I am writing this in anger and I feel bad, even though it was an accident. So I haven’t had pizza in months (since I became vegan), so I decided I would mak a pizza and use vegan cheese, so I walk up to the vegan section and the market, and I see that they ran out of daiya mozzarella cheese, so I look around and see “Go Veggie Cheese”, ans on the cover it says “made with rice” and “cheese alternative” so I got excited that I would finally have pizza (vegan pizza) and as I am ckeaning up after enjoying my pizza, I look at the ingredients to see if I can give some to my sister who has gluten allergies, so I look where it says “contains” and it says “contains milk”. So now I’m just upset and confused why it said cheese alternative if it contains milk. .___. So its just a warning…. Moral of the story: buy daiya mozzarella cheese if you want to make pizza,
I’ve had similar experiences, but usually it’s other people buying something “vegan” for me without even realising it’s not:
“I used vegan cheese for this pizza so you can have it, it says it’s lacto-free, it’s the one with the cow on the front, right?” D’OH!
So sorry you had that happen…it’s happened to a LOT of people. I guess they recently changed their packaging to try to prevent it…only the purple ones are vegan and they say “Vegan” on the front. I’m happy they did that but they it took a long time for them to get the message so lots of people had to learn the hard way. Stick with the purple Go Veggie if the crazyyumful Daiya isn’t available but ALWAYS check the ingredients on anything if it doesn’t clearly say vegan on the package.
