‘Potato cheezz’: Aviko Rixona introduces innovative plant based cheese made from potatoes

There’s no more denying it: plant-based foods are booming, and consumers are increasingly gravitating towards food that does not contain animal products, says Aviko Rixona on its website.

The company says plant-based products are animal-friendly, environmentally friendly, and healthy. The rise of plant-based food is a game-changer for the food sector.

Aware of this development, Aviko Rixona – a renowned producer of dried potato products – was eager to explore the potential of extracting even more added value from potatoes. The company is now the first in the market to launch Potato Cheezz: cheese made from potatoes.

Potato Cheezz looks like cheese, tastes like cheese, and has a similar texture to cheese. Aviko Rixona says Potato Cheezz is salt-free, fat-free, and lactose-free. This makes Potato Cheezz many times healthier than cheese and all other plant-based cheeses, according to Aviko Rixona.

Potato Cheezz is completely in line with the growing consumer demand to eat vegan and eco-friendly.

Potato Cheezz is said to be the ideal replacement for cheese in finger foods, snacks, or fillings in meat substitutes. A special version of Potato Cheezz is available for use as a pizza topping or gratin. This Potato Cheezz is available in 10-kilogram blocks.
