Hi there and WELCOME to our website!
Terra Nut Cheese is a vegan cream cheese company from Wellington, New Zealand.
We’re committed to making our products as minimally processed and healthful as possible.
Our cream cheeses are made of whole food, plant based and mostly organic ingredients: cashews, purified water, New Zealand sea salt, dairy-free probiotics, herbs & spices.
They're all plastic-free and certified vegan.
Although our cream cheese might fool cheese lovers, we don’t like comparing them to dairy, nor we’re trying to imitate dairy-based flavours. We truly believe nut cheeses are amazing products in their own right and are the new real thing.
OUR CREAM CHEESE
PLAIN / NATURAL CASHEW CREAM CHEESE
Probably the healthiest and most versatile cream cheese in the world! Its pleasant, natural and tangy flavour will make you doubt it’s vegan.
Great in a wide range of dishes: cheesecakes, icing, sauces, sushi etc. (check out our Healthy Recipes page!)
Quite thick by itself, add a little bit of water to get almost-instant sour cream.
Ingredients: whole cashews*, purified water, NZ sea salt*, vegan probiotic.
Glass jars, 200 or 400 grams.
DILL & GARLIC CASHEW CREAM CHEESE
Of course, we HAD TO include one with dill! It reminds us of Eastern Europe, and that part of the world is close to our hearts.
Love this one, and it tends to be our friends’ favourite.
Delicious (or should I say dill-licious!?) herbaceous and garlicky flavour.
Spread on a whole grain toast, or mix with some water to create the perfect sour & creamy dip, almost identical to Classic Kiwi onion dip.
Ingredients: whole cashews*, purified water, NZ sea salt*, dill, garlic*, vegan probiotic. *organic ingredients
Glass jars, 200 or 400 grams.
SMOKY CASHEW CREAM CHEESE
Smoky, tangy and super versatile cream cheese, full of organic goodness.
Great on bagels, sandwiches or as a dip when mixed with water or an instant Mac and Cheese sauce.
Ingredients: whole cashews*, purified water, NZ sea salt*, nutritional yeast*, smoked paprika, hickory liquid smoke, vegan probiotic.
Glass jars, 200 grams.
SO... WHY NUT CHEESE?
Does cheese grow on trees?
Not most of it nowadays, but in Terra we're convinced: the cheese of the future will grow on trees. More precisely, it'll be made of nuts, which, as you know, grow on trees.
Here's WHY our nut cheeses are awesome:
1. They're made of few simple, natural ingredients: whole, organic cashew nuts, purified water, NZ sea salt, herbs and spices. No oil or artificial preservatives.
2. They're vegan, which means no middle moo, just awesome plant-based ingredients. We're proud members of NZ Vegan Society and NZ Vegetarian Society, all our products are officially Vegan Certified.
3. They're full of probiotics. These little guys are friendly bacteria that are good for your digestive and immune system. Probiotics help maintain or restore your body's proper bacterial balance.
4. Nuts are super heathy: they are packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fibre, protein and good fats. You get all these healthy nutrients from our cream cheeses.
5. They're incredibly versatile, the amount of meals you can make with them is literally infinite. Take a look at our Healthy Recipes section to get inspired!
6. All our packaging is recyclable, biodegradable and plastic-free. We use glass jars for our cashew cream cheeses, and the Smokey Cashew block comes in cardboard boxes, wrapped in unbleached parchment paper.
7. We give back. Since we launched, we've been donating part of our earnings to support good causes. This part of our business is very important, check out our Mission page to find out who we support.
8. They're tasty. No, in fact, they are delicious! Honestly, they never last long in our fridge, you should test yours. Maybe you'll become as nuts for nut cheese as we are :)
For these reasons and many more, we think the future of cheese is absolutely nuts. To us such perspective looks happier, healthier, more compassionate and sustainable.
