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.

Just Like Cheddar Slices!

This is my favorite dairy free cheese, sliced and shredded. I have been buying them at Simply Good in Salisbury but now they don’t have the cheddar slices, except mature. Lots of things are out of stock in lots of stores. Shows some people are eating healthier!

I just tried the Parmesan product. It doesn’t taste like the real thing but slices like it. Not too bad. Better than the Feta
It is high in fat and carbs but so is real cheese.
Next I’m going to try melting the cheddar

None of the awkward plastic taste of usual vegan alternatives, Violife Just Like Smoked Provolone has cheese pull and all of the flavor and creaminess you would expect from the udder variety.

I made some awesome mac and cheese with Violife cheddar shreds, rice milk, Earth Balance buttery spread, and a bit of nutritional yeast. Really really really good!!! Excited to try the cheddar slices next.

Violife cheese varieties are the absolute best vegan alternative for both flavor and consistency. They also melt better than any other similar product tried. So glad we accidentally stumbled upon this brand!! A++

The smoked provolone is what has finally allowed me to have many of my old favorite meals that I’ve missed! It’s my favorite slice, no doubt. I did not like the mature cheddar slices, however.

Great substitute

I’ve only tried the cheddar and I love it. Its definitely not as sharp as cheddar, more like a quality American cheese but still very tasty.

This is the best vegan cheese I have had

Violife has come up with the closest thing to dairy cheese that I have tried. The texture is almost spot on, just a bit softer than a slice of dairy cheese would typically be, and the taste is great. I have tried the Mature Cheddar and the Smoked Provolone. I like to snack on the Smoked Provolone by itself and the Mature Cheddar makes a great grilled Cheese. Any vegan who misses cheese will be pleased by these offerings from Violife.
