Where is your coconut oil sourced?
The coconut oil we use is Fair Trade, organic and sustainably sourced from a supplier that sources in Sri Lanka and Philippines. Miyoko's is diligent about choosing the most ethical and environmentally friendly option every step of the way. "Fair Trade" means that the workers are paid a living wage. The supplier also helps to create infrastructure for the community, such as building schools and roads. There are no animals used in the harvesting of the coconuts.

We use a highly refined organic coconut oil for our products which is expeller pressed without the use of solvents.

Why do you use nutritional yeast?
Nutritional yeast is an inactive yeast grown primarily for nutritional purposes. It is high in protein and B vitamins, including B12. It is commonly in vegan food, as it contributes to an overall cheesy flavor and adds umami.
Do you make yeast-free products?
Yes, our butter and all five cream cheese flavors (Classic Plain, Savory Scallion, Fish-Free Lox, Everything, Cinnamon Raisin) are all yeast-free. In some cases, fermentation can naturally have yeast as a byproduct. If you are sensitive to yeast, we suggest asking your primary doctor or nutritionist to review our products on your behalf.
Do you add MSG to your products?
No, we do not add MSG to any of our products.
Where are your cashews sourced?
Cashews are grown in tropical climates and our organic cashews are sustainably sourced from Vietnam.
The company whom we source cashews from have undergone a Social Responsibility Audit. This audit is to ensure that they treat all employees fairly, pay a living wage, allow appropriate time off and shifts of a reasonable length, do not employ child labor, and have safe and appropriate facilities for employees.
Are your cashews organic?
Yes, our cashews are certified organic by Oregon Tilth (OTCO), a respected certification organization in business for over 40 years.
Do you use peanuts in our products?
We only use cashews and coconuts in our products, no other nuts are used currently.
What is miso?
Miso is a fermented paste made from grains and legumes. Traditionally, miso is made from soybeans, although we use a rice-based, soy-free miso. It is fermented with koji, which is aspergillus oryzae grown in rice.
What herbs are used in your Garlic Herb Wheel?
The organic herbs in the Garlic Herb cheese wheel are tarragon, marjoram and thyme.

How long will Miyoko's Cheese last in the refrigerator?
All of our products are perishable and must be refrigerated. Our products should not be consumed beyond a week or so after the best by date. Once opened the products are good for 2 weeks.
Can I keep Miyoko’s Butter out of the refrigerator?
No, our butters are perishable and must be kept in the refrigerator.
Can I freeze Miyoko's Cheeses?
Yes! All Double Cream cheese wheels, Cultured Cashew Butters, and Oat Butters freeze beautifully.
Our Organic Cashew Mozzarella and Organic Cashew Smoked Mozzarella have a slight texture change after thawing, and become easier to crumble.
While our Aged Cheeses can be frozen, it’s best just to keep them refrigerated and consume them within their shelf life.
We do not recommend freezing our Cheddar, Pepper Jack, Winter Truffle, and Cream Cheeses as the texture will degrade while thawing.
