Two new ice creams by Valsioia – the Gran Specialità Caramello and the Gran Specialità Tiramisù

Veggy Malta tried Valsoia’s new ice cream tubs. The Gran Specialità Caramello and the Gran Specialità Tiramisù. It’s very difficult to tell you which is better of the two! As we are now accustomed, Valsoia has produced two other 100% non-dairy, naturally lactose free and vegan ice creams. The Gran Specialità Caramello is gluten free as well.  They both come in a convenient 210 g tub that can be enjoyed by the family (or on...

Two Crème by Valsoia to choose from

Veggy Malta tried out la Crème range by Valsoia. A choice of two deserts one vanilla and the other chocolate. These two deserts are pleasant to eat. I personally like both but prefer the vanilla though my daughter prefers the chocolate one by far. It is a nice simple desert that you can take after food, or as a snack if feeling hungry or even as part of your breakfast. You can leave it in room temperate, which means that it can be a...

Veggy Malta tries out Valsoia’s new coconut ice cream range. Valsoia has just launched a new range of dairy free ice creams just in time for summer. If you are one of those people (like me) who loves coconut, including chocolate coated coconut sweets, then you will certainly like this new range by Valsoia. The range comes in a box of 4 sticks or in a 300 g tub. But lets talk a bit about the taste! The mini sticks, are chocolate...

Amy’s Kitchen Manhattan veggie burger – tasty meat free burger

Veggy Malta tries out Amy’s Kitchen Manhattan veggie burger. A simple to cook, tasty, meat free burger. If there is one thing you want from a burger is taste and this Manhattan burger has ample taste. I obviously added some salad, tomatoes and a slice of vegan cheese and some peppers. I used a gluten free bun to keep this a completely gluten free meal. Along with it I made a simple side salad and some fries. Nothing out of this...

Summer is here – time for Valsoia ice cream

Summer is starting and so is the heat. Fortunately along with summer so come ice creams. Therefore (out of duty to VeggyMalta.com readers) I tried out Valsoia’s range of dairy free ice creams. I actually tried the three Valsoia’s tub ice creams currently available locally, yet having a peek at Valsoia’s website I can see that this summer we are in for quite a choice. Yet let me stop drooling over my keyboard and go...

Rice & Rice organic dairy and gluten free drink

Veggy Malta tried out Rice & Rice non-dairy drink. The packaging avoids stating the word milk, probably for reasons similar to issues that passed from the French parliament recently. Rice & Rice Drink by Probios is a non-dairy drink which surprise surprise is made from rice. To be precise it is certified Italian organic rice. What are the main elements of this milk alternative drink. The packaging calls out a number of them....

Valsoia Pizza Margherita – a healthy touch of Italy

Veggy Malta tried out Valsoia’s Pizza Margherita. The Pizza Margherita is considered by some as the simplest of pizzas. All you have is dough, tomato sauce, mozzarella (in this case Gustosino), salt, basil and olive oil.  But because it is so basic, it probably is the most complex. It does not forgive any shortcomings. The pizza margherita is an Italian tradition. Allegedly named after Margherita of Savoy, wife of King Umberto...

Valsoia Rice Milk – a sweet and low fat alternative to dairy milk

Veggy Malta tried out Valsoia’s rice milk. Rice milk as the name clearly implies is made from rice.  Whilst you can choose to make your own rice milk at home using rice, vanilla extract and agave nectar, I guess it’s far easier to pick up a packet of Valsoia. Furthermore Valsoia adds calcium,vitamin B2, B12 and D2 in the mix. As is the case for all Valsoia’s non-dairy milks, it is vegan and can be consumed by those...

Arla Lactofree cheesespread – it’s made from milk but still lactose free!

Veggy Malta tried out Arla Lactofree Spreadable cheese. Although I am not lactose intolerant, I was interested in knowing more about this product. As a starter, Arla Lactofree is still made from cow milk. So what is the difference? Why is it ok for people who are lactose intolerant? I did some digging and tried to understand how milk is converted in lactose free. Regular milk contains the milk sugar lactose. NHS UK explains this well....

Sheese – a 100% dairy free and vegan cheese worth trying

I tried out Sheese, a vegan alternative to dairy cheese. I wanted to try this out as cheese has always been one of the reasons that has kept me away from being vegan. So I went about to try three products, the Strong Cheddar style, the Mozzarella style slices and the Garlic and Herb creamy Sheese. I wanted to see if they tasted like the normal cheese they claim to substitute. I started out with the Strong Cheddar style. Now we Maltese...
