The Best Low FODMAP Vegan Cheeses

The Best Low FODMAP Vegan Cheeses
The Women's Health test kitchen tasted dozens of vegan cheese products to find the best dairy-free options that spread, melt, and taste like cheese

To make the epic quest for an edible (and even delicious!) vegan cheese a little easier, the Women’s Health test kitchen (with the help of WH editors, other co-workers, and friends) put more than 80 different cheese-less cheeses to the test. The test covered every cheesy vibe in the book, including blocks, shreds, slices, cream cheeses, soft spreads, dips, quesos, and cheese sauces.

Some were nut-based, others coconut oil-based, and a few even touted tofu as their main ingredient. As they tested everything from smoked gouda knock-offs to garlic herb spreads, the WH testers shared their feedback candidly—and weren’t afraid to call it like it was (ahem, bland, chalky, or pasty).

Finally, after taste-testing every kind of vegan cheese under the sun, the team curated the best of the bunch. The result: 15 delicious vegan cheeses that can totally pass for the real thing. Read the article here.

Unfortunately, many of the cheeses contain cashew and high FODMAP ingredients. We've gone through the list and pared it down to those whose ingredients are low FODMAP.  Please cross check ingredients as they may change. Please note natural flavors are highly unlikely to cause IBS symptoms as they are in such small quantities.To quote the discoverers of the low FODMAP Diet:

 "Natural flavors or artificial flavors when they appear on ingredient lists will be highly unlikely to cause digestive symptoms as they are present in very small quantities." (Reference: The Complete Low-FODMAP Diet: A Revolutionary Plan for Managing IBS and Other Digestive Disorders - Sue Shepherd, PhD Prof. Peter Gibson, 2013)
