More Allergen Notes

We received the following very detailed and helpful information from a Violife representative about their dairy allergen protocols.

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 have never had an issue and we export globally.

I love love love violife cheeses and a plus they melt really well. I was so happy when i found a local pizzeria ising it yo make vegan pizza. My family owned several pizzerias growing up and pizza was truly the one thing i have missed (over the past 20 or so years) the most about being lactose intollerant…. Its so wonderful to enjoy great pizza again…

Violife cheese is the closest in taste that you’ll find to “real” cheese.
Love the cheddar slices for grilled cheese, provolone slices on grilled hamburgers, use the shredded cheese for lasagna, tacos, salads.

We recently tried both the cheddar and mozzarella shreds. Both are quite delicious. We also bought the triangle of Parmesan. It’s yummy too and pretty close to the real cheese.

I purchased the mozzarella cheese shreds after my aunt introduced me to them. The cheese has an excellent mozzarella flavor fresh out of the bag. Having never tried a cheese substitute before I was pleasantly surprised. The kids even liked it. We used it to top our pizzas. It doesn’t brown or stretch like dairy mozzarella but still makes for a delicious topping.

This is the closest thing I have found to true cheese. Great flavor, melts (but at a higher temperature), no weird texture. This has become my go to for cheese.

This has become our favorite cheese substitute. My son has loved another brand but has become sensitive to tapioca starch. I like the flavors of these. Still a fake cheese, and not the real thing, but we enjoy the texture and I like the mild taste of the mozzarella. So glad to have this option!
