Yes, Forager Project cheese is free of lactose, gluten, and soy.
Yes, just like all of our ingredients, the cultures we use are strictly vegan.
Yes, our vegan cheeses do melt! Keep in mind, different flavors are designed for different eating occasions. While our Vegan Jack and Vegan Mozzarella can be used in nearly every form, our Vegan Parmesan and Vegan Queso Fresco cheese generally perform better crumbled or shredded. We recommend heating our cheese to see its incredible melt and stretch. For recipes on how to best cook our vegan cheese or general vegan cooking inspiration, check out our recipes page.
Forager Project Vegan Cheese should be stored in the refrigerator. Once you’ve opened the cheese, you can store it in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. To best preserve the cheese, rewrap chunks or place in a bag. We recommend storing at less than 40°F in a clean and sanitary refrigerator.
