aiya is the hottest new dairy-free product that I've seen in a while. I first posted about it a year ago and it's made my blog several times since.
Why all the attention? Because of the extraordinary claims Daiya makes.
Daiya is a revolutionary new dairy-free vegan cheese that tastes, shreds, melts and stretches like dairy based cheese. Daiya is not made with casein, the protein found in dairy products or soy, common to many other non-dairy cheese alternatives. In fact, Daiya does not contain any common allergens, animal products or cholesterol.
A non-allergic vegan cheese that melts like real dairy cheese can, dare I say it, rule the world! Or at least, lasagna.
That's what Missy Berggren says on her blog at MinnPost.com.
The Daiya cheese was gooey and tasted great, and the flavor of the sauce tastes the same as the traditional recipe. The best part though? It reheated well in the microwave! I feasted on this lasagna for days and it reheated really well each time.
Now, I don't want you to think it tastes exactly like regular cheese, because it doesn't. But it's by far the best substitute I've tried - and the consistency makes it awesome!
