List of Vegan Cheeses Available in Australia

My husband has recently gotten his health checked and it came back (unsurprisingly) that he can no longer eat dairy.  But he loves cheese – oh how he loves cheese!  So I was quite surprised when I found out that you can actually buy Vegan Cheese, that is dairy-free cheese!  Now I’m about to go on the journey now to try them all out!  I feel like I’ve been living under a rock because I didn’t know about this!

SAVE MONEY

On top of that, when I visited Sydney just this last weekend there was a Vegan rally in the Sydney CBD – now this is a topic I don’t want to get into – I have farmers in my family and my area which I totally support, but let’s not talk about that.  The thing is, I’m certainly open to trying new foods, and I’m excited to eat loads of cheese #winning.  So here are the different types of cheeses I found, most are pretty widely available in most Supermarkets, other are a bit fancier and can only be bought online (with cold packs).

My Life Bio-Cheese

How much does it cost?

This stuff ain’t cheap (of course pretty much any specialised food is quite expensive!

For a standard 200 gram Cheddar Block – pricing was:

Woolworths $6.00

Honest Reviews via Product Review.com.au:

  • ‘It doesn’t really melt but I love it on crackers and sandwiches’
  • ‘Tricky to melt, but it melts better than many competitors.  Tastes a bit like… Edam? More than cheddar.’
  • ‘I love this cheese but the weight of the pack has gone down from 250 grams to 200 grams so I will not buy it any more as it is too expensive and will start making my own.’
