FACTS

Is it healthy ?

What IS It made from ?

How does it compare to dairy ?

Some people may think that if something is vegan it is automatically healthy; unfortunately, that’s not the case. Many plant-based products, including vegan cheeses, are made with processed & artificial ingredients, as well as oils. Some of the non-dairy options on the market are pretty much just flavored oils mixed with artificial ingredients to thicken it up. However, there is hope. If you are wondering – “Is vegan cheese healthy?” – then we are pleased to inform you that yes, there are some great healthy options available!

PLANT Perks Vegan Cheezes have

an average of ~19% LESS saturated fat
than their dairy counterparts
as well as ZERO cholesterol

Plant Perks Smoked Gouda Vegan Cheese made from nearly 50% cashews

WHAT IS
HEALTHY VEGAN CHEESE
MADE OF?

CASHEWS!

There may be multiple answers to that question if you’re looking at all available products in the marketplace– but in our case, cashews are what we make our vegan cheeze out of (along with natural and organic ingredients). We blend the Fair-Trade Cashews into a super smooth cream, then build upon that to create all of our deliciously creamy flavors. Better yet, our products are completely OIL-FREE!

After years of trying a little of this and a little of that, we found the perfect process! Our method allow us to deliver an equally as satisfying texture and flavor profile as dairy, which many people have grown to adore throughout their lifetime.

It’s amazing what plants can do when handled properly!

DAIRY CHEESE VS.

PLANT PERKS CASHEW CHEEZE

When you compare Plant Perks’ Plant-Based Cashew Cheeze to its dairy counterparts, it becomes very evident that the answer to the question “Is vegan cheese healthy?” is YES! Not only is vegan cheese much more healthy for animals– as it doesn’t require an animal hooked up to machine to produce– our cheeses benefit from lower saturated fat, zero cholesterol, and more.
