Thai Startup Launches Healthier, Tastier Vegan Cheese

  • 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. 

With a greater awareness of animal cruelty, the negative environmental impact of the dairy industry, and health issues, more people are opting for plant-based diets. The three years leading up to 2020, saw a 600% growth in the number of US consumers who identify themselves as vegan.
