General

What's Yeti Foods?
Yeti Foods is a maker of plant-based cheese that tastes amazing and is great for you and the planet. Our first cheese is called Yeti No. 1.
What are the ingredients?
We like keeping it simple. We only use soybeans, sunflower oil, water and salt.
Is Yeti Cheese vegan?
Yes, we only use plant-based ingredients.
How do you make it?
We use the same process dairy-based cheese makers have been using for thousands of years. First, we make milk from the soybeans. Then, we coagulate the milk and put the resulting curds into cheese forms. Next, we press the curds. When the pressing is done, we remove the cheese from the form and salt it. Finally, we ripen it. Read more about our process here.
How does it taste and feel?
Our first and currently only cheese, Yeti No. 1, is a soft white cheese that has a creamy texture. It has a mild, slightly acidic taste. If you need to compare it to more known varieties, we would put it somewhere between a Ricotta and a Feta.
What's the best way to serve Yeti Cheese?
Yeti No. 1 is super versatile. We love to crumble it and put it into our salad. Or use it to make a cheesy and creamy pasta sauce. You can also go simple and just eat it with a piece of fresh bread and some olive oil. If you're a sandwich lover, why not try it out in your sandwich or bagel? We're sure that there are more creative ways to eat Yeti Cheese - surprise us!
How long does it stay fresh?
We guarantee that Yeti No. 1 keeps its texture and taste for at least 1 week after you've bought it.
Can I put Yeti Cheese in the freezer?
While Yeti Cheese is better enjoyed fresh, it's absolutely possible to put your cheese in the freezer to eat it at a later point in time. In our experience, it tastes just as good after it has come out of the freezer.
Where can I buy Yeti Cheese?
You can order Yeti Cheese right here.

Health and Environment

Is Yeti Cheese healthy for me?
Yeti Cheese is healthier for you than animal-based cheese. Yeti Cheese contains soybean proteins which are complete proteins, meaning that they contain all essential amino acids that your body needs. It has similarly high protein levels as dairy-based cheese. Compared to animal-based cheese, Yeti Cheese contains less saturated fats and zero cholesterol. Furthermore, it contains a lot of minerals such as calcium, phosphorus and magnesium.

However, keep in mind that cheese is still cheese and not a kale salad.
I read that soy is bad the for environment. Is that true?
No, it's not true. The soybean plant is one of the most environmental-friendly plants ever. Compared to other plants, it doesn't need a lot of water or land area. Furthermore, it can grow in many different parts of world (unlike cashew, almond or coconut). It also fixes nitrogen to the soil, meaning that farmers need to use less fertilizer.

The dairy lobby is pushing the narrative that soy is bad for the environment. The problem is that a lot of soy is used as animal food. In fact, more than 85% of the soybean that is grown is used as such. Therefore, soybean is often wrongly associated with having a negative environmental impact and being responsible for deforestation.
Where do you get your soybeans from?
We source our soy directly from the farm Biohof Lex in Bavaria, Germany.
Where do you get your sunflower oil from?
We source our sunflower oil directly from the farm Weinmannshof in Bavaria, Germany.
Is Yeti Cheese organic?
All our ingredients are organic, but we are not yet certified as organic.
Is Yeti Cheese GMO?
No, we don't use genetically modified ingredients.
