Going dairy-free, have milk allergy, need milk-free shredded cheese?
For years, we have enjoyed these cheese shreds.
And now Daiya has both a classic version plus a cutting board collection.
See ingredients and fun cheesy recipes below!
My goodness, this is definitely the number topic of discussion at Milk Allergy Mom…
for over 10 years, lol.
What cheese for dairy-free pizza?
What cheese for dairy-free lasagna?
What cheese for potato skins?
I hear ya, friend.
It’s hard to imagine life without cheese.
So when milk allergy becomes part of life,
what’s a good mama to do but find safe cheese! 🙂
And I have good news for you.
Our milk allergy family of 14 years eats all these goodies: pizza, lasagna, and nachos…
and we have dairy-free cheese we like!
Here’s Why We Like Daiya
1. It was the first dairy-free shredded cheese we could try.
2. They are easy to find in our town.
3. Even our non-allergic family members like it in moderation.
4. The new Cutting Board Collection melts well.
In fact, there’s a new local, build-your-own pizza restaurant here in my town,
and they carry Daiya for a dairy-free option!
We love eating there, now. Just gotta be careful with the cross contamination.
If you’re wondering how these shreds compare to real cheese,
I always say use dairy-free cheese shreds in moderation.
Our general rule of thumb is use up to half of what we’d use with real shredded cheese.
The point isn’t to have the ooey gooey texture of real cheese.
The point is to have a subtle taste of cheese, in my opinion.
Daiya Shreds Flavors
We have found these in both the original version and the cutting board version.
Different stores carry different versions.
You may prefer one over the other and will need to figure out where you can find it.
