Why does my cashew cheese with beetroot turn brown after a few days?
The red color of the cooked beetroot in the cheese fades after 3 to 4 days of storage in the refrigerator. This is normal because over time the colorants break down. Beet juice will keep the pink color in the cashew cheese longer.

How do I get the red color out of my cheesecloth?
Wash the cheesecloth with cold water after use. Then place it in cold water for 30 minutes. It can also be washed at 30°C.

How does the cashew cheese get a firmer consistency?
1) Store the cashew cheese overnight in the refrigerator for further thickening.
2) Extend the draining time of the vegan cheese. This will help it gain firmness.
3) Add 1 tsp of transglutaminase to the fairment cashew cheese recipe at the beginning and blend with the rest of the ingredients.

Do I need a starter culture to ferment vegan cheese?
Yes. Sometimes probiotics are used as starters when making vegan cheese. However, since the dosage is often not reached or not all bacteria are included, a specially prepared bacterial culture should be used to make vegan cheese.
