We have an exciting announcement!! Avellana Signature Cheeses have a new name and a new ingredient: Avellana Hemp and Hazelnut Signature Vegan Cheese! We’re super excited about the shift because it makes our cheeses SO MUCH MORE AWESOME. The body of our cheese is now firmer, less oily, and more beautiful while maintaining our usual unique Avellana flavor. Using fresh milk made from organic hemp seeds together with fresh hazelnut milk makes for a creamy, slightly nutty and ridiculously delicious vegan cheese.

Hemp seeds are a well-balanced and easy to digest vegan protein source that includes all of the essential amino acids. Hemp has many other benefits including antioxidants and minerals, abundant fiber, chlorophyll, vitamins and omega-3 and -6 essential fatty acids. Hemp seeds are arguably the most nutritious seed in the world making them a hearty and healthy addition to our Signature cheeses. Best of all, hemp seed is incredibly eco-friendly, requiring less water, fertilizers, and land than other plants used for similar purposes.

We’re counting the days until we can use Oregon organic hempseeds, but in the meantime our organic hemp hearts are still grown in the Pacific Northwest Canadian province of British Columbia. Give it a try and let us know what you think! Saving animals and protecting our environment has never been so delicious.

Smoked Paprika: This is one of our bestselling cheeses. If you like mild and smoky umami, this cheese is for you. The Paprika peppers are roasted and smoked, then ground into a rich and deep red powder. This smoky spice blends well with hazelnut and hemp cream, adding another layer of complexity to the already smooth and nutty cheese.

Version 2

Italian Herb: Another best seller, our Italian herb is a piquant, earthy spice blend (organic Basil, organic Oregano, and organic Rosemary) is a perfect partner for our savory cheese, creating a creamy and satisfying herbed experience.
