Artisanal cheese from India that you must try today!
In a country that is obsessed with dairy and animal products, there still are some sane brands that will deliver healthy and nutritious food without compromising on taste!
Before you read this let us give you a gentle disclaimer, this article is no way written to enforce a food belief. Veganism is a choice and no one should be entitled to follow it. We are here to give you a point of view about the new happenings shaping the face of India. Veganism, though, still in a nascent stage, is generously growing, thanks to a few entrepreneurs and brands that are urging to change the age-old psyche of the way we consume food. We all know that the food business is highly commercialised and backed by market trends. The recent Amazon fire and the Australian bushfire are reason enough for us to be aware of our choices and make smarter decisions. And if your new year resolution involves making a significant lifestyle change by going vegan, then these are some great brands you should definitely look out for!
Did you know that Good Mylk's founder Abhay Rangan is the youngest Indian to make it to the Forbes Asia 30 Under 30 list? Now that is a reason enough for you to believe in a brand that makes oats and cashew milk, peanut curd and vegan butter and mayonnaise that is not only accessible but also affordable. Not just that, all the products from the brand are tasty too and can easily be incorporated in your daily Indian food.
Our favourite: The oats and cashew milk that is a fabulous alternative to dairy milk and doesn't turn slimy on heating.
