Sustainability of plant-based cheese

According to FAO, cheese is considered to be the second most consumed dairy product in terms of milk solid, mostly in Europe, North America, and Oceania. The use of cheese has been done commercially in several products and residentially for culinary purposes. Plant-based cheese has presented a new pathway to reduce the stress laid on natural dairy-based cheese for fulfilling the commercial requirement as well as daily requirements.  The dependence on natural dairy resources has impacted the environment in terms of global warming, overexploitation of animals, and foodborne diseases, therefore the key players in the plant-based alternative foods have focused on developing plant-based cheese as a sustainable product. Numerous variants of cheese alternatives are developed to be beneficial for people suffering from lactose intolerance, diabetes, malnutrition, and others. The plant-based cheese is manufactured as a cholesterol-free, good source of protein and micronutrients, low-fat content, high fiber along with the variants in flavor, and improved palatability. 

The key manufactures are inclined toward diversifying the product line by increasing the sources of cheese such as soy milk, macadamia nuts, cashews, almonds, pecans, pine nuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, coconut, flour, root vegetables, aquafaba and making them available in different forms such as shredded, cream cheese, block, and sliced, soft cheese, parmesan cheese, cheese dips, and others.
