- Plant-based diets are becoming more popular; but cheese alternatives are limited.
- Trumpkin has developed a cheese alternative from pumpkin seeds which contains healthy fats and minerals, as well as provides the proper texture for making vegan cheese.
- Their pumpkin seed cheddar cheese spread is expected to be launched this June.
