Parma! Vegan Parmesan is Sold in Classic, Spicy, Garlicky & Bacon Flavors

7

It’s so hard for me to believe that I first reviewed Parma! Vegan Parmesan ten years ago. Unlike so many small businesses, this one has persisted, probably due to the tasty simplicity of their wholesome products.

Since I first tasted it, the formula of Parma! Vegan Parmesan has changed a bit. Back in the olden days, they used just raw organic walnuts, nutritional yeast (the cheesy component), and sea salt. They’ve since added raw organic sunflower seeds and raw organic hemp seeds to the blend. It’s been met with rave reviews and is reportedly a good fit for popcorn now (the only application where it didn’t quite fit for me – the walnuts alone were a little too heavy).

Parma! Vegan Parmesan is a classic dairy-free cheese substitute that has been loved for over a decade! Wholesome, gluten-free, soy-free.

Parma! Vegan Parmesan Adds Classic, Spicy, Garlicky, or Bacon Flavor

Sold in a handy shaker, Parma! Vegan Parmesan has a texture that is somewhat similar to finely grated Parmesan, but the overall look strays a bit further from the norm. But, don’t let the image fool you. This whole food topper packs a unique cheesy punch that will liven up any mundane meal. And each shaker lasts longer than you might expect, even when generously sprinkled.

As a side note, Parma! uses fortified nutritional yeast, so their Parmesan cheese alternative is stocked with B vitamins, including vitamin B12.

Can’t tell you how much I love these vegan cheeses. I made my sister buy some so we could tell each other what we liked and after trying them for the first time, we were both hooked!!!!

Don’t let the simplicity fool you. This whole food creation has a wonderful grated texture and a flavor that isn’t really Parmesan, yet stands in for it nicely in most dishes. Though different, its cheesy vibe is undeniable, adding a fulfilling punch to dairy-free pizzas, pasta, baked potatoes, and more.

  2. Where’s your shipping cost??? I’d like to try it but need to know shipping first. Thanks.

  3. This is our new favorite store-bought DF Parmesan. Just put some on popcorn yesterday. 🙂 It’s finally available near where we live. And yes, I can’t believe how long a bottle lasts!

    • This product does use similar ingredients to the recipe in my book, and I would consider them close. I can’t say the exact formula that they use though.
