Cheese is the third most carbon intensive food (after beef & lamb), surprising isn’t it?
Once upon a time there was cheese... then there was animal welfare, and then climate change and a realisation that eating another animal's juice was a bit strange.
So what makes chizou different?
Plant-based and sustainable
We chose unprocessed cauliflower as the main ingredient for our vegan cheese because it's super local and sustainable. We try source all other ingredients locally too. Some, like coconut oil, does not grow in Belgium but rest assured, we're working on finding alternatives.
Versatile and easy to use
We chose to create a vegan grated cheese alternative as it's such a versatile product to have in your kitchen. Pasta, pizza, nachos, tacos, croque, gratins, raclettes... the opportunities for plant-based meals are endless. Let us know what tasty cheesy recipes you come up with!
melts like real cheese
It melts, it bubbles, it browns. Our vegan cheese melts best when cooked with oven dishes at 180-220 degrees and grills.
THE CHIZOU TEAM
We started our food revolution by launching a food waste fighting snack brand 9 years ago. Now we’re on our way to revolutionise alternatives to dairy, starting with cheese.
