Our artisa plant based cheeses are handcrafted in Tasmania, Australia using cashew nuts which are blended with filtered water, a little coconut oil and some Tasman sea salt, then cultured with dairy free probiotics.
After culturing, our fresh cheeses are packaged and ready for sale at 7 days old and our artisan range are aged for 6 – 16 weeks, depending on the variety.
Our cheeses are flavoured by Tasmania which means we add the finest ingredients sourced from our pick of the many local gourmet producers found in this beautiful island state. They are wonderful on a cheese board.
They aren't stretchy, melty pizza style cheeses but they melt beautifully in a sauce – from simple mac'n'cheese to a sophisticated mushroom stroganoff.
Dairy free, soy free, cholesterol free, gluten free, lactose free and with no added starches, gums or thickeners, artisa cheeses are
vegan friendly and suitable for those who are lactose intolerant.
The artisa fresh range of cheeses have a best-before date of 4 weeks from packing whereas the artisa artisan range of aged cheeses have a best-before date of 4 months from packing.
Kept refrigerated, artisa cheeses will keep for around 10 days once opened if wrapped loosely in a paper towel and stored in a plastic container.
Artisa will pack and send your purchased cheese in chilled boxes to anywhere in Australia.
