Canadian brand Daiya Foods is adding to its portfolio of plant-based cheese with the release of Mediterranean-inspired cheese blocks.
The releases include a Grilling Cheeze Block and a Feta Flavour Block.
Daiya’s Grilling Cheeze Block is inspired by traditional Halloumi cheese from Cyprus and is the “first” plant-based grilling cheese made from oats and chickpeas, with notes of garlic and herb. The cheese is designed to be grilled and pan-fried, with the ability to maintain its shape without melting.
Daiya’s Feta Flavour Block is made with certified gluten-free oats and olive oil and is “salty, tangy and bright with a semi-smooth bite”.
Dan Hua, vice president of marketing at Daiya, commented: “Our new artisan-inspired cheeze blocks, crafted with wholesome plant-based ingredients for an authentic Mediterranean taste, will inspire new tasty and robust creations and ensure those with dietary restrictions don’t have to miss out”.
Daiya’s portfolio of plant-based foods can be found in grocery stores across the US, including Kroger, Walmart, Target, Whole Foods, Safeway and Publix, as well as Sprouts and most natural food retailers.
