Vegan cheese made from cashew and almonds

Vegan cheese is a non-dairy or plant cheese analogue aimed at vegans and other people who want to avoid animal products, including those who are lactose-intolerant.[1] As with plant milk, vegan cheese can be made from cashews, sesame seeds, soybeans, coconut oil, rice, almonds and other nuts, and nutritional yeast.

Vegan cheese is cholesterol-free and may be a good source of soy protein[2]. Several brands melt in the way dairy cheese does. Popular brands include Sheese (a Scottish brand), Biocheese, Violife, Cheezly, Daiya, Teese and Tofutti.
