Alternative Cream Cheese Spreads

This application study presents two test methods for evaluating the textural similarities between vegan cream cheese alternatives and a traditional cream cheese spread. Alternative cream cheeses are often made with soy or nuts and were introduced to meet demand from people following vegan diets. The texture of alternative cream cheese heavily influences its acceptance as a viable substitute to traditional cream cheeses.
