0

You can technically buy Violife Vegan Cheese Blocks any time of year. They come in Mature Cheddar and Smoked Cheddar. But around Thanksgiving, Violife’s EPIC cheese platter appears with a trio of dairy-free cheddars. It includes the Mature, Smoked, and a special Garlic & Chilli flavor, and it comes in a rather hefty one pound package.

More Allergen Notes

Regarding dairy ingredients, please note that we do share lines in some parts of the production process. However, we clean our equipment VERY meticulously, with multiple allergen swab testings to confirm absence of cross-contamination with dairy. Furthermore, production samples are sent to an accredited lab for allergen analysis. Our results are consistently negative for the presence of any dairy allergens.

Please note though that testing for absence of any dairy allergen is conducted as mentioned via multiple swab testing with a 0.4ppm* sensitivity after the weekend full cleaning. Once negative results are achieved our vegan production can commence Monday morning. We must stress that a negative result at 0.4ppm means that there is no dairy allergens present in concentration above that point.

*PPM = part per million, or less than 0.4 mg allergen in 1 Kg of product, or less than 0.01 mg in 20gr (1 slice) of product. 1mg = One thousandth of a gram.

As stated, the aforementioned allergens are not detectable by our testing; we guarantee that there are no allergens above our testing thresholds. We have never had an issue and we export globally.
