know we’re only about plants here!).
A fermented paste made from chickpeas, salt, and koji culture. As a soy-free alternative to traditional miso, Chickpea Miso brings a savory, umami-rich flavor.
