Heck yeah! (I'm in upstate NY if any of you all are ) I've actually got a store about 2 hours away that carries it (I checked on the site)--I'm thinking of either driving there or seeing if I can possibly order it through my local hfs...

Thanks for that.

Anyone in Mass want to split some cheese?

ETA: The vegan store is in MD so maybe shipping wouldn't be horrendous.

I think I may give this cheese a try but just for a treat. I don't think I would eat it on a daily basis. If I could make it, it would be good (any ideas yet WhoMe )

FairyRae, thanks for the heads up about the NY store. I have family all over and may be able to get some.

Too many times it seems that things pass just to have a build up and dairy is a BIG one.
OT, but crunch_mama, if it's a buildup reaction, then *maybe* you can figure out if adding dairy causes any nutrients to get out of balance, and rebalancing those will help you keep dairy. FWIW, for us, raw dairy increased DS' need for magnesium (a little) and methyl b12 (a lot - raw dairy is high histamine, and he seems to need more methyl groups to handle the added histamine). I think adding a major group like dairy back in can change nutrient needs quite a bit, and if we don't adjust to that, those build up reactions can happen. Same for us with sals - if we eat more sals, we need more b6 to keep processing the sals OK. I wonder if it might be the case for a lot of things where people get a bucket or build up type reaction (vs. a pretty quick reaction within a few days).

I will definitely be keeping an eye on this. I know that I will certainly be thinking about magnesium, the cal/mag balance has been on my mind a lot lately. We have been doing lots of epsom salt soaks lately and if need be I might buy some Natural Calm- depending on how much dairy is added in- as we had good luck w/ that in the past. Anyway, though we will be waiting until the beginning of the year. I am very apprehensive as well to see how this new little one handles the dairy. Lily reacted almost immediately to it, but I have also done a lot of healing since then as well- being over a year now gf- time will tell.

Chlobo - I will have to run through the ingredients again, but according to the "does not contain" list there is no corn, so maybe the xanthan gum is corn free like Namaste. I will email them. The other issue is pea protein, but if that's the only problem I would be willing to try it.

Anybody know what the "natural vegan enzymes and natural vegan bacterial cultures" are? And what their source is for citric acid? They've got to come from somewhere....

I emailed them (not about the corn) and they said it could ship ups ground b/c it will only take 2 days. So shipping won't be awful. Let me know.

Bumping this up... I had to look this thread up because I thought I would see if I could get our local pizzeria to try this. They have gf crusts we could have and offer vegan cheese which of course has soy in it. Anyway, the Daiya site said that it is available at our Whole Foods stores now so I thought ya'll might be interested in knowing that.

I've read the same, that it's available at WF, and the Amy's mac and cheese that's gf and dairy free is there too (as opposed to the GF mac and cheese that's real cheese, that my kids loved, that gave DS diarrhea for a couple days, I don't remember if his mouth rash came on for that too).

never did sub to this (not that we can have it) but doing so now
I know that UNFI carries it over here fwiw, thanks to my co-op's catalogue.

I really like this cheese a lot. It's nothing like the other imitation cheeses. My dd is intolerant to both dairy and soy and for some reason this stuff gives her diarrhea. I know it's dairy and soy free so not sure what about it bothers her system but am pretty sad that she can't have it as it's a really good substitute and I was so excited when we first tried it.
