Daiya Cheese!

Recommended Posts

We were at the Health Food Store last week and I asked about a cheese that was gluten, dairy and soy-free. She said they had just ordered some called Daiya and would call when it came in. The store called the other day, so I went and got it. I used it for the first time today and it was pretty good!! I made grilled cheese. Used Kinnikinnick Brown Bread and Daiya Cheddar. The boys loved it and I have to say it satisfied a craving I've had for a while! Now I have to get some more pizza crust, so I can try the mozzarella!

What's it made of? Their site doesn't list ingredients. I have restrictions that go beyond dairy and soy and it would be nice to have some kind of "cheese" again.

I had it on a pizza last night. Not bad. Not the same as regular mozzarella, but it'll do. :)

Ok so I just bought some. Made nachos. It's REALLY salty. Smells fantastic, but you can't use salty chips if you're making nachos. It just overpowers you.

That said though, the stuff is fantastic. Smells greatttt and I love it. <3 YAYYYY.

Suffered years of brain fog, back spasms, nausea, and recurring connective tissue pain and injuries. After years of misdiagnosis, I did my own elimination diet and discovered a severe reaction to wheat gluten and casein. After going on a grain free, nightshade free, Paleo-ish diet, my symptoms are nearly gone, and I FINALLY KICKED THE BRAIN FOG!

Cheers to health! <3
