For so many people, there is just something special about grating fresh cheese over a dish. Dairy-free consumers have been able to join in on the fun for years. We have cheddar and mozza blocks galore. But those hard cheese alternatives are much more difficult to come by. Fortunately, Violife Vegan Parmesan Wedges are gaining rapid distribution, not only in the U.S, but worldwide!

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.

From what I can remember it’s EXTREMELLY close! Granted I haven’t had cheese in over 5 years but it’s not overly salty and has great ingredients!
Just like the real thing
I found out 5 1/2 years ago I was allergic to dairy (casein). It has been a struggle finding dairy substitutes that taste and act like the real thing in recipes. This is perfect. It shreds very well and is not overly salty like some other brands of pre-shredded substitutes I have found in the past. I used it for eggplant Parmesan and my husband and stepson never new the difference. They thought I made mine separate and theirs with the real thing (which is what I used to do). Highly recommend this product.
We love all the Violife cheeses! The Parmesan especially tastes pretty close to the real thing. We buy it at Better Health.
Tastes great grated
We grated this on pizza today and it was phenomenal. Even my dairy-eating husband and son enjoyed it. The texture was just right and it didn’t have an after taste like so many dairy-free cheeses do.
It's pretty good
It does the job I guess. A little stinky when grated. I wouldn’t put too much on, it might over power the food. A decent substitute.
