Cultivating Cheesy Goodness
With every delicious bite of our plant-based cheese, you're not just treating your taste buds; you're giving your gut the love it deserves.
Billions of Live Probiotics
We cultivate cheesy goodness and healthy diversity in the gut with the lively fermentation of cashews. Each serving of Nuts For Cheese™ contains billions of gut-healthy live probiotics. When we eat foods that make us feel good, we can do good and thrive.
The Art of Fermentation
Fermentation is an extra special way of safely preserving foods without additives and is an essential step in our cheesemaking process to make deliciously tangy and gut-friendly cashew cheese.
Unlike pasteurization, which involves heat, fermentation harnesses the power of bacteria, yeast, and molds to break down complex compounds to create a probiotic wonderland that's both tasty and good for your gut.
While pasteurization effectively kills harmful bacteria, it also eliminates all the good stuff, including probiotics. Fermented foods, on the other hand, like our fermented cashew cheeses, cream cheeses and butters, are packed with live cultures that actively contribute to a balanced gut.
Probiotics, beneficial live bacteria, contribute to a balanced microbiome. They do a lot of the heavy lifting to enhance gut flora, aid digestion, and strengthen the immune system. Probiotics play a vital role in supporting digestion, nutrient absorption, and immune system function. Each serving of Nuts For Cheese™ has billions of live CFUs, giving it the probiotic power of another fermented food star, kefir. Through proprietary research, we’ve confirmed that Nuts For Cheese™ fermented cashew products contain a variety of probiotics from lactic acid bacteria to weisella.
Probiotic Strains naturally occurring in Nuts For Cheese™: Lactobacillus, Pediococcus, Weisella, Leuconostoc, Lactococcus
Your microbiome, a bustling community of trillions of microbes, holds the key to your overall well-being. The vast majority of these microbes are located in the gut, and help support healthy digestion, immunity, and more. The cornerstone of a joyful microbiome lies in diversity.
