June is National Dairy Month. It has been celebrated in America since 1939, to help promote the consumption of dairy foods and as a reminder of their nutritional benefits.
Dairy products are rich in calcium, vitamins A, D and protein. They are also high in saturated fat, cholesterol and some can be high in calories and lactose, which makes them unsuitable for people who have to follow special diets, are lactose intolerant or have dairy allergies.
People who can’t consume dairy products due to health reasons or because they simply choose not to, such as vegans, can still enjoy the same benefits by using dairy alternatives.
GO VEGGIE offers an extensive line of great tasting products that are lactose and cholesterol free, and lower in fat, saturated fat and calories than their dairy counterparts. They also contain protein and a significantly higher amount of calcium per serving.
From cream cheese, shreds, mini bars, “Parmesan” topping and singles, these cheese alternatives allow you to enjoy your favorite dishes without giving up any of the health benefits, flavor or cheesiness!
If you’ve never used cheese alternatives before and are looking for some ideas on how to work with them, check out these recipes. You will love them!
