Is Feta Cheese Suitable For Vegans?
Whether you’re thinking of making a Greek salad, or had other culinary intentions, keep reading to learn if feta cheese is vegan.
Feta is a style of salty and tangy brine-cured cheese that can range in flavour from mild to sharp. Its famed origins lie in Greece where it’s synonymous with Mediterranean cuisine.
Is feta cheese vegan?
The answer here is a pretty straightforward no. As feta cheese is made from the milk of sheep and sometimes goats it isn’t suitable for anyone on a fully plant-based diet. Vegans will not only abstain from eating meat, but also all animal products or other foods that are made with the use of byproducts too.
