If you can have soy, I believe there's soemthing called Vegan Slices (or Soymage maybe?)

You can try chreese (www.chreese.com)

Or...

You can try to make raw vegan cheese with cashews (I don't have a recipe on hand but I know there are some on this board)

Thanks :) We arent avoiding soy yet, just dairy and gluten. I dont give her nuts too much but I'll search for the recipe for future use. I'll look for vegan slices and chreese today as I'm going to our local health food store. This is mainly for my daughter but my husband does like some cheese for pizza.

there are new vegan rice slices out that are soy, gluten and casein free. i've only found the slices so far and for satisfying the cheese cravings they're okay but my husband (no food allergies) took one bite and said no way :lol: they are made by Galaxy foods and i found them at my whole foods.

Here's a link to a previous discussion. Someone posted a TON of Gluten-free Casein-free cheese recipes here about a year ago, but I can't remember who it was, maybe AndreaB???? I'm just guessing.

There's still a chance at REAL cheese.

A great many people w/ casein problems are better classified as having cow's milk casein problems, allowing goat & sheep.

I had a fantastic Dutch Goat Gouda awhile back, yum. Not sure if it's easily determined besides eat & hope tho.

we like tofutti cheese (sour cream and cream cheese too tofutti), it is soy and tofu.....I haven't been able to find any other cheeses near me that are casein free. I seen some of the vegan ones but then casein is still listed as an ingredient...how do they get away with calling them vegan.....stay away from veggie cheese it has casein in it.

I believe that to legally call something VEGAN it cannot have any part coming from an animal. At least that is what I have been told and have found to be true. The Casein found in Vegan products is vegetable based. I think from beets?? I have no idea how that works, but Vegan cheese even with the vegetable Casein has not caused a problem for us. My child reacts to the lactic acid starter cultures found in other products, so I think she is pretty sensitive.
