• A company named Daiya has nothing to do with the electronics world, but I spent more time there than any other display.
A company representative said it was displaying dairy-free cheese-alternative products at the show because it wants to share the product with people who like innovative products.
The company’s slogan is “deliciously dairy free” and after sampling more than my share of pizza and grilled cheese sandwiches, I was certain that if you didn’t know what the product was, you’d think it was made with 100 percent natural cheese.
The ingredients are all plant-based, making it vegetarian, lactose-free, kosher and cholesterol friendly.
