The Only Chickpea Cheese Maker Other Than Yourself !

Good PLANeT Foods is a U.S.-based company producing plant-based cheese alternatives, including products which contain chickpea protein but not as the predominant base which appears to be coconut oil. At this stage we can only find ChickP as the only producer of fermented chickpea isolate.

Grounded Foods is a U.S.-based company that started out using using chickpeas and but now focuses on using cauliflower and hemp seed ingredients to make a variety of cheese sauce and 'goat feta' style cheeses.

LegenDairy Foods is a German Company now called FORMO which is developing a variety of dairy products, including cheese, from microbial or precision fermentation using proprietary technology. It was rumoured they developed a 'feta' type cheese using chickpeas in the past.

So where can YOU fit into the product development process. Well it appears very easily if you are OK about using a ChickPea protein powder or straight-up canned Chick Peas.
