Miyoko is well known for her nutty dairy-free artisan cheeses with short ingredient lists, but she’s vying for a bigger audience with her latest product collection. Miyoko’s Cultured Vegan Cheese is initially launching in everyday slices and shreds, with blocks on the way, and is more of a formula-based cheese alternative. In line with the trends, it’s nut-free and boasts oat milk, legumes, and coconut oil as key ingredients.
As you can see, Miyoko has removed the word “cheese” from the label of her latest product line, but she’s still in a battle with the California Ag Department over the use of “dairy” words. And quite frankly, we aren’t sure what else to call it besides vegan cheese alternative! Cultured vegan doesn’t really get the picture across.
Miyoko’s Cultured Vegan Cheese Slices its way into the Mainstream
According to Miyoko, these cheese alternatives are made for melting and taste similar to their dairy counterparts. They’re intended to perform perfectly in quesadillas, grilled cheese sandwiches, and on pizza! But you be the judge. Leave your review and rating below once you’ve bought and tried this product.

What Others Are Saying ...
Not all Organic
Too much chemicals . Probly better ingredients than other vegan cheese but not like your originals. I won’t be buying only your organic su dried tomatoes cheese and others and butter and cream cheese originals make it best less ingredients thankyou
Delicious pepper jack cheese
I couldn’t believe how good the pepper jack was…amazing!! I finally get to taste cheese I like again.
Pepper Jack and Garlic Parm are mind-blowing
Both Cheeses are fantastic. They have the taste, melt, mouthfeel of dairy cheese. I liked the Pepper Jack best. Made a plain grilled cheese and one with fig jam. Sensational. Garlic Parm makes the best garlic bread.
