We’re reviewing a second vegan Parmesan alternative today, and this one’s from Violife. If you’re interested in other options, check out our recent review of ‘Flavour Fusion’ by Good Carma – an almond-based product that’s available in a few different flavours.
Violife Prosociano comes in an authentic wedge shape, with nicely designed packaging. It’s currently sold at Tesco and in some independent food stores.
The cheese is a solid block that looks authentic. It grates easily, and there are no issues with it being too soft/breaking while grating, which is sometimes the case with vegan cheese.
The cheese has a pretty strong smell/taste, and we reckon it could fool a non-vegan. It adds some nice flavour to pasta dishes, and you don’t need to use much. It melts pretty well when mixed into sauce and has an authentic texture.
If you’re a fan of Parmesan, we’d definitely recommend giving this cheese a try. It grates well, tastes and smells authentic, and melts nicely. If you’re not keen on strong cheeses, we’d recommend sticking with regular Violife, or trying Flavour Fusion, which has a much milder flavour.
