Dr-Cow Tree Nut Cheese

by Anne Paddock

Right across the Williamsburg Bridge on a quiet street (South 6th) in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, is a tiny store called Dr-Cow that makes tree nut cheeses that taste just like cheese, only better (and unlike any of the commercial non-dairy cheese substitutes sold in grocery stores). These organic, dairy-free, raw, and plant-based cheeses are low in fat, sodium, and calories, have no cholesterol, and are high in iron and plant protein.

At Dr-Cow, tree nut cheeses are made the same way exceptional dairy cheeses are made:  with three ingredients – milk, a culture, and salt – but instead of cow milk, Dr-Cow uses nuts (primarily cashews and macadamia nuts) which means, Dr-Cow cheeses contain no gluten, no casein, no soy and are lactose-free. And, yet, they taste incredible.

So what makes these tree nut cheeses taste so good?  Of course, the ingredients are key. It’s not just what they use (all organic ingredients) but what they don’t use (no preservatives, stabilizers, artificial ingredients, or additives of any kind). By sourcing only the best organic plant-based products and not heating any of the ingredients over 120 degrees, Dr-Cow protects the nutritional integrity of the cheese during the fermentation process.  And, all of this translates to a delicious tree nut cheese that is firm but creamy and seriously addicting.

Dr-Cow cheese are available at their storefront in Williamsburg, at retail locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn, California, and Florida (see the stocklist on the company’s website) and through their on-line store:  Or, call the store directly at 718-496-7212 for the day’s selection which they will fed-ex.
