Follow Your Heart Teases with Cream Cheese and Sour Cream (That You Probably Can’t Have Yet)

Filed under: California Food Shopping

Follow Your Heart has made a very soft launch of their new their store or at the Woodland Hills, California Whole Foods. Wider distribution will happen, but it hasn’t yet.

Possibly even more exciting, and definitely more frustrating, is the cryptic reference to “Vegan Gourmet Sour Cream Alternative” in the cheesecake recipe on the cream cheese page. Save some saliva for that.

Tofutti has been pretty much the only game in town for sour cream and cream cheese. I guess I like Tofutti as much as the next guy, which is to say: not very much, but it’s better than nothing. FYH’s track record is damn good (Their cheeses and Vegenaise are hands-down winners, the best of their breed), and I’ll be shocked if their new stuff isn’t great.

    I must be the next guy after that, because I enjoy both Tofutti’s cream cheese and sour creams. I might still give this stuff a try if it makes it’s way over to the east coast.

    Vegenaise is good, but while the cheese is melty, it’s still “ehhh” for me. I’ll put hummus on my pizza before using it.

    Tofutti creem cheeze tastes good, but it’s really bad for you with the trans fat, as far as I recall.

    Pretty much all vegan cheese has trans fat cause they are all hydrogenated. I didn’t like FYH cheese when I tried it, I find it easier to go without. I have pretty much given up on vegan cheese. I was quite impressed with Tofutti Cream Cheese actually, and it worked great in my cream cheese frosting :D

    My mom (who is pretty much the anti-vegan) likes Tofutti cream cheese, strangely enough. That and Silk chocolate soymilk are the only vegan things I’ve ever gotten her to enjoy.

    mm i’m a big fan of all of tofutti’s products, the cream cheese and sour cream are the smoothest analogs, their ice cream sandwhiches are the bizzle, and their sliced cheeses are excellent as well, but i don’t bother with cheese sandwhiches much anymore. FYH cheeses are the best that i’ve had for block cheese, but expensive, I just make my own cheese for pizza, i’m a nyf nut. nyfin around cutcutcutcut. oh and i find nayonaise to be the best mayo. good to see progress in developing our foods, i always try a new one when i find it, you never know what the next vegan breakthrough will be! anxiously awaiting tofucken, the turducken alternative ;]

    Hmmmm, hydrogenated fats are not good at all.

    Has anyone looked into raw food diets? They are vegan (there are one or two variants that use animal products but it’s easy to discern what ones are the vegan ones) and all the ingredients are 100% natural.

    There’s also plenty of foods that can provide fats and curds that are vegan (but not necessarily classed as raw food as they can require some heating, depending on methods used), so I don’t see why any un-natural ingredients should be being used in vegan foods.

    Another one to watch out for is ‘inverted sugars / syrups’ or ‘modified starches’ or anything with corn and soya that doesn’t explicitly state it is not from GMO sources.
    Not that only corn and soya are crops that have been abused using those methods.

    Apart from being un-natural, those kinds of processes use up energy – and they just don’t need to be done to make food ingredients. Same goes for concentrated foods – it’s a scam when there’s concentrated juices costing less than fresh juices, because overall the processing involved in manufacturing concentrated foods then re-constituting them uses up loads of time and energy – way more than just squeezing and pressing juices ever could.

    Most embarrassing comment thread ever! Um, hardly any of the vegan cheeses are hydrogenated, and Tofutti makes trans-fat-free versions of both the cream cheese and sour cream, though they taste pretty iffy.

    I for one am looking forward to the FYH cream cheese.
