Product Review: Cheese Style Spread Subsitute (Dairy-Free, Gluten Free, Milk Free) by Tesco Free From

Free from anything cheesy spread

Purchased in Tescos (Earls Court, London).

Quite excited when Tesco assistant showed me the fridges section of their new Free From range. I was interested in the Dairy free soya alternative to Cheese Spread as I am not eating any cows milk products at the moment.

Added to a white sauce for a Pasta bake and was impressed that the flavouring enhanced the sauce. However,  this spread is made largely from water, coconut oil and soya protein: it has a very strange chalky texture, not really Dairylea- like! The taste is strange as it has the tang of cheese but didn’t do it for me. I think I would rather not have cheese than something pretending to be cheese but actually doesn’t really taste or feel like cheese. (I acknowledge that Dairylea isn’t a cheese either but at least it’s yummy!)
