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 don’t usually do reviews but I’m so thankful for your amazing product. My daughter has a dairy allergy and this is the only dairy free cheese she likes. She’s very picky. Please put them in more stores. I have to drive pretty far to get it. Thank you

I like the provolone and the feta the best. So delicious. The slices melt pretty well. The feta is too delicious.

Lovely flavour on the provolone and the cheddar. Tastes even better than real cheese. I’m on my third pack of slices and can’t see why I would want to change. So happy I found this in my local Walmart in Canada Lov it!

I have dairy and soy sensitivities and this is the first vegan cheese that I’ve been able to make into a grilled-cheese sandwich. I’ve also used it on turkey burgers. Definitely want to buy again.

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
