Daiya Cutting Board Shreds are the Dairy-Free Cheese that Melts

0

Many people don’t realize that Daiya Foods came out with a second line of dairy-free cheese shreds a couple of years ago. Don’t worry, their classic shreds are still available. They met with too much backlash when they underwent formula changes previously, so they decided to keep those around and leave them as is. But they’ve added Daiya Cutting Board Shreds to their product line, which have a very different formula, and are being adopted by a lot of restaurants.

The packaging of the two dairy-free cheese shred lines is very similar. But the Cutting Board Shreds have a food image on the front and a “Cutting Board” label on the top of the package.

Daiya Cutting Board Shreds are the Dairy-Free Cheese that Melts

We tried Daiya Cutting Board Shreds and were impressed with the “melt.” They get quite ooey and gooey atop nachos, pasta, pizza, and more, but are a little sticky too.

Unlike their Classic Shreds, Daiya Cutting Board Shreds are also made without pea protein. So they are a better option for most with a peanut allergy who have cross-reactivity issues.

The flavor seemed on par with their Classic Shreds for us. Both tasted good, in small doses. We found that using a light hand when sprinkling added enough cheesy flavor without overwhelming the dish. But tell us what you think! Once you’ve tried them, leave your own rating and review below.

Good but a little sticky and hard to find

My husband and I really enjoyed these shreds. We thought the flavors were great and they really did melt! My only complaint was that it is very sticky. And if you use a lot, it can overwhelm. Use a light hand when sprinkling it on for the first time. It’s also hard to find. Most stores in my area carry the classic Daiya shreds, but the Cutting Board ones aren’t usually available.

I have tried all of their products and I LOVE them. They have opened up a whole new menu for me and my family. There were so many things that I could never have but now I can. It even taste good enough that my non-allergy, cheese eating family members will eat what I cook with Diaya. LOVE it.
