Galaxy Nutritional Foods Announces New Vegan and Soy-Free Shredded Cheese Alternative


Galaxy Nutritional Foods - Vegan Shredded Cheese Alternative - Dairy-Free, Soy-FreeFebruary 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

  1. I love this cheese and so glad that it is GMO Free unlike a very popular competitor.Make sure you get the purple packaging that has “Vegan” on the top right corner for those who need dairy free. I emailed the other company to find out if they are GMO Free, since it doesn’t say on their packaging, a couple of months ago and I still haven’t heard from them..This cheese is cheaper in price and melts better than the other company too!

  2. I always buy the “newest” cheese alternative when I see one at the store. So of course I purchased these, not really expecting much. My son and I tried these last night nd we were blown away. Melts, really melts, not globs into gelatinous masses. Tastes amazing. My son begged me to buy it by the case and freeze it. So good!
