Cheesy Boof! Yes... daiya is GF


Many Celiacs suffer from Lactose Intolerance either as a pre-cursor to living gluten-free and/or live with it everyday. If you are anyone like myself, you appreciate some fresh and melted cheese to compliment many other foods and it's important to find options that won't agitate your digestion.

I recently sampled daiya, cheddar style shreds, from Whole Foods-Cheery Creek Denver and found out quite surprisingly how nice it was for a dairy alternative... With a pleasant, fresh aroma and when melted it was near comparison to shredded cheese I thought. There was no awkward after taste or bad fake smell and taste. My two tastings were on a onion, tomato, pepper and broccoli omelet with shreds + hot salsa along with pasta, I was quite a happy boy!

Free of most common allergens such as: Soy, Dairy (Casein, Lactose), Gluten, Egg, Wheat, Barley, Whey and Nuts, daiya provides a fantastic cheese shred and some new products to look out for in the future. Also note that it is good in the fridge for 7-10 days once opened. For more detailed information and where to buy daiya check out their website. Enjoy!!!

Keep in mind my ratings are for those who are open to food, tastings and alternative eating :)

Recommend to Celiacs: 4 out of 5
Recommend to Dairy Free: 4.5 out of 5
Recommend to Anyone: 3 out of 5
