I really miss cheese and have been looking for something to take its place. I have stumbled across a vegan cheese.....here is the web site...
vegusto.co.uk
It has a level of sat fat!
For those of you who are all over this, would you think in small portions it would be acceptable?
Hi

I'm really sorry, but even vegan cheese is a no-go on OMS. If you check the ingredients list, you will see that it contains "vegetable oil and fat (eg coconut)". Such oils are very bad for people with MS.

Processed vegan food is as bad as any processed food. Just because it's vegan doesn't mean it's healthy.

If you search this site, you will find some ideas for cheese substitutes. Also, there are recipes online for making 'cheese' from tofu, cashew nuts etc. Here is one recipe:

I'm not sure how long you have been following OMS, but you will find that your tastebuds change. I loved cheese, but haven't touched it for over 3 years, and I really don't miss it. The same with chocolate.

Sorry not to give you the answer you were hoping for, but I hope you find something suitable to satisfy your cravings!

Hi Rachael,

Thanks for response.
Had already dismissed it, 5 mins after finding it.
Have been on diet for a month now and to be honest not finding it to bad and have lost that last bit of weight that losing has been elusive for years.
The more recipes I try I will end up with some favourites which will satisfy.
Look for the Vegan Cheese book, Artisian Vegan Cheese by Miyoko Schinner, then you can make alternate milk yogurt, Soy, Almond, Rice or Oat milk, then make the yogurt, then make cheese from the yogurt.

The recipes are relatively simple, and taste pretty like the cheeses that they are trying to counterfeit.

Cheese is a big one for me too, so you can find some of Miyoko's video's on Youtube.
Be well, live long and prosper!
I empathise with you! I still dream about Parmesan.

While I have not checked out the whole vegusto product range, the ones I looked at contained fats that sure not recommended within the OMS programme (coconut/Palm). Without knowing where you are based the following may or may not be any good to you:

UK + some continental European outlets:
https://www.nutcrafter.co.uk - sell a range of cultured nut milk 'cheeses'. No added fats of any kind. Hand-made so not cheap but a rather nice occasional treat!

USA
Foodie writers in the US rave about the vegan 'cheeses' made by Kite Hill and Miyoko's Creamery (some of the Miyoko products contain fats not compliant with OMS so one would need to check the details).

Farrier has already mentioned the book by the owner of Miyoko's Kitchen on how to make your own vegan cheese. It gets good reviews on Amazon.co.uk:

The food cravings DO get easier. Good luck!

The OMS site & forum are brilliant! Thanks, everyone! :D
I consume very little nuts because of the Omega-6 content, but sometimes I do, with limitations of course. Last time I went to a wine-and-chees party, thinking, oh gosh, I will be the only one who is only drinking :D.

But no! My friend made a very nice vegan cheese with different spices (in form of small balls, covered with paprika, green pappers etc.), based on this recipe: http://minimalistbaker.com/garlic-herb-vegan-cheese/ -> it is really good so you really have to be strong not to eat up the whole!!! :)

I wish you good luck and all the best!
What a great friend!!
I have purchased a delicious pre-made cashew cheese here in Australia:

The recipe you have posted sounds very similar and I will give it a try.

I have made the following vegan feta cheese recipe and it, too, is lovely. Best after a few days.
