New cheeses for convenient eating habits
Analogue cheeses are often better known as “cheese alternatives”. This group of cheeses consist of vegan cheeses and processed cheeses which contain some dairy product, but not enough to qualify them to be called real cheeses.
Analogue cheeses have gained popularity, due to their cost-effective production as they are able to replace some milk ingredients with cheaper vegetable supplements. Analogue cheese has also gained popularity among producers due to the simplicity the manufacturer gets when producing this product.
The process for producing these cheeses is fairly simple compared to ‘real cheeses’. Furthermore, analogue cheese’s popularity is related to the convenience food sector, where the focus is on lowering the cost while extending the supply.
