Frequently Asked Questions

How long does plant-based cheese remain fresh?

On average, our pre-packed vegan cheese stays fresh for three months, but it should be consumed within a few days of opening. Max&Bien cheese should be kept refrigerated and in an airtight container to prevent it from drying out.

What is the best way to store the cheese?

Just as with non-vegan cheese, our plant-based cheese should be kept in the fridge. Store it in an airtight container to prevent it from drying out. We advise against putting it in the freezer – and let’s be honest, our cheese is so tasty that you’ll want to eat it immediately!

What is Max&Bien plant-based cheese made from?

All our products are 100% plant-based, which means they contain no ingredients derived from animals. We apply traditional cheese-making methods to ingredients such as potato starch. Our focus on using local ingredients results in various sustainability gains, including lower carbon emissions, reduced water consumption and less food waste thanks to a longer shelf life.

Is there a risk that once I’ve tasted your vegan cheese, I’ll never want to go back to eating ‘traditional’ cheese again?

Based on the feedback from many cheese-lovers, we have indeed heard that there’s a chance you might end up hooked. But there’s only one way to find out – and that’s to try it for yourself!

At what temperature should Max&Bien cheese be served?

Our 100% plant-based cheese is at its most delicious when served chilled.

Where can I find serving suggestions for Max&Bien cheese?

Our cheeses are a welcome addition to any cheese board, but there are lots of other ways to use vegan cheese – such as grated onto a pizza or bowl of pasta, crumbled into a salad or sliced in a sandwich or croissant.

Is Max&Bien a certified organic producer?

We don’t have organic certification for our products just yet, but we’re working hard to make this possible in the future. To be kept updated about the latest developments, sign up for our newsletter or follow us on social media!

I’ve heard that your vegan cheese is addictive. Is there a support group I can turn to?

So far, everyone has managed to stick to the RDAC (Recommended Dietary Allowance for Cheese)! But don’t worry: we’ll be there for you if you need us! 😉

Is vegan cheese uncommon?

Yes! In the Netherlands, standard cheese is never vegan because cheese is traditionally made by curdling milk to separate the solids (curd) from the liquids (whey). A lot of cheeses aren’t even vegetarian, as the curdling process is usually triggered using an enzyme from the stomach lining of slaughtered young cattle, such as calves.

Is your cheese only aimed at vegans?

Definitely not! We want to inspire people to eat plant-based food more often, which is why we have created our delicious cheese alternatives. Nevertheless, we have kept vegans in mind; we boost the nutritional value of all our cheeses by adding vitamin B12, which is lacking in a fully plant-based diet.

Is Max&Bien vegan cheese gluten-free and lactose-free?

Yes! Our non-dairy cheese contains neither lactose nor gluten.
