How long does vegan cheese last: all the answers for you today.
When you go vegan, the first thing that you need to get yourself is a block of vegan cheese.
A lot of people love cheese, and I often come across people who miss cheese terribly. Luckily, there are some amazing vegan cheese alternatives, that often taste just like the real thing.

However, often, at least from speaking from personal experience, I tend to buy a bit too much vegan cheese.

How Long Does Vegan Cheese Last: All The Answers

So, how long can vegan cheese last?
Let’s find out!

Does Vegan Cheese Spoil?

Yes, just like anything, vegan cheese will spoil. Especially if not stored correctly.
It’s also important that you store the different cheeses correctly. I like to store the cheese slices in an air-tight container, tightly wrapped.
For shredded cheese, I tend to seal it tidily and store it in the fridge. Typically, wrap it in paper wrap, and tie it tightly.
As for cream cheese, it’s hard to store it well to avoid spiling sooner.
But a word of advice is always to scoop the cream cheese using a clean spoon. If there is any dirt, the cream cheese will spoil a lot sooner.

5 to 7 days should be enough for you to be able to eat it all up. After 7 days, throw it away.

Cheese slices don’t last as long as a whole cheese block. Why? Because they are sliced, means air penetrates them easier, making them spoil quicker.

How To Preserve Vegan Cheese For Longer

Can you freeze vegan cheese? Absolutely you can. Make sure you use a freezer bag or a container. Once the vegan cheese is frozen it can last for about 30 days before the taste starts to spoil. But it can last for as long as 3 months.
I like using excess vegan cheese. What’s really good about shredded vegan cheese, is I can just grab a handful of frozen cheese, sprinkle it on the pizza, and bake it straight from the freezer.
