What is the shelf life of Vegan Gourmet® Cheese?

The shelf life of Vegan Gourmet® Cheese is 120 days unopened and about 3-7 days after opening. To extend the shelf life, the cheese can be frozen after being shredded. Shredding before freezing helps maintain the cheese's texture and melting ability when thawed. We do not recommend freezing the whole blocks as the texture changes and becomes softer (not as good for slicing and shredding).

Does your Vegan Gourmet® cheese really melt?

Yes, it really melts! Just preheat your oven to 450* if you are cooking in the oven (if you are cooking a casserole at another temperature and you want to melt cheese on top just cook it covered and when it's almost done put it under the broiler for a few minutes.) Vegan Gourmet® also melts great on the stovetop or in the microwave.
