MyLife, an Australian plant-based food manufacturer, has launched a variety of vegan cheese products in Coles supermarkets under its BioCheese brand.
Four new products – including a marinated cheese and a grated version of its vegan parmesan – have joined the brand’s existing range of plant-based cheddar blocks and slices, feta, halloumi, and dairy-free butter.
Recommended on its own, on toast or in salads, BioMarinated retails for AUD 14 ($10) and is marinated in Australian Extra Virgin Olive oil, garlic and herbs.
Meanwhile, BioCheese Grated Parmesano retails for AUD 7.50 ($5.40) and is described as having a hard, gritty texture and a fruity and nutty taste.
MyLife’s Original BioCreamy is free-from additives and preservatives and is said to be light on the stomach and ideal on a bagel, in desserts or paired with strawberries. The dairy-free cheese spread retails for AUD 6.50 ($4.70).
BioCheese Pizza Shred – which is made with coconut oil that provides a mild nutty flavour – is already currently listed in Woolworths but will now be available to purchase at Coles. According to MyLife, the vegan cheese melts and stretches easily and evenly, without going oily.
According to MyLife, BioCheese was the first mover in the Australian plant-cheese market approximately five years ago.
“During these unprecedented times, our customers and their dietary needs remain top priority, and we’re committed to continuing to provide Australians with the incredible plant-based products that they have come to expect from MyLife BioCheese,” said Terry Paule, CEO of MyCo, creators of MyLife.
