Artisanal Aged Cultured Cashew Cheeze

Why Cashews?

We have chosen cashews for three reasons: Sustainability, Taste and Health.

Cashew nuts are a very sustainable option for cheese alternative products. Cashew trees grow in the wild in a natural rain forest environment and require no extra maintenance or water.

Even with the transportation the carbon footprint of the final product is 1/10th of that of traditional cheese.

The mild but sweet taste of the cashew nut is relatively easy to mask in the cheese, resulting in a product that taste like a real cheese rather than a nut product.

From a health standpoint, cashews are full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and are also free from cholesterol.


Which ingredients do you use?

The basis for all our products are: organic cashew nuts, revitalised water, Himalayan salt, and plant-based cultures then, depending on the product, we add organic and locally produced spices and herbs.


Where are the cashews from?

We work exclusively with a cashew producer in Tanzania. We have chosen our partner carefully due to their transparency, environmental policies and workers conditions. They have built one of the  largest, most modern cashew factories in the world and are oversee the entire cashew chain from seed to shelf.


How long do your products last?

Our products are fermented and naturally preserved but we recommend to consumed them within 5 days of opening.


What about the shelf life?

Our cheezes are vac packed in a compostable pouch which guarantees 8 to 10 weeks of shelf life.

Our mould-ripened cheezes have a 3 week best before date.


Is your packaging recyclable?

The packaging of our aged cheeze is 100% recyclable and plastic-free.

The cardboard box can be recycled as paper and the eco-pouch is plant based and compostable.

Our mould ripened cheezes are wrapped in regular cheese paper at the moment and we are still looking for better alternatives.


Can I freeze your cheeze?

Yes, the aged cheezes are ok to freeze. They might change a bit in the looks and texture, but they are safe to eat. We do not reccomend to freeze the mould-ripened cheezes.


Does your cheeze melt or stretch?

Our cheeze softens when heated but it does not stretch. This is because it has no casein or other melting agents in it. 


Are your products organic?

All our products are 100% organic certified and fairtrade. 


Are the cheese gluten-free and without soy?

All our products are gluten-free, soy-free and of course lactose-free.


1 kr of each cheeze sold goes to the animals?

Yes, we are committed to supporting the animals, we donate 1KR of each cheeze we sell per year to different Swedish animal rights organisations, that fight everyday to protect the welfare of the animals.
