Tasted: Vegusto No moo Piquant Cheese
By Vegan Caroline
Best compared to gruyere this is great enjoyed with a good chutney in a classic sandwich or in a ploughmans.
The Product – I’ve been vegan for over seven years and until the last year I haven’t touched vegan cheese. It’s been available but I haven’t found any that I liked the taste of until now. Suddenly there are several new brands on the market using different ingredients and methods and Vegusto have been at the forefront of these new developments.
The verdict - Vegusto products are more pricey than some other vegan ranges but they are handmade in Switzerland with high quality ingredients – so think of the cheeses as more akin to the sort of Artisan cheeses you’d find on a Farmer’s market. They are a healthier option too as they have 50% less fat than dairy cheeses. The avoidance of soya and the inclusion of ingredients such as coconut oil seem to give these cheeses their great flavour and texture. I’d agree with their claims that this cheese is gruyere like in taste. It also has the advantage of a six month shelf life and it’s freezable. I loved it paired with chutney on good bread. I haven’t missed cheese as a vegan but I’m delighted to have discovered Vegusto!
