Cheesey news:

Vegan “Dairy Identical” cheese made from animal-free casein will launch in 2023.

Startup New Culture has found a way to create animal-free casein using a precision fermentation process that gives its dairy-identical vegan mozzarella the traditional color, melt, and stretch. Its first mozzarella product is described as having “the same taste, texture, melt, and stretch as the cheese we all know and love.” But it’s also animal-free and planet-friendly.
