    There are many soy based cheese brands available now. Also many people can drink goat's milk and or sheep's milk without the distress of cow's milk and the same goes for cheeses

    I have never looked for them but I bet at a health food store or a bigger food chain they would have them.

    I too, unfortunately can't have dairy I've tried vegan cheeses which you can find at specialty markets. They are ok if you're really craving cheese, but to be completely honest, I'd rather just not eat cheese at all and not suffer (I'm allergic). Nothing will compare to real cheese, so it's not worth substituting, in my opinion. After not eating it for 2 years now, I don't even crave it. And I'm from Wisconsin

    There is a vegan cheese called Daiya that is also soy free. It is one of the best nondairy cheeses out there and it melts like regular cheese. It comes in wedges, shreds, and now they have a cream cheese line. Definitely worth checking in to.

    Re: Dairy free cheese..

    I really like the taste of it, but I have not had dairy cheese in over three years so my taste buds may have changed. I can't remember what real cheese tastes like. Even before becoming vegan I had an intolerance to it so it's been a while. However, my husband, who is an omnivore, really likes Daiya too. I have used it to make pizza and vegan spinach mushroom lasagna (with sweet potato and tofu for the "ricotta" and daiya mozerella shreds on top). I once made a grilled cheese sandwich with the Daiya chedder wedges and it was VERY good! Of course I had not had a grilled cheese sandwich in years but for some reason craved one that day. Daiya is the only nondairy commercial cheese I can stand. I don't buy it often though due to expense and lack of nutritional value. I was never a huge fan of cheese anyway. I normally use nutritional yeast to make "cheesy" sauces, and have made my own homemade "cheese" using cashews, agar flakes, and a few other ingredients to make sliced cheese. It doesn't taste anything like dairy cheese but the texture is similar and it has it's own unique flavors that I like, and more nutritional value.

    I believe dairy-free cheese is usually very high in sodium for a small serving. So if you eat 2, 3 or 4 servings, which is easy to do, your sodium intake will be sky high. The net result is less than healthy, in my opinion.
