Dreamfarm Develops Healthy Plant-Based Italian Cheeses Made From Almonds

They are also free of many of the ingredients used in other plant-based cheese brands, such as coconut oil and modified starch. The products have received a Nutriscore of A (the highest possible) in recognition of their nutritional benefits. “After two years of testing, we are very satisfied with the first two products we are bringing to the market. It wasn’t easy to create healthy plant-based alternatives to two iconic Italian products while maintaining a similar texture,” said co-founder …
