Treeline Treenut Cheese
Treeline Treenut Cheese makes dairy-free cheeses mainly from cashews. Their philosophy is based on the fact that cow milk is good for cows, but bad for people, and that growing up drinking milk from cows and continuing it into adulthood can have adverse health effects such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, bone disease, bowel irritation and stroke. Treeline Treenut Cheese’s goal has brought a healthy alternative to cheese that everyone can enjoy.
