The only place I can find it is Walmart. We donít do any grocery shopping there. Maybe, if the world ever starts turning again Iíll be able to try it.

I have looked into it before but the potato kept me from trying it.  It looks promising, and someone in my local allergy group recommended it.

Has anyone tried https://violifefoods.com/en_ca/ ?

It appears safe, even for my allergens. (Does have potato starch is some, not sure about all.) Since I donít think itís available at either of the stores I shop at I havenít really looked into it to much. Just thought others might be interested.

Please be careful with Daiya products if you have a milk allergy. Not all of their products are made in a milk-free facility. They have great customer service and can tell you which ones are made in a shared facility, and shared lines, if you call. (The shreds themselves are okay, last I checked... but they added potato - gah!)

Found frozen Diaya pizzas on sale this week.  Have not tried them yet, but next time we order pizza, I get to have some with "cheese" too!

The store we do trunk drops since pandemic started does not sell Daiya. Since we had to go to a different store this week I picked up a few. Cheddar block and shredded mozzarella.

Tried the block today to make some grilled cheese sandwiches, and also cut a small piece to just eat.

The colour was very good, as was the smell. It smelled like cheddar cheese. The taste...not perfect, but not bad. Usually I put a bit of garlic salt on my grilled cheese, but I wanted to try this without it. It needs flavours added. But I can see using it on nachos, tacos, or pizza. Well....the mozzarella cheese for the pizza.

Go Dairy Free has a lot of reviews of substitute cheese based on what you need it for.  Obviously some don't work with nut allergies.

If shared lines are an issue, give Daiya a call. They can tell you which items are made in their dedicated top-10-Free facility and which are made on shared lines or in a shared facility. They donít always label for those.

My husband likes Daiya shreds (mozzarella, cheddar, pepper jack) baked on pizzas, nachos, or toast. I donít think it is something anyone would want to eat raw, though.

I have a vegetable and tofu (or some sort of nut) based cheesy sauce we use on pasta is you want the recipe.

Searched and there was nothing recent.

Is there a good cheese substitute? One that labels well for other allergens.

I am not allergic to dairy, but Symptoms from my dairy intolerance is extreme.
