Galaxy Rice Cheese slices are now vegan! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rockon.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rockon:"> I don't think anyone else eats this brand besides me, but hopefully now more people will <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> I haven't really had a chance to try the new veganized version, but as it was before tasted MUCH better then most vegan cheese. I'm going grocery shopping tonight so hopefully I can find some (they just redid it, so after clearencing out the old product are just starting to restock).

I just started to "warm-up" to rice products in the last two months. I use to HATE rice milk, but now I think it tastes pretty good. Infact, I think I'll go drink some...<br><br><br><br>
I'll see if I can find some galaxy rice cheese next time I'm back in a HFS (on vacation and so using the regular grocery stores at the moment- I noticed how much my city was vegan-friendly as I searched for vegan cheese today)

I saw like 2 packages, and both had gone bad <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/blank.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":|"> I'm going to assume the grocery store people were just being idiots and didn't refridgorate them right away, probably had them sitting in a corner for awhile. Oh well. I'll have to wait till they get more in.

They still make the non-vegan ones, it's just that they now make a vegan version as well. The vegan one has a purple label on it that says it's new and vegan. And it doesn't come in mozzarella.<br><br><br><br>
My parents eat the non vegan ones and would always say how good they were, and I always wondered why they wouldn't make one that tastes like that, but is vegan... So I'm really happy that they finally came out with a vegan one!

'fraid it does. I'm looking at the package right now. It says "Vegan" on a purple package and "mozzarella" right below.<br><br><br><br>
And, oh my heck! Looky here: <a href="http://www.galaxyfoods.com/ourbrands/usa/vegan.asp" target="_blank">http://www.galaxyfoods.com/ourbrands/usa/vegan.asp</a>.<br><br><br><br>
The leftmost example is mozzarella. They also have it in slices.

The company now makes two kinds of vegan cheese: soy cheese and rice cheese.<br><br>
The ones in the purple package that Nigel linked to are <b>soy</b> vegan cheese.<br><br><br><br>
For those of you who don't care for soy cheese or have soy allergies, here is the link to the <b>rice</b> cheese that the OP was talking about:<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.galaxyfoods.com/ourbrands/newproducts.asp" target="_blank">http://www.galaxyfoods.com/ourbrands/newproducts.asp</a><br><br><br><br>
Note: The company makes both vegan and non-vegan cheese. All of the soy cheeses on the page Nigel linked to are vegan. Only the ones on the bottom half of the new product page I linked to are vegan. The mozzarella super stix shown on the new products page have whey in them.

Regardless, they sell vegan mozz. without whey. Get over it. I was trying to support the spirit of the OP.<br><br><br><br>
Bottom line - the product is available in "American" and Mozzeralla slices, <i>Vegan</i> style.

lol ok guys come on, argueing over vegan cheese now? Anyway, I've tried the Vegan soy cheese they make and I didn't like it at all. It's the rice cheese I'm a fan of <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/notworthy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":wayne:"> I'm surprised to see they changed what kinds they sell though, they used to have American, Mozzerella, and Swiss. Also, I don't think they're going to be selling both, they're just selling the vegan slices now (though perhaps some stores still have the left over unvegan ones to sell, that's probably why you see both).

Yeah I was talking about the new rice ones. I don't like the soy ones. I think they'll probably keep making both kinds of rice cheese, because they've been making both vegan and non-vegan soy cheese for years. Some people are picky and want it to have the exact same texture, meltiness, etc. as dairy cheese and you are never going to get that in a vegan cheese (at least, not until someone discovers how to reproduce the properties of casein). Personally, I'm quite happy with the vegan ones! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Nigel,<br><br><br><br>
I never meant to imply that the soy cheeses on the page you linked to were not vegan. The non-vegan mozzarella I was referring to was the one on the new products page. I certainly didn't intend to start an argument about cheese. lol<br><br><br><br>
After rereading my previous post I can see how it my have been misinterpreted. I have edited it to make what I was <i>trying</i> to say more clear. I apologize if the old post offended you in any way and for any confusion I may have caused.<br><br><br><br>

Not at all. BTW - I offend myself everytime I call it "cheese!"
