Pretty tasty but must be enhanced with spices, salsa, or other flavour boosters to disguise the strong tapioca taste! Does not really taste like mozzarella but is the closest one can get without having the real thing. Before pregnancy, I had a serious dairy allergy (fingers crossed my baby's help me to beat this!) and was stuck either making raw cheeses and spreads from scratch or looking for dairy free alternatives! This was my number one choice. While no one in my family was convinced by this substitute, I loved the fact that it was casein free and every ingredient on the package is natural and recognizable making this a great health conscious decision. Will most likely buy this product again if I return to having dairy allergies once my pregnancy is over :)
Very good option for vegans and dairy free people. Has a similar taste and texture to real cheese. Would recommend heating it up to get the real cheese effect.
I recently started switching my diet to a Vegan one. This was one of the first things I purchased because I am a cheese-aholic!
Any kind of substitute I find is never gonna be quite as good as the original, but i most definitely wasn't disappointed. I think the only way to fully enjoy this product is when it's been melted. Like on pizza, grilled cheese sandwich, or in an omelette or something.
I also was actually fairly pleased with the price point. Most bags of cheddar cheese that are slightly bigger are about the same price as this bag of "cheese." If you can get it on sale then it's pretty much same equivalent to a bag of normal shredded cheese.
I also like their cheddar too.
I purchased this to make home made pizzas. It didn't have the desired melting and stretching effect as advertised, but it did the trick to adding a creaminess to my pizza. It provided the cheese texture that I wanted for my pizza. I tried this on a sandwich however and did not like the taste whatsoever. For texture purposes it was fine, but for flavour, really not great. It also molded quickly and for the price I was disappointed.
This isn't as good as the pepperjack cheese, but it is nowhere near as bad as their cheddar. This is still a very edible option from Daiya.
This is a shredded mozzarella cheese which works well as a topping for various things, but I tend to use it on hone-made pizzas. It's absolutely not going to taste the same as real mozzarella, nor will it melt the same, but it's a workable substitute.
Just like their other shreds, this product will last a long time when kept frozen. I find that the mozzarella is a bit longer and thicker than the other varieties, so it takes a tiny bit longer to naturally defrost. If you're just making a pizza, you don't have to worry about that. Just take some out of the bag and sprinkle it. This crumbles quite a bit on my hands when I touch it, and it leaves a really greasy residue, so I always have to wash my hands really well.
Just like the cheddar, I find that there's a bit of an aftertaste with this, but it's not quite as bad. Still, if I find a better non-dairy mozzarella, I will probably switch brands.
