February 2012 ~ Lookout! There's a new dairy-free*, soy-free, gluten-free AND vegan cheese alternative preparing for its debut in stores. America’s leading producer of cheese alternatives, Galaxy Nutritional Foods, has officially announced their new line of Vegan Shreds, available Mozzarella and Mexican flavors.
To keep the shreds dairy-, gluten-, and soy-free, Galaxy spent over a year developing the new product, which has a unique cornstarch base that is non-GMO and made without preservatives or added sugars. According to the company, their Vegan Shreds not only taste great, but they also melt and stretch like "the real thing." Of course, we'll be testing the new product and reporting back here on Go Dairy Free as soon as possible.
Galaxy opted to go with a shredded cheese alternative due to demand. More and more people are enjoying the convenience of shredded products when trying to maintain a busy, but healthy life. In fact, shredded cheese product sales are up 32 percent in the past year, and are leaving cheese slices in their dust.
Galaxy’s new Vegan Shred products will be sold in natural food stores throughout the United States beginning in April 2012. For more product information, you can visit www.GalaxyFoods.com.
*Yes, this means casein-free, lactose-free, whey-free, and milk-free! Please keep in mind that Galaxy does have a line of "Veggie" cheese alternatives that do contain dairy. Always look for their "Vegan" label specifically when seeking dairy-free cheese alternatives.
