So, what is vegetable rennet?

Vegetable rennet is a natural coagulant used in cheese making to curdle milk and separate it into solid curds and liquid whey. It is derived from the stomach lining of young ruminants or from certain plants, such as thistle, fig leaves, or nettles. As a plant-based alternative to animal rennet, vegetable rennet is ideal for vegetarian and vegan diets. It is also favored for its milder flavor and consistency, which allows for greater control over the cheese-making process. Vegetable rennet can be used in a wide range of cheese varieties, from soft and creamy to hard and aged.
