We have an extensive range of cheeses suitable for vegetarians and these
are identified by the symbol
Many of our cheese selections and hampers can also be modified to only
include cheeses suitable for vegetarians - the symbol
identifies where this is possible.
What makes a cheese suitable for vegetarians.
During the making of cheese an enzyme (rennet) is used which causes milk
to solidify. Traditionally, this enzyme was found in the stomachs of young
calves. The same enzyme is also present in a number of plants, such as
thistles, but in very small quantities. Most rennet used today is made
in the laboratory. Further information on what is defined as 'cheese suitable
for vegetarians' can be obtained from the Vegetarian Society.
