I'm not vegan, but I'm trying to figure out which cheeses are made with animal rennet, so I can avoid them. Most cheeses just list "enzymes" which doesn't specify what kind. I really can't live without cheese...I'm sure many vegans said that too, until they tried....but for now, I'd like my cheese. I found one website that had a list....but if you have any other sources, it would help.<br><br><br><br>

we had a thread similar to this not to long ago. Perhaps it might help you.<br><br><br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/showthread.php?t=65488&highlight=rennet" target="_blank">http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...ghlight=rennet</a>

Thank you...yes, that's the same list I found too!<br><br><br><br>
I read on that other thread that all cheese-making processes include slaughtering calves.....that couldn't be true, if they didn't use animal rennet, right? I understand that if a company only uses microbial enzymes or rennetless cheese for <i>some</i> of their products, then their process would include slaughtering for the other products.<br><br><br><br>

That may have been a reference to the fact that most commercial dairy production involves impregnating cows (to get the milk production), and then slaughtering the resulting calfs for veal.<br><br><br><br>
As to rennet per se, yes, one can indeed make cheese without using animal rennet.

Don't forget the slaughtering of the dairy cows when they are no longer producing at peak levels. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I created a thread entirely to rennet free cheese brands..just look up the threads I created to find it. I'm too lazy to do it myself.
