Collection: Nuts For Cheese

Welcome to the Cutting Wedge

 

Some People Love Cheese;

We're Nuts For Cheese!

Our mission is to create delicious, 100% dairy-free & vegan cheese for cheese lovers everywhere.

Our Story

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!

Handcrafted

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.

The Wedge

From there our creamy cashew cheese wheels are sliced into wedges. Each wedge is lovingly packaged in our distinctive triangle box and sent on its way to a store near you.

Our Ingredients

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.

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.

Probiotic Power

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
