    Casein also contains lots of calcium and magnesium. When doing bodybuilding, i prefer to use casein as a protein source compared to whey protein. ,`;’`

      Hi Sage,

      I’m guessing that you’re a robot matching the word “Casein” and inserting a link, no more capable of assessing ethics than our cat. Otherwise you’d have read that – as Casein comes from the milk that mothers make for their own children – we don’t agree with taking it and using it for bodybuilding.

      But just in case I’m wrong and you’re sapient ….

      If you’d like to build muscles in a more compassionate way, the folks at Vegan Bodybuilding.com have lots of information on getting that protein and other nutrients.

    A problem with the taste test is that each type of vegan cheese has a different ideal cooking method. It takes experience to learn the best temperature and cooking time for each type of “cheese”. Placing them all in concentric rings on the same pizza meant that they were all exposed to the same temperature for the same length of time. When Daiya is overcooked, it becomes creamy. The taste testers all complained about the texture of Daiya, which tells me it was overcooked. Daiya takes only a few minutes to cook. You should cook the pizza without the cheese and then add the Daiya within the last few minutes of cooking. If it has melted so much that you cannot tell that it was sprinkled on in shreds, then it was overcooked.

      Good point. Thank you for commenting. But – looking at the photo – you can tell it was sprinkled on in shreds and hadn’t gone creamy. So, looking at it, do you still think I’d overcooked it?
