Dan’s Power Plant creates Fauxmaggio through a process of culturing cashews & macadamia nuts with plant-based probiotics The perfect alternative to cheesy spreads for those that have chosen to seek healthy alternatives to traditional animal-based cheeses, are vegan or on a non-dairy diet. We produce 4 spreads: Green Onion & Chive, Pepper Jack, Garlic & Herb, and Smoked Paprika & Garlic. Our Pesto is a delicious and fresh blend of basil, parsley, walnuts, macadamias and a special recipe that includes our plant-based Fauxmesan (a parmesan-style cheese aged 3 months). We have 2 aged cheeses as well: Aged Rainbow Peppercorn & Aged Coconut Ash, both are aged 1 month to a semi-solid cheese that slices and spreads very well, perfect on a cheese platter.

All of our spreads are active probiotics and our pesto is the only fresh vegan pesto on the market that
Fauxmaggio is made with nuts so we aren't able to source all of our ingredients locally but we strive to do so whenever possible.
