Image
miyokos liquid mozzarella best vegan mozzarella 2022 awards badge

To revolutionize the pizza cheese industry, Miyoko ingeniously threw away the rule book to craft the finest vegan pizza mozzarella by focusing on the desired end result: delicious meltiness. Rather than creating a traditional solid block of vegan cheese that is shredded, Miyoko stripped out the solids and ingredients that hinder meltability. For example, did you know cheese shreds use anti-caking agents to prevent clumping, which ironically prohibits melting? Go figure. She removed all that stuff and cut straight to the melt with this first-of-its-kind, revolutionary liquid cheese.

Miyokos have won a number of vegan cheese awards thoughout the years but this is the first time they have won the vegan mozzarella category. You can see their awards badge on their page.
