Aviko Rixona creates plant-based cheese made from potatoes

There are many reasons people are increasingly moving away from animal-based food products. This is causing a boom in plant-based foods, which are growing at a time when consumers are looking for foods that are healthier, more environmentally sustainable and animal-friendly.

For fruit and vegetable producers, the rise in plant-based alternatives is an industry game changer.

Aviko Rixona, a globally operating producer of dried potato products, uncovered another sector potatoes may be able to enter — cheese. The company launched Potato Cheezz, a cheese-style product made from potatoes.

Since Potato Cheezz is salt free, fat free and lactose free, it may be a healthier option compared to traditional and other plant-based cheese options, and it features a similar look, taste and texture to cheese.

Available in 10-kg blocks, Potato Cheezz serves as an alternative to cheese in snacks, fillings or finger foods, and is also available in other versions for use as pizza toppings and similar uses.
