Focus on Immunity Boosting Properties of Vegan Cheese During COVID-19 Pandemic

Is Highly Processed Vegan Cheese Causing More Harm than Help?

Generally, vegan cheese falls under the category of highly processed foods, similar to vegan meat, convenience foods and frozen meals. This is evident since the revenue share of conventional vegan cheese is larger than organic vegan cheese in the North America vegan cheese market during the forecast tenure. Though highly processed vegan cheese tastes delicious and offers other benefits, its downsides such as high fat, oil, and salt can lead to undesirable health outcomes in consumers. Hence, brands are now increasing focus in organic products.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Brands are taking help of eCommerce to boost sale for vegan cheese products during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. The North America vegan cheese market is undergoing a significant change with the help of selective plant proteins and fats. However, mimicking nutritional properties of dairy cheese into plant-based cheese are potentially challenging. Hence, companies should focus on developing almond, cashew, and oat-based formulations to offer vital protein, calcium, and vitamins A & B-12 to consumers. The change in perception toward meat-based diet is translating into revenue opportunities for brands. Trademarks of vegan foods and drinks are increasing at a steady pace. Manufacturers are increasing their production capacities in coconut oil and starch-based vegan cheese products.
