Vegan Cheddar Cheese Yeast

Write a Review

A dry inactive yeast extract that has a very strong "Cheddar Cheese like flavor" and is used as simple way to turn any nut, grain, legume, or root based cheeses into amazingly flavored vegan cheeses. It is often used to help create Vegan dairy free and lactose free cheese-like dishes, spreads, and sauces. It can also be used to increase mouthfeel flavor notes of soups, sauces and stews.  Due to strong flavor only a small amount is needed in use and a typical bag would last a home chef 6-12 months of usage.




  • Inactive yeast, Salt
  • Yeast is grown on beets
  • This mix IS NOT Nutritional Yeast but comes from the same mushroom and yeast/fungi family called Saccharomyces Cerevisiae. This is the family of live yeast used in bread, wine fermentation, beer fermentation, etc.  It has been inactivated (no longer alive) through a high temperature heat process on a steel drum.

    Strong flavour

    Posted by Valerie on 2nd Nov 2017

    Great product. All natural and vegan...brilliant. It has a nice sharp, salty, umami flavour that gives a much more realistic cheesiness to dishes, much better than nutritional yeast does. A little goes a long way as it's strong. I think it will make a great flavour enhancer to many dishes even those that do not require a cheesy flavour. I will definitely be buying it again once I have run out.

    XCHEDAR is truly AMAZING! The flavor of cheddar cheese that I have missed since I have become vegan. I use it when making Mac&Cheese, in salads, sauces, dips and anything that requires cheese flavor. The best thing is that it is Gluten Free and Sugar Free! A product that is once tried, you would make sure that you always have at hand. Love it!

    A very easy way to get cheese flavour into your vegan creations - also to be sparingly used, so the quantity bought will last you a long time. However, I personally prefer natural cheese-making by fermentation and don't like the artificial flavour, so... ok, but not for clean eaters or people who like experimenting.

    This stuff is great! I make a cheesey like sauce with potatoes & carrots and this makes it extra delish. I am almost out and will be reordering again.
