Delicious Vegan Items in the Sickles Red Bank Cheese Department!
Vegan cheese is not just a replacement for regular cheese, it is its own specialty. It’s not about completely replicating the flavor, but it is focused on having its own unique and delicious experience to offer. Here at Sickles, we believe it’s important to try everything because you never know what you’ll end up discovering – LIKE these two new lines of vegan cheese Treeline and Conscious Cultures.
Let’s answer the big question before you even ask it! Why do vegan cheeses use cashews? Vegan cheese companies use cashews as the base for their cheeses for their delicious taste, creamy consistency, and health benefits. Cashews have zero cholesterol and contain heart-healthy monounsaturated fats that help the heart to function well, lower blood pressure, and keep cardiovascular diseases at bay. They are also high in protein and fiber. Vegan cheese can be great for when you want to replace the cheese in your life with a healthier alternative.
