Has anyone found a good brand of Soy Cheese that is Casein free? My son just grew out of his soy allergy (YEAH!) but still has the milk protein allergy which makes it hard to find a soy cheese.
Thanks

I had the same probelm for a long time ... then I found some Tofutti cheese slices (like Kraft slices) at the Sunterra Market here in Calgary. My son is already 10 though, and he hated them. They really weren't that bad though..

Eating soy cheese is what triggered my son's first really bad allergic reaction when he was 1. We knew he was allergic to milk, but I didn't read the label because a friend had recommended it :oops:

We're featuring Daiya "shreds" in the forthcoming Fall issue of Allergic Living.

Really good 'fake' cheese - no dairy, no soy.
See http://www.daiyafoods.com/index.html

Thank you. Now I can research those brands further and hopefully my little grocery store will order them for me. I just like to hear of brands that people have bought in the past that worked for them before having them ordered in.
Thanks again.

We use the "Vegan" brand for my DD. They look and smell like cheese and both my kids love them.

You've got to make sure that you buy "Vegan" because they do have some products with casein, but they reassured me when I called that the Vegan products aren't exposed to dairy proteins.

The "parmesan" is good on pasta, and you can shred the block cheese and it sorta melts...

Just bought Daiya cheese on the weekend. It lives up to its hype! It tastes great and melts as promised. I have to start looking at recipes with cheese now! Mac and cheese here we come! I noticed on their web site that it is available now in many more stores and that some vegan restaurants are starting to use it.

Finally a Vegan cheese that does NOT contain vinegar. :banana
Anyone with a Corn allergy, may react though, as it does contain xanthan gum.
But, the best news of all, I can actually BUY it in my state! Even, in a tiny town I used to go to every summer. :happydance :thanksign To say, I'm exstatic, is an understatement, as I have been looking for Vegan vinegar-free cheese for a very long time.
